Analysis

Eoin Morgan’s men have clearly dominated the series so far, having sealed the deal by leading 2-0. In their previous encounter, all-rounder Liam Livingstone played a fine innings and also won the man of the match for his all-round performance. England won the game comfortably by 5 wickets (D/L method). With Jos Buttler missing out from the 2nd T20I owing to calf injury, he is likely to miss the 3rd ODI too. The hosts will look forward to a whitewash and may opt to bring in some fresh faces to their side.

Sri Lanka walk in the 3rd T20I having lost both the games in the series. The Kusal Perera-led side will aim to restore some pride by this game. Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis and Dasun Shanka have looked in good form in the series and will hope to make a match winning contribution for their team in the 3rd T20I.
