The 3-match T2oI series between England and Sri Lanka is set to kick-off on Wednesday. It will mark the beginning of the English summer for Eoin Morgan's side as they begin their preparations for the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup. On the other hand, the visitors will have a lot to prove on this tour having lost their last T20I bilateral series against West Indies in March. With some exciting talent on display in both sides, the fans are guaranteed a brilliant game of cricket in Wales.
Among the wicketkeepers, Jos Buttler and Kusal Mendis should certainly be a part of your fantasy side as both the players are the vital cogs for their respective sides at top of the order. If they get going, they can be in for a big knock and can give a lot of points. Talking about batsmen, David Malan and Jason Roy will be important for England as the duo will enjoy batting in England again after a challenging tour of India. Meanwhile, Pathum Nissanka and Danushka Gunathilaka could also be good choices.
Among the all-rounders, Sam Curran and Wanindu Hasaranga have been in good form recently and could contribute with both bat and ball. While Adil Rashid could be a good choice as a spinner, the conditions are expected to be much more favourable to pacers and hence you must have Chris Jordan and Dushmantha Chameera in your fantasy side.
