After thumping Australia Legends on Sunday (11 September), Tilakaratne Dilshan-led Sri Lanka Legends will look for another victory when they face England Legends on Tuesday (13 September). Dilshan played a captain’s knock against Australia and Dilshan Munaweera was a great support to the captain. The two batters stitched a 200-run partnership and helped Sri Lanka Legends post a mammoth total. Now, they will be hoping for a similar show against England. Meanwhile, England Legends will be without their captain Ian Bell. Chris Tremlett will don the captain’s hat in Bell’s absence.
Tilakaratne Dilshan played a gem of an innings against Australia and he will be the hot favourite for the captain’s choice in the fantasy XI. Dilshan Munaweera was also among the runs and can be included in the team. Upul Tharanga who comes to bat at No.3 for Sri Lanka Legends had a great first season and thus becomes a good pick. From Sri Lanka’s bowling department, Nuwan Kulasekara is the first choice considering his last match heroics. Jeevan Mendis and Chaturanga de Silva can also be included.
From the England Legends camp, Phil Mustard and Darren Maddy can be great picks. Chris Tremlett and Chris Schofield can prove to be handy with the ball for ENG-L and hence can be included in the fantasy XI.
