Road Safety World Series will witness another high voltage clash when Sri Lanka Legends come up against England Legends. Both the teams had a bright start to the tournament. While England Legends will be entering on the back of the only loss against South Africa Legends in their last game, things will be different for Sri Lanka. The Lankans will take on the pitch after win against Bangladesh. The exciting game between the heavyweights should turn out to be a treat for batting lovers as both the team have been excellent with willow till now in the tournament.
While both the teams will take on the pitch after different results in their last game, one can expect an action-packed clash. While England had their first loss of the tournament in their last game, Sri Lanka have not looked back after loss in the first game. Last time out, England’s strength could not work in their favour as the team was bundled at a meager score in the first innings. On the contrary, Sri Lanka have suffered a loss only to India, their first game, and managed to win all matches from then on.
With batting being the core of two teams, it will be interesting to see if Kevin Pietersen and Upul Tharanga further make the affair more interesting. For fantasy team, it is recommended to have more batsmen than bowler in one team, and a bowling dominant side in the second team in case tables might turn.
