It will be the veterans from Sri Lanka and England who will face off in the Road Safety World T20 on Friday in Raipur. Both the teams will enter this contest on the back of contrasting results in their previous fixture. While England faced a 8-wicket defeat against South Africa, Sri Lanka did pretty well in their game against Bangladesh Legends stitching a win by 42 runs. Sri Lanka Legends now stand at the second position with 4 wins in 5 matches and England having lost just once in three games, expect a thrilling game between the two games on Sunday.
While Upul Tharanga and Tillakaratne Dilshan have been amongst the run-scorers for the Sri Lankan side, Dilshan has also contributed brilliantly with the ball so far along with Rangana Herath. For England, it has revolved around the duo of Kevin Pietersen and Monty Panesar and a lot will depend on their performance even on Sunday.
