Preview:

England and Sri Lanka will meet in Sharjah in match number 29 of the World T20 Cup on Monday. It has been a contrasting build-up to this clash for both sides. While England have won all their three matches so far in the competition and have more or less put one foot in the semifinal, Sri Lanka have reached the Super 12 stage after topping the Round 1 Qualifying matches after which they have only tasted one win.

With England favourites to reach the final and perhaps even lift the title, it will be a stern test for Sri Lanka. However, both sides are former champions and with some stand out individual performers even in the Sri Lankan team, expect this to be a great game of cricket.

Analysis:

Pro-tip for the fantasy tip for this fixture is to fill one's side with as many in-form English players as possible. The way they have been playing, they will start this match as runaway favourites against Sri Lanka. Hence, the likes of Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Jason Roy, Adil Rashid and Tymal Mills should all walk into the fantasy side. Among members of the Sri Lankan team Wanindu Hasaranga should be a must, given the form he has displayed so far in the competition and the fact that he is fresh from a hat-trick in the last match. Kusal Perera, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanka and Pathum Nissanka could be the other options who could be considered from the Sri Lankan team along with Lahiru Kumara, who had an off day in the last match and Maheesh Theekshana.
