Match betting tips for today's ENG vs SL match,

With unbeaten scores of 68 and 79, Joe Root has been England's best batsman in the series thus far. In this ODI, he is a safe bet to be England's leading run-scorer. David Willey has taken 7 wickets in both matches with the ball and is a solid bet to be England's leading wicket-taker in this game.

For the second ODI at The Oval, Dhanajaya de Silva was introduced into the Sri Lankan lineup, and he scored their highest score of the series. In his run-a-ball 91, he struck 13 boundaries and is a good bet to be Sri Lanka's leading run-scorer in this match. Dushmantha Chameera went wicketless in the last match, but he got 3-50 at Chester-le-Street and could be backed as Sri Lanka's leading wicket-taker in this match.

Jonny Bairstow, England's wicket-keeper, has scored 29 and 43 with the gloves. He's also had two receptions thus far in the series. Kusal Perera, Sri Lanka's captain, and wicketkeeper scored 73 in the first game but was dismissed for a 2-ball duck in the second. In the series, he has only made one catch. In the last ODI, we recommend Jonny Bairstow as the best gloveman.

Match analysis for today's ENG vs SL match,

The second One-Day International between England and Sri Lanka proceeded as planned, with the hosts crushing the visitors by 8 wickets and clinching the series with one match remaining. Sri Lanka hasn't won a game on their limited-overs tour to England, and given the way they've played, they're set to go empty-handed. England, the defending world champions, have been in complete control and are on track to win the series 3-0 following a tense T20I series.

eng vs sl - teams preview

Teams preview for today's ENG vs SL match,


Jason Roy, who had been rested for the first ODI, made an early impression with a blazing 60 off 52 balls. With a dominating 140-run combination, Joe Root (65* off 87 balls) and skipper Eoin Morgan (75* off 83 balls) put the game to bed. With Root (who now had two unbeaten fifties in a row) and Morgan in the middle, and the likes of Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, and Sam Curran at the bottom, this batting order is simply too powerful. It's a deadly mix with Jonny Bairstow and Roy at the top.

England's bowling has also been outstanding. David Willey and Sam Curran, both left-arm seamers, grabbed all nine wickets in the last ODI, with Curran returning with career-best figures of 5-48. In the center, Mark Wood is as effective as ever. However, the squad may recall Chris Woakes in place of Tom Curran for the last ODI.


The highlight of Sri Lanka's innings was Dhananjaya de Silva's 91. Apart from him and Dasun Shanaka (47 off 67 balls), the rest of the team didn't do much. Pathum Nissanka and Avishka Fernando have both underperformed. If they want to challenge England, Captain Kusal Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, and De Silva will have to lead from the front once more.

Sri Lanka's bowling made an impression in the first ODI, but it was largely ineffective in the second. Dushmantha Chameera, who took 3-50 in the first encounter, failed to take a wicket in the second. As the English batters had a good time, Binura Fernando, Asitha Fernando, and Chamika Karunaratne looked bored. Wanindu Hasaranga was the only one who received assistance with his leg breaks, but even that wasn't enough.

Sri Lanka has lost every single game on its tour to England by a massive margin. It is a match of unequal and one that shows just how much Sri Lanka has fallen in recent times. Up next is the 3rd ODI against England, also the last match of this tour. Sri Lanka may have lost the series but there are still some very important ODI Super League points on offer.

England has shown that they are far superior to Sri Lanka in all departments in the first two games of the series. We expect Joe Root’s fine form with the bat and England’s dominance to continue into this match. Sri Lanka have produced useful partnerships during the series but must get their top order to fire with the bat if they are to stand a chance of victory. They can win this game if they can dislodge Joe Root early into his innings. Read more at Cricket Betting.
