ENG Vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction, Match Preview, Fantasy Cricket Hints: Captain, Probable Playing 11s, Team News; Injury Updates For Today’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Match No 25 in Bengaluru
The defending champion of ICC Cricket World Cup England Today will face Sri Lanka in match number 25 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
England will aim to maintain their chances of advancing to the semifinals, while Sri Lanka, the 1996 winners, will be looking to secure a victory.
England and Sri Lanka currently hold the 7th and 8th positions on the points table, respectively. Both teams have secured one victory each from the four matches they have played thus far.
Both teams are expected to make numerous changes for this match. Sri Lanka has included former captain Angelo Mathews in the squad as a replacement for injured pacer Matheesha Pathirana.
However, Mathews has had limited opportunities to play ODI cricket in the past three years.
I will bat wherever the captain and coach want me to bat. It appears that I will be batting in the middle order.
The specific position is not of great importance to me; what truly matters is being able to contribute in any way possible to achieve a successful outcome. I am not particularly concerned about achieving personal milestones, such as batting at the top of the order or scoring hundreds or fifties.
Angelo Mathews expressed his willingness to bat in any position that the team requires and make a small contribution towards the team's victory.
He made this statement during the pre-match press conference in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
On the other hand, England will need to find a replacement for the injured left-arm pacer Reece Topley. Brydon Carse has been included in the squad, but there is a possibility that Chris Woakes might be chosen to replace him for the match against Sri Lanka.
In the case of Sri Lanka, Dunith Wellalage may potentially make a comeback to the team as a replacement for Dushan Hemantha.
