Cricket Betting: England vs Sri Lanka T20 International

Jason RoySri Lanka will end their England tour with a one-off T20 game at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Tuesday, July 5. The hosts have completely dominated the islanders, which was expected, and the Lankans are yet to defeat England in any games across all formats.

England’s domination was completed with a big win in the final ODI. The series could have been different had Sri Lanka managed to win the first ODI. After a brilliant start with both the bat and ball, the Lankans somehow allowed Liam Plunkett bully them to a tie. After that, it was all England as the hosts won every game fairly comfortably.

The England T20 side, under Eoin Morgan and Trevor Bayliss, is going through an exciting transformation as was evident in the recent World Cup. Jos Buttler, Morgan and Jason Roy relish this format, as do their T20 specialists Sam Billings, Liam Dawson and David Willey. Watch out for the raw pace of Tymal Mills who has earned his place in the national squad for the first time.

The Lankans will hope to have better luck against England in the shortest format. Players like Kusal Perera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Matthews gives them a solid look but the absence of consistent performances is hurting them.

The presence of hard hitters like Dasun Shanaka and Matthews down the order gives some hope that their death-over game will improve. Watch out for the all-round abilities of Pervez Maharoof who is coming into the side after a long time.

England come on the back of a successful World T20 where they were runners-up to West Indies. Sri Lanka had an early exit from that tournament at the Super 10 stage itself. England have won just three of the seven previous T20 matches against Sri Lanka including a win in the World T20 early this year.

Backing England looks like the easiest option, but if you are adventurous, pick out a Sri Lanka win at odds of $3.25 at Ladbrokes. Roy is in great form for England and looks a good bet to be their best batsman at odds of $4.00 at Ladbrokes. For Sri Lanka, this could be Chandimal at odds of $4.50 at Ladbrokes.
