Sri Lanka lost two matches against England and recently two matches won from Ireland. From now it looks like the Srilankan cricket team got a lot of confidence after gaining two historic victories.

Sri Lanka team: MDKJ Perera, MD Gunathilaka, BKG Mendis, LD Chandimal†, AD Mathews*, S Prasanna, WU Tharanga, MD Shanaka, MF Maharoof, N Pradeep, RAS Lakmal.

England team: AD Hales, JJ Roy, JE Root, EJG Morgan*, JM Bairstow, JC Buttler†, MM Ali, CR Woakes, DJ Willey, AU Rashid, LE Plunkett.

Ben Stokes’ absence in England’s middle-order creates a minor dilemma for the selectors, who will surely be tempted to unleash Jonny Bairstow’s sky-high batting confidence, albeit at the expense of a modicum of team balance. Moeen Ali can expect to slot in at No.7, Steven Finn is fit to resume his role as the leader of England’s ODI attack, while Chris Woakes and David Willey provide contrasting swing options with right and left-arm respectively.

Eoin Morgan, the captain, is somewhat short of runs in recent England outings, but he is set to appear at No. 4. Sri Lanka’s batting order is anyone’s guess, let alone their actual line-up, following the contests in Malahide in which two nominal frontline batsmen, Kusal Mendis and Upul Tharanga, popped in at No. 8 and 9 respectively.

Seekkuge Prasanna’s devastating pinch-hitting in the second contest pillaged nine sixes in a thrilling 95 from 46 balls, so he’ll be ripe for another foray up the order if the mood takes him. Eranga’s absence leaves a vacancy in the seam-bowling ranks, so there is potential for a recall for the offspinner, Suraj Randiv.

Pitch and conditions

There’s little prospect of Trent Bridge offering the sort of 400 v 400 belter on which Nottinghamshire and Northants went toe-to-toe earlier this month. Since June 10, when the game against Derbyshire was washed out, the groundsman reckons the pitch has had four hours of sun and 100mm of rain.
