T20 WORLD CUP 2021: Match-29: ENG VS SL -England VS Sri Lanka Preview and Head To Head Stats


Sri Lankan Lions will face the Englishmen in a vital encounter on 1st November at Sharjah International Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. The encounter will be the last chance for Sri Lanka to remain in contention to qualify for the semi-finals. Sri Lanka has shown an all-around performance with both the bat and bowl. Wanindu Hasranga, the hattrick taker in their last match against the South African team, couldn’t stop Killer-Miller from snatching away the game. Sri Lanka lost the game, which they should have won easily. At the same time, England is yet to be defeated by the teams in their group. Englishmen have been dominant, and their bowling is looking a lot strong than other teams. The depth of their batting line-up has been the key to their winning cause.
