England vs Sri Lanka ODI World Cup

There’s no hiding the fact that England and Sri Lanka have been below par, throughout this tournament. The defending champions have their tournament on the line while the Lankan Lions will be looking to play spoilsport. I still feel this is England’s game to lose and they will rise to the occasion and win here.

  • England have won 8 of their last 10 matches against Sri Lanka (ODIs)
  • England have won 7 of their last 12 matches in the World Cups (ODIs)
  • Sri Lanka have lost 14 of their last 16 matches they played in India (ODIs)
  • Sri Lanka have lost 8 of their last 12 matches played in the World Cups (ODIs)

Head to Head


There have been 78 ODIs played between England and Sri Lanka so far, with 38 wins for England and 36 wins for Sri Lanka. There was one tie between the teams as well, while three ended without a result.

This is the first time these teams are playing since July 2021, when England won 2-0 with one match ending without a result.

England Form


England are 9th in the points tally with just two points from four matches. They had a 137-run win over Bangladesh but were otherwise defeated by New Zealand, Afghanistan and South Africa.

The problem for the defending Champions is the magnitude of their losses that has put their run rate to negative 1.248. The worry for England is their batting where none of the batters have aggregated more than 192.

Reece Topley has eight wickets in the tournament but is ruled out for England. They also face a big question over the use of their all-rounders.

England Team News


Moeen Ali could be getting back into the playing XI, while Sam Curran and Liam Livingstone may also fancy a game for England.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka are 8th in the points tally with two points from four matches. Their win came in their latest match by five wickets over the Netherlands but lost in the first three games against South Africa, Pakistan and Australia.

The Islanders continue to struggle with injuries as Matheesha Pathirana is now ruled out of the tournament. Angelo Mathews has joined the squad that is already light on their batting.

Sadeera Samarawickrama and Kusal Mendis have aggregated more than 200 in the tournament, but otherwise, they have struggled in the middle order. The biggest positive for the Lankans with the ball is Dilshan Madushanka who has 11 wickets in the tournament.

Sri Lanka Team News


Mathews is likely to get straight back into the playing XI. Dunith Wellalage is also likely to get back if he’s fit.
