Sri Lanka Vs. England, 2nd Test, Nov 14-18, Fantasy Cricket Tips

England once again stamped its authority over the hapless Sri Lanka, this time in the longer version of the game, winning the first of the three tests in Galle comprehensively. The test win was special for the visitors for more reasons than one. Firstly, the English men tasted success at the venue for the first time, and secondly, they put their act together after being reduced to 103/5 in the first innings. On the other hand, there was nothing much to write home about for the Lankans that yielded to a superior side in their own backyard without any resistance.

Now the focus has shifted to the second test getting underway on November 14 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium located in the eponymous Sri Lankan city. The visitors will be once again banking on the top order constituted by Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings to provide a solid start. The former played well for his 23 runs prior to getting run out while the latter hit a splendid century to power his team to a position of strength. While skipped Joe Root will like to be back among runs at number three, Ben Foakes, who shaped the win for his team in the previous match with a breathtaking century on debut, is also a player to watch out for.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is in a state of mess, depleted by injuries, retirements and action hassles. Captain Dinesh Chandimal will miss the action in the remaining two tests due to injury while Akila Dananjaya, the mystery off-spinner, is the latest casualty of a suspicious bowling action. Worse still, the seasoned leg-spinner, Rangana Herath will no longer be the part of the dressing room, as he has called it a day after a successful career spanning across 8 years.

On paper England looks the better side and apparently enters the second test as the favorites. The hosts have to put up their best foot forward in all departments of the game to match the prowess of the visitors and escape the embarrassment of a clean sweep looming large.
