Sri Lanka Vs England, 3rd Test, Nov 23 – 27 : Fantasy Cricket Tips

The 3 match test series has unfolded well for England so far, thrashing hapless Sri Lanka twice in a row to register an unassailable 2-0 lead and a top spot in the ICC Test team rankings. Well, for the Lankans, the downward spiral continues, as they failed to put together any resistance to the English juggernaut in the T20s, ODIs and now in Tests as well. Despite the fate of the series already sealed in favor of England, the final test scheduled at the Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo from November 23rd still generates interest. England will be pushing for a clean sweep, while Lankans will like to salvage some pride with a win or even a draw.

Skipper, Suranga Lakmal, will be asking his team to put together a decent showing in the Colombo test, particularly from the top order, which has disappointed thus far. Dimuth Karunaratne, the talented opener, was the standout performer and only exception with classy half-centuries in both innings. Although Angelo Mathews did hit his way to a strike-filled 88 run innings, his team needs him to carry on to a three-figure score. With Rangana Herath calling it a day, the skipper has to do the bulk of bowling to get the better of the English batsmen.

England, as the 2-0 score line suggests, has been playing good cricket and will enter the test as clear favorites. They will vouch for openers Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings, each having played decent knocks in the previous tests, for a solid start. While skipper, Joe Root, in-from Jos Buttler and all-rounders Ben Stokes, Moin Ali and Sam Curren will be expected to build on the start to take the team to a position of strength. The bowling also looks good with James Anderson, Jack Leach and Adil Rashid making life tough for the opposition batsmen.
