Sri Lanka Board President’s XI
Sri Lanka Board President’s XI will be led by TAM Siriwardana in this cricket game. He had led his team in the first tour game as well which ended in a draw.
It was a good game of cricket for the Board President’s XI team. They managed to hold an International side to a draw and would like to do the same once again in the second game. Some of their players impressed in the first game. SMA Priyanjan scored 77 runs in the first innings and would have impressed the selectors.
There is no curb on the number of players to be selected for this cricket game. Hence, our prediction is of the inclusion of all the fringe players of Sri Lanka for this game.
Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka Board President’s XI playing XI:
- MMMS Cooray
- LU Igalagamage
- BKEL Milantha
- SMA Priyanjan
- PARP Perera
- TAM Siriwardana
- P Nissanka
- P Maduwantha
- DM Sarathchandra
- SMLD Samarakoon
- NT Gamage
England are going to be led by Joe Root in this cricket match. Root has been the leader of the test team for quite some time now.
They had a good outing in the first cricket game. They ticked on most of the boxes as Jos Butler scored a fine half-century, whereas the inexperienced players like Zak Crawley and Ollie Pope were among runs as well.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of the same set of players as the first cricket game for England.
Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:
- Joe Root
- Ben Foakes
- Jos Butler
- Stuart Broad
- Jack Leach
- Ben Stokes
- Joe Denly
- Sam Curran
- Ollie Pope
- Dom Sibley
- Chris Woakes
Expert Prediction: SLBP vs ENG
England’s tour of Sri Lanka has kickstarted with their first tour game. They are going to face Sri Lanka Board President’s XI once again before playing the first test match. England are going to play two test matches on this tour. Both matches are going to be part of ICC World Test Championship. Currently, on the points table, England are on the fourth spot with five wins out of the nine cricket matches played.
Sri Lanka Board President’s XI players would be looking to make things difficult for the touring side. Their sole aim would be to not allow England’s players to feel comfortable in this entire cricket game. Their own players would like to be at their best as any performance against a touring side is always respected and taken into consideration for future selection.
England, on the other hand, are currently suffering from a few injury concerns. Their three first-choice bowlers, James Anderson, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, are out injured and will not be taking part in this cricket series. In their absence, the opportunities lie with Sam Curran, Chris Woakes and Sakib Mahmood to take the baton of fast bowling.
They would have been happy to see Jos Butler amongst runs. They would have also noted the performance of spinner Matt Parkinson, who picked up four wickets in the tour game.
While the result of this cricket game will not matter too much, a loss here could hurt England’s morale before the first test match. However, keeping in mind the class of both teams and time constraint, our prediction is of a drawn game once again.
