ENG vs SL Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s England vs Sri Lanka Match 27 | TSR helps you with Dream 11 for CWC 2019.
Match 27 of the World Cup will be underway soon as England are ready to host a rather out of form Sri Lanka. Both the teams will be heading to Leeds to compete in the Yorkshire Cricket Ground. Going by current form, I have picked my Dream11 fantasy team in a 7:4 ratio favouring England.
ENG vs SL Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for ENG vs SL Dream 11
Jonny Bairstow: The English wicket-keeper has been in sublime form since the start of the IPL and shown the same form in the ongoing World Cup. He has scored 218 runs in five games at an average of 43.60 and a strike rate of 96.03. There’s a good chance that Jos Buttler might not able to get a chance to bat against a weak Sri Lankan bowling attack and hence Bairstow is the smarter pick for the game.
Batsmen for ENG vs SL Dream 11
Joe Root: The English batsman has been nothing short of destructive in the competition. Having scored 367 runs in five ODIs at an average of 91.75 and a strike rate of 99.72, Root is currently the fourth-highest run-scorer in the tournament. To top his batting performance he also has a couple of wickets to his name so far.
Eoin Morgan: Captain of the England side, Morgan is a power hitter, and can go big against almost any Bowler. He scored 148 runs in the previous game which included a mammoth 17 sixes. His individual score helped England push to 397 runs. The batting pitch at Headingley will be of advantage to him and to a very good English batting attack.
Dimuth Karunaratne: Sri Lanka’s captain is possibly the only reliable batsman left in the side. He has scored two half-centuries in the tournament, and has a batting average of 89.50. He fell just short of a century during the run-chase vs Australia scoring 97 of only 108 balls.

All-rounders for ENG vs SL Dream 11
Ben Stokes: Stokes has been one of the best all-rounders in the tournament. He has scored 120 runs, also picking up 5 wickets in the process. The 28-year old scored 89 runs in the tournament opener against South Africa. He’s been hitting the ball at the strike rate of 100+ and is the perfect batsman for the pitch in Leeds.
Moeen Ali: Ali has played only 3 games in the tournament, but in that time has accumulated 4 wickets and scored 53 runs. His strike rate of 136 is testament to the destructive hitting he possesses. The English all rounder has the economy of 5.48 and the average of 37.
Dhananjaya de Silva: It’s not been the best tournament for the Sri Lankan middle order. De Silva’s performance is living proof of the same. He has scored only 20 runs in the 47 balls that he’s faced over 3 innings. Despite that, he has managed to pick up two wickets and has the economy of 5.22. If the going gets tough, de Silva will most probably rise to the occasion to bail out Sri Lanka.
Thisara Perera: Compared to Dhananjaya, Thisara has done comparatively better with the bat. He has a strike rate of 120 and has scored 3 sixes in the tournament. There’s a lack of better options when it comes to Sri Lankan all rounders, which means I had to go for the best there was.
Bowlers for ENG vs SL Dream 11
Jofra Archer: England’s newest recruit has amassed 12 wickets in five matches at an economy rate of 4.89. He also has the strike rate of 22.41 and the average of only 18.08. The rookie cricketer has five maidens over to his name, too. He’s the strike bowler for England and his bowling exploits have earned him the VC role in my team.
Chris Woakes: Woakes has been incredible at the World Cup, and has been a surprise package for the hosts in difficult times. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have enough wickets to show for it. However, Woakes is useful with the bat. He has the batting strike rate of 103, with 93 runs to his name.
Isuru Udana: 31-year old Isuru Udana has been Sri Lanka’s best bowler at the tournament. He has 3 wickets to his name and a respectable economy and average of 5.73 and 36 respectively. He is arguably their only hope of taking down an unplayable English batting lineup.
