SL-U19 Vs EN-U19 Dream11 : England look to hand down another trouncing to Sri Lanka when the two sides clash heads in the concluding league stage encounter.
The league stages of the Youth ODI Series involving England, Sri Lanka and West Indies comes to a culminating today with England and Sri Lanka taking on each other for the third time this series. Althouhg both the sides have assured themselves of a berth in the summit clash with the three wins apiece from five matches, this encounter is far from an inconsequential for either side.
It’s all down to the dual nature of ramifications for either side in this outing with both the set of players looking to assert their spot in their setups for the upcoming IC U19 ODI CWC in 2020. Also, with both these units slated to face off in the showpiece final, this is an encounter where either side will be looking to acclimatise each other one last time and bee well versed when the two clash heads a few days later.
And it’s England who head into the tie as outright favourites after dismantling and decimating Sri Lanka the last time around. The 4 wicket win saw them tear apart and walk all over Sri Lanka as their bowling unit ended up mincing up and lambasting Sri Lanka for a mere 113. And despite Sri Lanka’s best bowling efforts, the target was too small a one to work with, seeing England seal their way to a win with 17 overs in hand.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
It’s a surface which has conventionally favoured the bats and we should much of the same today as well with a hard, brown and solid surface being laid out for this one. The side winning the toss will be looking to come out and bat first and make the most of the batting friendly conditions in their favour.

SL-U19 Vs EN-U19 Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
The last time these two side splayed against each other, Kamil Mishara looked set to go on and craft a stunning knock before he was unfortunately runout. However, the opener came up with a 23 run innings, one which sees us repose faith in him for this one to come into our side for this one.

His side’s leading run scorer, Nipun Dananjaya came up with an intricate knock the last time around, a performance which added as a shot in his arm against West Indies U19. It was a gripping performance from him, one telling of the immense skill set he bears as a bat to see us hammer him down in our side for the day.
Sonal Dinusha is also being brought in from the side for the day while Dan Mousley will be our choice for the day from England after he top scored for his side the last time around with 43 crucial runs to take the past the finishing line.
SL-U19 Vs EN-U19 Dream11 All-Rounders
The 19 run cameo paired with the 1 wicket for him when he faced England in the bygone outing sees us opt for the lone pick of Ashian Daniel from Sri Lanka for this affair. Elsewhere, the English will find representation in the form of an entire trio, one which begin with the myriad and guile filled Kasey Aldridge, someone who has been the heart of the English side in the series.
With 2-18 in 7 overs the last time around, Joey Evison is also be brought in from the side along with Lewis Goldsworthy to wrap up our trio of selections from the English unit for the day.
SL-U19 Vs EN-U19 Dream11 Bowling Order
The 3-33 Sri Lanka’s Kavindu Nadeeshan sent down when the two sides last met against each other epitomised why Kavindu Nadeeshan is such a critical player for his side. In what was an astute performance by the bowler, he left his opposition in angst with an astounding spell with the ball to see Sri Lanka remain in the encounter despite posting a sorry target.
Dilum Sudeera will represent us as well for the outing while England have George Balderson find his place in his side after the frontline spearhead blew apart the opposition with his spell of 3-18 put Sri Lanka’s batting effort to bed.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aldridge will be our team’s captain for the day with Kavindu being the vice-captain.
