ENG vs SL 1st T20 Dream11 Match Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Playing11, Captain, Vice-Captain – ENG vs SL Match Preview: The first of the three T20Is between England and Sri Lanka will be played at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Wednesday night. Both teams will be looking to get off to a winning start and set the tone for the rest of the series. Interestingly, the visitors have won three out of four T20Is on English soil and it will be interesting to watch if they continue to that.

Currently, the no.1 ranked T20I team, England will be looking to bounce back from their last 2-3 series loss against India in India and will start as favorites against the Lankan Lions irrespective of the previous records between the two sides.

The visitors haven’t been at their best in the recent past and are ranked 8th in ICC’s team rankings in the shortest format. Kusal Perera will lead the visitors who are coming off after facing a 2-1 defeat against Bangladesh in the 3match ODI series, winning the last game of the tour. Prior to this, the Sri Lankan Lions lost 2-1 to Windies in the 3 matches T20I series in March 2021.
