Their only loss yet came while chasing against Pakistan and Sri Lanka will like to exploit that area.Dream XI Fantasy Tips: England vs Sri LankaBatsmenEngland have several in-form batsmen. Eoin Morgan, the English skipper, was terrific against Afghanistan as he amassed 148 runs with a record 17 sixes. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow have also been in sublime form in the World Cup. On the other hand, Kushal Perera and Dimuth Karunaratne can be picked as teh batsman as both have amassed a couple of half-centuries for Sri Lanka.BowlersThe English pacers quicks Mark Wood and Jofra Archer will surely be the first names on the team sheets of many. They have been lethal with the new ball and should continue to do so against the Sri Lankans as well while Adil Rashid is more than a handy option to have in the side. Sri Lanka’s star bowler Lasith Malinga hasn’t been in the best forms off late but should be backed to provide a few breakthroughs against the mighty English.advertisementAll-roundersEngland boasts of having many quality all-rounders in their side. Chris Woakes should be your first pick, as he has picked up wickets and scored a solid half-century against West Indies.
