England vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI: Match Details, Live Streaming, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, Probable Playing XIs, Squads, Dream11 Prediction

England vs Sri Lanka: On Saturday, the first ODI of the series will be played between England and Sri Lanka. This game will take place at Leicester’s Grace Road. Under the captaincy of Chamari Attapatu, Sri Lanka clinched the T20I series 2-1 and put on an outstanding all-around effort. They will enter this game with a lot of confidence and hope to do well.

However, England will be disappointed to have lost the series and will be motivated to make a strong start in this One Day series. They recently defeated Australia in the Ashes limited over series and have a very potent one-day squad. This game between the two sides seems to be intriguing.

England vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI: Key Players


Heather Knight: The 32-year-old all-rounder has played in 127 ODIs, scoring 3743 runs at an average of 37.05 and taking 56 wickets in 59 innings. With scores of 23, 14, and 18, Heather Knight has had a subpar series so far against Sri Lanka. She will aim to make the most of the starts by putting together a huge inning.

Mahika Gaur: The 18 years old left-arm bowler has played for both England and the United Arab Emirates in T20 international cricket. She was selected to the team after a successful summer in England, where she participated in all domestic competitions. She made an impression most recently in the T20I series, putting forth results of 1/16 (2) and 0/22 (3).

Sri Lanka

Harshitha Samarawickrama: In 23 ODI appearances, the 25-year-old opening batter has amassed 480 runs at an average of 22.85, including her top score of 75. She has scored 30* and 26* in the current England series, and she should now try to continue the momentum into the ODIs.

Inoka Ranaweera: In 68 ODI appearances with the ball, the 37-year-old off-spinner has taken 73 wickets. She has also been a valuable contributor with the bat, scoring 201 runs in 46 innings. After an expensive first encounter, Inoka recorded frugal stats while taking 4 wickets in the 3-match T20I series against England. In this game, Inoka’s control over the ball will be essential in the matchup.
