ENG VS SL Dream11 Team: 2nd T20, Match Info, Full Stats and Playing11

Pitch Condition:

Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

Cardiff is the second lowest-scoring ground in the T20 Blast this season, with an average of 7.59 runs an over, and is one of the few English grounds where spinners are more expensive than seamers in T20. The last two games at this venue in the T20 Blast over the past week have witnessed low scores.

In most of the international games, this wicket behaves neutrally with pacers and batsmen generally dominating here. We should expect same type of wicket in this game also so most probably we will see scores in the range of 150-170 if England bats firs. However in the recent t20 blast games wicket was pacer friendly.

England can score big if they bat first despite the slow nature of wicket.

Last 4 Matches at this ground: 

SL: 129/7, ENG: 130/2 (Pace: 6 Spin: 3)

PAK: 173/6, ENG: 175/3 (Pace: 6 Spin: 1)

IND: 148/5, ENG: 149/5 (Pace:7 Spin: 2)

ENG: 181/8, SA: 162/7 (Pace: 13 Spin: 2)

Last 3 T20 Blast matches:

GLA: 150/9, MID: 129/9 (Pace: 14 Spin: 3)

Kent: 144/7, GLA: 104/10(Pace: 11 Spin: 6)

GLA: 156/3, ESS: 153/6(Pace: 5 Spin: 4)

Fantasy Tips:

Try to make your small league team by assuming easy win of English team. Try to cover all the main bowlers of the England team and they will be good captains in the GL.

England Team Preview:

The England team looked at its best in the T20 format. They are the no. 1 ranked team of this format and will be favourites to win this series easily despite the absence of their some key players. They have won their all the t20s on this ground. They have won the first T20 in a one sided manner.
