Both sides have elected to bowl first upon winning the toss so far – a tactic that proved more successful for England than the hosts.

Kusal Perera has been ruled out of the ODI series with the thigh strain he suffered in the second ODI, with Kusal Mendis called up to take his place and going straight into the team for the rain-reduced third ODI. Saneera Samarawickrama also came into the team, opening in place of Upul Tharanga, while Amila Aponso was brought into the bowling attack in place of Lakshan Sandakan. Captain Dinesh Chandimal has struggled to score runs quickly in this tournament, and he could drop down the batting order as a result.

SL Key Players

Lasith Malinga passed 500 international wickets in the second ODI, on his way to 5-44 as he ripped through the England line-up. He also took five wickets in the Asia Cup – one less than team-mate Thisara Perera.

Both men went wicketless last time out, but Amila Aponso staked his claim for a regular place with 2-27 – dismissing both Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root early in the innings.

Sri Lanka’s batsmen have struggled recently, continuing that in this series, but Niroshan Dickwella’s 20-ball 36 – including eight fours – was a big positive at the top of the order before Adil Rashid and Tom Curran sparked a collapse with some excellent bowling.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka are heading for another bilateral ODI series defeat – they have not won one since winning both matches against Ireland in 2016. Since then, while they have twice won Tri-Nation Series (in Zimbabwe and Bangladesh), they have lost eight and drawn one of their bilateral series.

Their last defeat was against South Africa, who won the first three matches of their five-match series on the way to a 3-2 series win, before Sri Lanka were bowled out for 124 against Bangladesh and 158 against Afghanistan in two Asia Cup defeats. The Sri Lankans headed home early as a result.

Two defeats in the opening two ODIs here, after a no result in the first match, means Sri Lanka have now won just two of their last ODIs.

Tom Curran replaced Liam Dawson last time out and put in an excellent performance as he claimed 3-17 from four overs with the ball. Sam Curran and Mark Wood were the two to miss out in Liam Dawson’s absence – with Dawson out of the series. Joe Denly has been called up as a replacement but both he and Alex Hales remain the two batsmen sidelined as England’s good form continues.

The tourists have to decide whether to stick with their winning line-up now, or rotate their squad with one eye on getting players time in the middle ahead of next summer’s World Cup on home soil.

ENG Key Players

Eoin Morgan’s fine batting form continued, with the Irish-born England captain scoring 91* in the warm-up match and 14*, 92 and 58* in his three innings in the ODI series so far. He was also in good form in the series against India that preceded this one, finishing the final ODI on 88*.

Joe Root was also in top form in that series against India, leading England to victory with back-to-back unbeaten 100s. He also hit an unbeaten 90 in the warm-up game, was not outwhen the rain came in the first ODI and hit 71 from 83 balls in the second. He and Morgan have shared some big partnerships lately.

Jason Roy returned to form last time out, meanwhile, hitting 41 from 26 balls at the top of the innings. Roy averages 49.66 in his last nine matches, while opening partner Jonny Bairstow has hit 433 runs in his last ten games.

Adil Rashid continued his excellent form with the ball, meanwhile, with 4-36 in five overs and he now has 20 wickets in his last ten matches. Tom Curran marked his return to the team with 3-17 from four overs, meanwhile.

ENG Team Form

England need one more win to secure a ninth consecutive ODI series victories. The only team they have failed to beat lately was Scotland, in a one-off ODI in the summer, but England whitewashed Australia and beat India 2-1 to cap a successful summer in the format.

They have stormed to the top of the world rankings and smashed records along the way too – posting a new highest-ever ODI total during that series win against Australia when they scored 481/6 in a 242-run victory at Trent Bridge. Their all-round strength showed too, with Jos Buttler scoring an unbeaten century to pull of a thrilling one-wicket win in the final match of that series.

Against India, the tourists won the first game but England stormed back as Joe Root hit two unbeaten centuries in the next two matches to turn the series around. That form has continued in Sri Lanka, with two more wins in the two completed games so far.

SL vs ENG Head to Head

England have now won 35 of the 72 ODIs between themselves and Sri Lanka, with Sri Lanka winning 34. There was one tie, in their most recent series in England, while there have been two no results – the first game of this series, and the other on that aforementioned Sri Lankan tour of England.

England won the other three matches on home soil, however, with Jason Roy in particularly good form with the bat. Last time out in Sri Lanka, though, the hosts won 5-2. Kumar Sangakarra and Tillakaratne Dilshan were their heroes, but it has been their failure to replace those two legends that has contributed to Sri Lanka’s downturn in form.

England vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds

The odds on England winning have shrunk again following their form so far. England are 1.30 to win the fourth ODI with Bet365, whereas the hosts are 3.50.

Eoin Morgan’s fine form has led England to two victories so far, and yet the Irishman is as high as 5.50 to be their top run scorer for the third consecutive game. That is a reflection of England’s batting depth, however, with Joe Root (4.00), Jason Roy (4.50) and Jonny Bairstow (4.33) all priced lower.

Sri Lanka vs England Prediction

England have continued their fine one-day form in this series, even with the weather playing a heavy part in the series so far. With their batsmen in top form and their bowlers excelling, it is hard to look beyond the tourists.

Final Verdict: Back England to beat Sri Lanka at 1.30 with Bet365.
