***Our Winner is England***

Toss Prediction

Five of the last eight one-day internationals played at the R. Premadasa Stadium have been won by the side bowling first. Also, rain has been forecast for the match day which means batting second would be an advantage. So toss is going to be crucial here and whichever team wins it is more likely to field first.

SL Team News

Sri Lanka, in order to manage Lasith Malinga’s workload and keep him fresh for Saturday’s T20 international, may decide to rest him for this fifth ODI. The rest of the line-up is expected to remain unchanged.

SL Key Players

Sri Lanka will have their hopes pinned on the likes of Niroshan Dickwella, Dinesh Chandimal and Kusal Mendis when it comes to batting. Dickwella has scored the most runs for the team in this series and he is coming off a fifty in the last game at Pallekele. Chandimal has scored in 30s in his previous two innings and the hosts will want a big knock from him. With the ball, the onus will be on spinners Akila Dananjaya and Amila Aponso to take wickets and keep England’s scoring rate in check. Lasith Malinga has been Sri Lanka’s best bowler in the series but he could be rested for this game. In his absence, it will be up to Akila Dananjaya to contain the English batsmen. The off-spinner has taken five wickets in the four games and he is more likely to finish with the best bowling figures.

SL Recent Form

Sri Lanka have now lost ten out of the fifteen completed one-day internationals they have played this year. They came into this series after facing an early exit in the Asia Cup held in the UAE and are finding it tough to put an end to their losing streak. Their 18-run defeat in the last game at Pallekele means that they have lost their last five ODIs in a row.

ENG Team News

Jonny Bairstow will not be a part of England’s starting eleven for this match as he is still recovering from an ankle injury. This means Jason Roy will continue to open the batting alongside Alex Hales. With the series already in the bag, skipper Eoin Morgan could make a few changes to his side for this final ODI – Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes and Ollie Stone could be rested and replaced with Joe Denly, Liam Plunkett and Sam Curran respectively.

ENG Key Players

Eoin Morgan has looked in great touch on this tour. The England skipper is topping the runs charts with 195 runs including a couple of half-centuries and one can expect another significant contribution from him. Joe Root has scored at an average of 68 while Jason Roy is having a strike-rate of over 100. Jos Buttler has not had much opportunity with the bat so far and he is going to be England’s key man in the middle order. Adil Rashid has been the most successful bowler in the series with five wickets and the leg-spinner is going to be the main threat in this bowling attack. Apart from him, Tom Curran and Moeen Ali have also done a good job with the ball. The latter took a couple of wickets last time and he is likely to trouble the Sri Lankan batsmen on this surface.

ENG Recent Form

England’s victory in the fourth ODI means that they have now won nine consecutive bilateral one-day international series. They have won ten of their last eleven ODIs which shows how dominant they have been in this format of the game. The last time they lost a 50-over game was against India. The match was played at Nottingham in July and England ended up losing by eight wickets.

  • Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes/Joe Denly, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes/Liam Plunkett, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid

England vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds

England’s betting odds have shortened up even further after their comfortable win in the previous match. The tourists once again begin as the bookmakers’ favorites to win at odds of 1.30 on Betway, 1.28 on Bet365 and 1.33 on Betfair. Sri Lanka, as usual, find themselves as the underdogs at a much higher price of 3.50 on Betway, 3.75 on Bet365 and 3.90 on Betfair.

Sri Lanka vs England Prediction

Sri Lanka are coming into this fifth and final ODI trailing 0-3 in the series. With the series already decided, the hosts will now look to finish on a high and save some dignity. But for that to happen, they will have to put up a much better performance, especially with the bat. England are high on confidence and they are playing just like the number one ODI team should. Their top-order batting is looking solid and their bowlers have utilized the conditions better than the Sri Lankan bowlers. The visitors have dominated the hosts in this series and we expect them to do a clean sweep.

Final Verdict: Back England to beat Sri Lanka in the fifth ODI at 1.30 on Betway, 1.28 on Bet365 and 1.33 on Betfair.
