The 1st match of the ODI series between Sri Lanka and England will be played on Tuesday, 29th of June at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street. Sri Lanka have not able to maintain their brand of cricket in recent years, as they have slipped down to 9th in the ODI Rankings.
They need to be more skillful and more emphasis should be to be given to their batting. Sri Lanka had a disastrous T20I series where they were swept 0-3 by England. Whatever could have gone wrong with the Sri Lankan side, probably went wrong.
They would like to start this ODI series afresh and will hope for some competitive display of skills in all three departments. Another shocker for the Lankan side came on Monday when their three experienced players were suspended for breaching the Covid-19 protocols.
TEAM NEWS Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, and Niroshan Dickwella have been suspended due to the Covid-19 protocol breach. These three are recalled to Sri Lanka and they won’t be taking part in this ODI series.

Pitch Report:It’s a high-scoring venue. Out of the last 5 matches played here, the teams batting first have posted 300-plus scores in 3 of those. Going with the team combination of both sides, whoever wins the toss should bat first.
