Eng vs SL Highlights Today, Monday 1-11-2021. 29th Match (N), Group 1, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup England vs Sri Lanka, from Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
England have lost the toss and will bat first.
Shanaka says: Dasun Shanaka confirms that SL are sticking with the same XI, and they know Sharjah pretty well, having played here three times. “We’ve got an advantage because our batsmen and bowlers know the conditions.”
Eoin Morgan would have bowled, too (natch), but is happy enough with the challenge of setting things up with the bat. “If you’re looking to have success in this tournament you’re going to have to do both and do both extremely well.”
England team: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Jos Buttler (wk), 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Jonny Bairstow, 5 Eoin Morgan (capt), 6 Liam Livingstone, 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Chris Jordan, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Tymal Mills.
