Match Preview

After a difficult time in South Africa, the lions from Sri Lanka will now be back in their own den, where they will take on the famous Three Lions. Sri Lanka lost both of their Tests against South Africa. They are currently placed at the 7th position in the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship rankings.

England will be donning the whites after August of last year, where they played three Tests against Pakistan. They won one of those matches, while the remaining two were drawn. While Test championship standings will suggest an England win, they have got a big list of significant absentees. Hence, this game can be a lot more exciting than what the tables and form-books might suggest.

Weather Report & Pitch Condition

This is where the excitement goes for a toss. While the first day of the test is all set to be sunny, there are 70-90% chances of precipitation for the next 4 days. Hence, it is unlikely that we will get to see full 5 days of riveting cricket.

The pitch here at the Galle International Stadium will support the batsmen, especially in the first couple of days. As for bowling, spinners will enjoy more purchase than batsmen.

Average first innings score:
