ENG vs SL: Sri Lanka’s (SL) Predicted Playing XI Against England (ENG) – ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 29
Openers: Prathum Nissanka and Kusal Perera
Prathum Nissanka waged a lone battle in the last game against South Africa. Despite the fact that wickets kept falling at regular intervals, Nissanka kept going at the other end. He went on to score 72 runs off 58 deliveries, including 6 fours and 3 sixes.
He will be partnering with Kusal Perera. The latter has shown flashes of brilliance but hasn’t been able to convert the starts into big scores. For Sri Lanka to win the game, he needs to step and set the foundation with a solid knock at the top.
