Sri Lanka will be pleased to play a Test match on their soil after a very long tenure. However, the Sri Lankans will enter the clash against England after a poor series in South Africa. Nevertheless, the Sri Lankans have a huge chance to regain their momentum with a win over the English team. Angelo Mathews and Suranga Lakmai will return to the Sri Lankan squad, which is positive news for the hosts. Dasun Shanaka and Wanindu Hasaranga propelled well against the PROTEAS and the Sri Lankans will be hoping to ride on their good form.
As for England, they are traveled without the likes of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer for their tour of Sri Lanka. However, they will take positives from their last trip to Sri Lanka, in which they bagged the Test series.
