Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 29: England vs Sri Lanka

England is just one win away from securing their semi-final ticket, having won three consecutive matches and leading Group 1 with six points. On Saturday, they defeated Australia by an 8-wicket margin thanks to outstanding bowling performances and the heroics of vice-captain Jos Buttler. They have a good chance of winning this match against Sri Lanka based on their current performance.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka has been thrown into a must-win situation in the fiercely contested Group 1. On Saturday, Pathum Nissanka’s 58-ball 72 and Wanindu Hasaranga’s hat-trick couldn’t save them from losing to South Africa. With two points, they are currently in fourth place in Group 1 standings.

 

Weather
The temperature will peak at 35 degrees earlier but should be down in the low 30s during the game.

 

Pitch
The wicket will favour spinners, and batsmen will have to be extra cautious on this surface. We haven’t seen many high-scoring matches here in recent years. Given the slowness of the wicket, anything above 140 makes the game interesting.

Let’s enjoy the most exciting T20 game with Baji now! England is a huge favourite in this match, but they’ve struggled in the past against low-spin bowling teams like Sri Lanka. Wanindu Hasaranga will be a significant threat, and England’s batsmen should treat him with caution. Overall, we expect a few hiccups along the way, but another England victory.
