England should be pretty confident going into this game, as they’ve outplayed Sri Lanka in “all departments” during the Tests and the One Day International series, according to the International Business Times. Even though the team has rested Alex Hales, 27, Joe Root, 25, and Moeen Ali, 29, they should be able to glide to another victory.
The losses have weighed heavily on the mind of Sri Lanka’s captain, Angleo Mathews. The 29-year-old cricket star apologized to all his fans for letting them down during the squad’s tour of England. “There will be some who hate us, some will still love us,” he tweeted on July 3. “It is tough times but [we] will come back hard.”
For those asking “What is T20 Cricket?” – Twenty20 cricket is a new style of one-day-cricket (as Test and first-class matches can take up to five days to compete.) There are twenty overs (a set of six balls bowled from one end of a cricket pitch) per side, per TopEnd Sports, with bowlers restricted to a max of four overs. Each team gets one inning, and the game is a fast-paced clash that is over in about three hours. There’s not a lot of time, so Sri Lanka better hit England fast and hard if they want to win.
Who do you think will emerge victorious in this game, HollywoodLifers? Will England send Sri Lanka packing with a loss or will the Lions end their tour with a win?
