ENG vs SL Dream11 Prediction : Sri Lanka do not really have a realistic chance of making it to the semis in Group 1. It will be a tough fight between Australia and England for a spot in the semis. England, however, look more likely to get through due to higher net run rate if they manage to beat Sri Lanka. The England players showed some strong resolve and commitment to get past the Kiwis by a margin of 20 runs. Sri Lanka, on the other hand got past the Afghans by 6 wickets. The road for Sri Lanka is more or less over but would hope to cause an upset and get England out of the world cup.

The par score is expected to be around 160-170 runs. The pitch might be a touch slower than usual as the tournament has progressed in its final stages.
