Tomorrow’s morning session will be crucial for both the teams as England will look to post a huge total on the board whereas the host will look for early wickets. Join us tomorrow 15 minutes earlier than usual. Until then, Cheers.

Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test 2021 Match Prediction

6th March 2020 was the last time an international game was played in Sri Lanka. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse effect and with international cricket in almost all other countries getting back to its feet, Test cricket returns to Sri Lanka for the first time in more than 10 months. And it kickstarts from where it had stopped. 

England who were in Sri Lanka when the world started going into lockdown back in March last year are back in the island nation to complete their tour. Sri Lanka and England will play both games of this Test series at the Galle International Stadium.

It was only a little more than a week back that Sri Lanka were absolutely thrashed in South Africa where they lost 0-2. Injuries played a massive part as they had as many as four players going down during the first Test. However, they return to their home shores where they’ve played just two Test matches since the start of 2019. In fact, their record at home hasn’t been all that great either. Since the start of 2017, Sri Lanka have won just five out of the 13 games at home. Despite that, the Lankans might be on par with England due to their record at Galle and the spin resources that they possess.

Meanwhile, England who are without a couple of their star players will be looking to repeat the feat they scaled in 2018. They blanked Sri Lanka 3-0 in Sri Lanka. The batsmen got big runs while the spin trio of Moeen Ali, Jack Leach and Adil Rashid spun a web around the hosts. While Rashid hasn’t been around the Test team since early 2019 and Ali is diagnosed with COVID-19, Leach will have a Dom Bess partner. 

England have been on a roll in Test cricket as they have won three Test series’ in a row and will be in search of their fourth. 

Team news: Sri Lanka 

Sri Lanka were massively hampered by injuries in South Africa. Angelo Mathews and Suranga Lakmal were injured before the Test series while the likes of Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva and Kasun Ranjitha were injured during the first Test. However, the hosts will be hoping senior pros Mathews, Lakmal and Chandimal are back to full fitness. Moreover, they are set to play the spin trio of Wanindu Hasaranga, Dilruwan Perera and Lasith Embuldeniya. Lakmal may be the lone pacer.

England are without Rory Burns, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer

Cricket Betting

Team news: England

England will be without the services Rory Burns, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. While Burns is on paternity leave, Stokes and Archer have been rested. Dom Bess and Jack Leach will be the frontline spinners while one of James Anderson or Stuart Broad might sit out as England might prefer the pace of Mark Wood and the all-round ability of Sam Curran in the pace department. Meanwhile, Jonny Bairstow returns to the Test fold and will likely bat at No. 3. Dan Lawrence may well be in for a Test debut at No. 5. 

Predicted XI

Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis/Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dilruwan Perera, Lasith Embuldeniya, Suranga Lakmal

England: Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root (c), Dan Lawrence, Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Dom Bess, Mark Wood, Jack Leach, James Anderson/Stuart Broad

Key players

Wanindu Hasaranga: Wanindu Hasaranga made his Test debut in South Africa and was pretty impressive with both bat and ball. The leg-spinning all-rounder was one of the only five players to get more than 100 runs across two Test matches. He looked solid with the ball as well and the pitch at Galle will be more helpful than the pacy South African tracks. Hence, Hasaranga will be the one to watch out for in this series. 

Joe Root: Joe Root has had a pretty indifferent run in Test cricket over the last three years. Since the start of 2018, the England Test skipper averages 39.70. His last Test ton came in November 2019 and he had just one fifty in the home season in 2020. However, last time when England toured Sri Lanka, Root scored a match-winning 124 in the second innings of the second Test after England conceded the first innings lead. Thus, Root is one of the best players of spin in this current England line-up and he will be a key man at No. 4.
