Sri Lanka have no cause to change their combination. Kusal Perera suffered a painful blow to the thumb against Netherlands, but that is not expected to affect his availability.
Sri Lanka (probable) 1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Kusal Perera, 3 Mahela Jayawardene, 4 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 5 Dinesh Chandimal (capt), 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Thisara Perera, 8 Nuwan Kulasekara, 9 Sachithra Senanayake, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Ajantha Mendis
Ian Bell was absent from training on Wednesday due to an upset stomach, but he was unlikely to play in any case. England may consider bolstering their batting with Chris Woakes, or their spin bowling with Stephen Parry, at Jade Dernbach’s expense.
England (probable) 1 Alex Hales, 2 Michael Lumb, 3 Moeen Ali, 4 Eoin Morgan, 5 Jos Buttler, 6 Ravi Bopara, 7 Chris Jordan, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 James Tredwell, 11 Jade Dernbach/ Chris Woakes/ Stephen Parry
Look Out For:
Ajantha Mendis has lately been as much of a mystery for the selectors as he has been to opposition batsmen. His T20 record is excellent, and as the match against Netherlands proved, batsmen who have never faced him find him exceedingly difficult to decipher. But he is also prone to dramatic failure when there is little turn to be had, and against batsmen who have worked him out. Against South Africa, he travelled for 11 runs an over. Laudable returns against England will help shore up his place in the team, but with Rangana Herath in the dugout, an expensive outing may also seal his omission for the following matches.
As bright a prospect as his batting is attractive, Moeen Ali has not yet brought his best to international cricket, but the 36 against New Zealand revealed glimpses of his ability. Equally comfortable flicking languidly to leg as he is sending the ball to the straight fence, Moeen had recently excelled in spin-friendly conditions, on an England Lions tour to Sri Lanka. That experience may aid him against Sri Lanka’s slow-bowling phalanx, but he will also do well to set the innings off apace against the seamers.
