England Legends will take on Sri Lanka Legends in Match 5 of the Road Safety World Series 2022 at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur. This will be the first game for England Legends in the tournament this year and they will be led by Ian Bell.
Sri Lanka Legends, meanwhile, came up with a dominating performance against Australia Legends in the previous game and have started the tournament with a win this year. Tillakaratne Dilshan scored a fantastic century in the first game while Dilshan Munaweera's unbeaten 95 helped Sri Lanka post a massive total. A similar kind of performance will be expected in the upcoming game against England Legends.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match:
Tillakaratne Dilshan has started this year's campaign on a brilliant note and has notched up a century in his first game against the Australia Legends already. The right-hander hit 14 fours and four sixes in his stupendous knock and took his side to a huge total in the end. The skipper will be looking to continue his good form in the remainder of the tournament.
Probable best bowler of the match:
Nuwan Kulasekara had a decent outing for the Sri Lanka Legends in the previous game and he cleaned up the tail quickly to guide his side to victory. The medium pacer finished with 4 for 36 in his four overs but surprisingly, did not take any wickets with the new ball which is an area he thrives on usually.
