In an all-important clash, England will lock horns with Sri Lanka in Match 39 of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Sydney. With two wins in four games, England need to secure a victory in this game to seal its place in the semi-finals. In their last outing, the Three Lions posted 179 and won by 20 runs against New Zealand. The likes of Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone are the key players for them.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka also have four points and have equal chances of sealing the semis spot. The Lankan Lions restricted Afghanistan to 144 and easily chased down the score, with nine balls to spare. They will rely on the contributions of their top players like Kusal Mendis and Wanindu Hasaranga. It will be interesting to see which team qualifies for the knockouts.

Pitch Report

The Sydney pitch has been a belter and is expected to provide strong support to the batters. With a par score of 160, it will be a herculean task for the bowlers to contain the totals. All matches in this tournament have been won by the team batting first.

Player Picks


Jos Buttler ENG | WK

The England skipper has been sensational in the T20 format with his ball-striking abilities. In the last game, Buttler slammed 73 off 47 balls and helped England to secure a much-needed victory.


Dhananjaya de Silva SL | ALL

Often under-rated, Dhananjaya de Silva has been a class player for Sri Lanka. With strong composure, he garnered 66 runs off 42 in his latest outing and can be helpful with the ball as well.


Wanindu Hasaranga SL | ALL

The player with a magical hand, Wanindu Hasaranga is one of the most important players for the Lions. In seven matches, he has scalped 13 wickets at an efficient economy of 6.51.

Avoid Having These Players In Your Fantasy Sports Team


Pramod Madushan


The young pacer is quite talented but is lacking wicket-taking abilities. In three games, Madushan has as many wickets at an economy of 7.50 and should be avoided.


Adil Rashid


Rashid has returned wicket-less in three appearances of the tournament. In 12 overs, he has conceded 89 runs, and clearly should not be in your scheme of things.
