England vs Sri Lanka Prediction
With just four points from five matches, Sri Lanka find themselves in a position of trouble. They now have to win all four of their remaining matches in order to have any chance of making it through to the semi-finals. So they will be playing under a lot of pressure which could have an adverse effect on their performance. England, on the other hand, are flying high on confidence and have plenty of momentum on their side with wins in their last three matches. The hosts have won their last six ODIs at this venue and we expect them to make it seven in a row come Friday.
