Sri Lanka’s patched-up batsmen were a qualified success at Bristol – they managed to put runs on the board, even if their mobility limited their reliability between the wickets, and both Mathews and Chandimal have been passed fit. Dasun Shanaka replaced Suraj Randiv for their last outing and, despite being the most culpable of Sri Lanka’s mis-callers, he is set for another outing.
Farveez Maharoof continues to be available despite a damaged finger. Moeen Ali was rested in Bristol to make way for Jordan’s return, an understandable rejig given his slight drop-off in form, allied to the fact that Rashid has added impressive control to his ever-improving command of variation.
The resulting five-man attack offers pleasing variety to cover for the ongoing absence of Ben Stokes and deserves another outing, although the unsettled weather may influence the final selection. There’s little point in fiddling with the batting, seeing as the middle order has had a solitary airing all series.
Pitch and weather report
There’s rain on the radar for Wednesday afternoon, which doesn’t bode well given how torrential it has been lately when the heavens have opened. Despite being a floodlit game, the play has to get underway at 1 pm due to local restrictions on late-night revelry, which means – seeing as we are only a week past the longest day of the year – the match is likely to finish in manageable twilight anyway. The pitch itself has got a bit more grass on than expected, according to Eoin Morgan.
Sri Lanka 305/5 42 overs
England 309/4 40.1 overs target 308
England won by 6 wickets (with 11 balls remaining) (D/L method)
