England v Sri Lanka 1st ODI – Team News

  • Jos Buttler – The wicketkeeper-batsman has been ruled out of this series with a calf injury. He is replaced by Dawid Malan in the squad.
  • Jonny Bairstow – The absence of Jos Buttler means Bairstow could be given glove duties for this series. Another option is middle-order batsman Sam Billings.
  • George Garton – The Sussex left-arm seamer has been handed a debut call-up for this series after Warwickshire pacer Olly Stone suffered a back injury.
  • Angelo Matthews – Matthews wasn’t selected for either the T20I or ODI squads for Sri Lanka’s tour of England.
  • Kusal Perera – It has been a difficult tour so far for Sri Lanka but the skipper has probably offered the most with the bat in hand. He will be key if they are to put up a better fight in this series.

England v Sri Lanka 1st ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions

Our experts have cricket betting tips for this match. These include the latest odds and are based on the form of the players.

England were ruthless in the preceding T20Is and it’s hard to see how Sri Lanka can trouble them here. Looking at other markets seems the way to go.

Root for Top Batsman

Joe Root may have lost his place in the England T20 reckoning but remains an integral part of this ODI side.

He was rested for the India series but can have a big impact on his return.

Root averages over 50 in this format and has 16 centuries to his name.

Backing him to be top England batsman looks a good bet at 3.74 with 1xBet.

Roy to Outscore Bairstow

While Jonny Bairstow has been in eye-catching T20I form, Roy can surpass him with a return to one-day cricket.

Roy did well in India in the previous ODI series and it would be no surprise to see him kick on with more time to play with.

Bairstow’s recent form in the shortest format means there is value in picking Roy to get more runs.

He can be backed to outscore his opening partner at 2.0 with bet365.

A Century to be Scored

The Riverside Stadium has seen some big scores in the past and is usually decent for batting.

With the firepower England have at the top of the order, a ton could be possible.

The return of Root and the fact Dawid Malan has been drafted into the squad recently also make this an appealing bet.

Back at century to be scored at 1.67 with bet365.
