Sri Lanka ‘A’ Vs England ‘A’ first one-dayer today



By Revata S. Silva


The first of the five-match one-day cricket series between touring England ‘A’ (aka England Lions) and Sri Lanka ‘A’ will be played today at the Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium.


England ‘A’ are here following their 3-2 one-day series loss against Bangladesh ‘A’ in Bangladesh, earlier this month.


After losing to Bangladesh ‘A’, England Lions made four changes to their squad to prepare themselves for the ODI and T20 series they’ll feature with Pakistan in the Middle East soon.


Jade Dernbach, Craig Kieswetter, Samit Patel and Chirs Woakes, all former England ODI caps, joined England Lions after the Bangladesh series.
