|Dhananjaya de Silva||4||12||1||0||33.33|
Sri Lanka has lost every single game on its tour to England by a massive margin. It is a match of unequals and one that shows just how much Sri Lanka has fallen in recent times. Up next is the 3rd ODI against England, also the last match of this tour. Sri Lanka may have lost the series but there are still some very important ODI Super League points on offer.
England is going to be aware of that too and not want to let up at all. It may make some changes and look to test some of its bench but the depth in its squad is so deep that there is no question of any drop in quality.
Finding value for bettors in this series has had to require looking a bit outside of traditional bets since the odds on picking the winner are quite poor. We have had good results so far and will attempt to find the best bets for punters in this match also.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for England vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI 2021. The match is going to be played at the County Ground, Bristol on the 4th of June 2021.
England has been very professional throughout this series and not put a foot wrong. Even in the last match, Sam Curran started with three early wickets to eventually end with five while David Willey ended up with four to his name.
The English seamers utilized the new ball to great effect and then bounced out the Sri Lankans towards the end of the inning.
Mark Wood and Adil Rashid have also been very effective in most matches of this series but Tom Curran seems to be going through a prolonged lean patch. He is averaging over 80 per wicket (a very bad thing) since the start of 2020 and he could be playing for his place in the squad.
Tom Banton was added to the England squad and he may get a run at the top of the order if England opts to rest one of Bairstow or Roy. Both of them could be rested and Liam Livingstone could also get another run at the top of the order.
Whatever be the batting combination, England is far stronger than Sri Lanka in this aspect.
Look for betting markets with Total Sixes for the match, Total Fours, or even for individual batsmen as this is where you will be able to find good value.

Dhananjay de Silva showed some fight for Sri Lanka in the previous match and helped them recover to 241 after being 21-4 inside seven overs. De Silva and Shanaka were the two batsmen that fought well and raised some hopes of a competitive fight from Sri Lanka.
Unfortunately for Sri Lanka, most of the top order continues to falter. Kusal Perera, Pathum Nissanka, and Avishka Fernando are not bad batsmen at all and certainly have the talent in them to be able to score freely but they are short on confidence right now.
The short ball also is going to follow them around after their poor display in the previous match.
Sri Lanka’s batting has potential but it is going to struggle to match a finished product like the England batting lineup.
There is a little bit more to cheer for in the bowling department. Dushmantha Chameera has emerged as the leader of the bowling lineup in the past few months while Binura Fernando has shown promise with the new ball also.
We are not too sure about Wanindu Hasaranga as the lead spinner. He brings a lot to the table with the bat but his bowling is not as good as had initially seemed. The Sri Lanka bowlers struggle once the initial movement with the new ball dies down.
They don’t have any bowler with express pace and their spinners struggle without help from the surface as well.
Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Perera, Avishka Fernando, Oshada Fernando, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanidu Hasaranga, Dasun Shanaka, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando, PVD Chameera, Asitha Fernando.
The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first although we are not too sure it is as big an advantage on the flat English surfaces as it is made out to be.

There is a lot of rain predicted over the weekend in Bristol. The forecast does get a bit better on match-day but we could be in for a lot of interruptions and some stop-start passages of play. The pitch at Bristol is generally good for batting but also has a little something in it for the spinners. The outfield could be a bit slower than normal considering the rain that would have fallen down.
A score of around 300 is still on the cards batting first, particularly if England bats first.
We are going to back England to win in this match even though the odds on offer are not very attractive at all. Sri Lanka has shown absolutely no reason why we should believe it can pull off an upset apart from luck. You can hold some money for in-play betting in case the odds improve to try and get some better value for your bets.
Bet on England to win.
Bristol is not a very big venue and we could see a lot of sixes being hit here. The total number of sixes that the market is quoting is easily achievable but the risk here is rain playing spoilsport. Worth a punt in our opinion.
We see this as a hedge to other bets. There is a very high likelihood that this will come through as it has in every other match of the series. The odds are not great but they are not bad either.
