My Fantasy Team (SL)
(Pre Toss)

Wk - Buttler, Perera
Bat - Roy, Malan, Gunathilaka 
AR - Hasaranga, S Curran, D De Silva
Bowl - Woakes/Wood/T Curran, Jordan, Chameera

Worthy GL Differential pick - Binura Fernando (if he plays) - Has excellent recent match records

GL Picks - Johnny Bairstow (Bats at 4/5 in T20Is), Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali (crucial if slotted to bat at No.3), Avishka Fernando (if plays), Kusal Mendis (Hit or Miss)

Predictions - 
England favorites to win, can go with majority 7-4 combination in GL favouring England. 
Roy to score if batting first, Buttler to score if batting second. 
Perera or Gunathilaka to do well for SL. 
Adil Rashid to do well if bowling second, Chris Jordan if bowling first.
Hasaranga to score down the order and also get atleast one wicket if bowling first.
