With just four points from five games, Sri Lanka will aim for an improbable victory and survive in the ongoing World Cup when they take on hot favourites England at Headingley today. The 1996 champions have managed to win just one game so far, against Afghanistan in what was a tense battle for them.

England vs Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka aim for survival against sublime England

England, led by Eoin Morgan, have been in sublime form, especially with the bat as they posted 300 plus scores in four of the five games -- two of them being 386/6 against Bangladesh and 397/6 against Afghanistan.

Four English batsmen -- Joe Root (367), Eoin Morgan (249), Jonny Bairstow (218) and Jason Roy (215) -- are among the 10 highest-scoring batsmen in the ongoing tournament so far.

In their last match against Afghanistan, even though England were without their opener Roy, they still managed to post a humongous total of 397/6, courtesy Morgan, who brought the crowd to his feet during his 71-ball knock of 148, which included a record 17 sixes.

Thus, it would require Lasith Malinga and Nuwan Pradeep to deliver an out of the box performance to stop the England batters from going berserk in Leeds.

Another thing which Sri Lanka need to be wary of is the middle-order collapse that they have suffered on quite a few occasions in the ongoing tournament. They will have to make sure that they get a good start and build on that, instead of throwing it away and handing over the advantage to their opposition.

England vs Sri Lanka: Dream 11 top picks

England, the home team, is in great form right now and they surely do have a great set of players in their ranks. From their impeccable batting side, it would be wise to pick Joe Root and either Ben Stokes or Jos Buttler. The three of them are explosive batsmen and skilled players. Their bowling lineup is also star studded, making Mark Wood a great pick for today's match.

From the Sri Lankan side, they have a great set of players but they have not performed well. You've got to pick Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Perera and Lasith Malinga. The players have a great synergy with one another and will look to win this game as they have not been performing consistently at all.
