50-Overs World Cup holders England women will take on Sri Lanka women in their World T20 opener on November 10. Ahead of the 1st match, England side suffered a big blow with senior all-rounder Katherine Brunt injuring herself. With injury, it is uncertain for Brunt to be part of the team in their opening game. However, England would be hoping that her injury won’t rule her out for entire tournament. England are among top favorites of the tournament. They have a strong batting line who can provide them with a good start.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka women are also looking good to go. However, there’s one thing similar between these two teams that they both lost their warm-up game against India women. This is certainly a worry for the sides. England have failed to win the World T20 title since winning it back in 2009. Here is the probable dream XI prediction for England and Sri Lanka women:
FPJ’s dream XI prediction: Heather Knight, Katherine Brunt, Chamari Athapaththu, Kavisha Dilhari, Jenny Gunn, Danielle Hazell, Rebeka Vandort, Yashoda Mendis, Danielle Wyatt, Dilani Manodara and Yashoda Mendis
