For Sri Lanka Jayasuria returns as does Lasith Malinga. Thilan Kandamby makes his captaincy debut.

Two young captains and different sides to the ones that lined up in the tests.

Barbie making his captaincy debut.

Let's see if the old man Jayasuriya can hit a few of his trademark sixes.
The debutant Dernbach actually has only an average T20 record at domestic level. Lets see what the selectors see in him.

England have a team of Saffers. Kieswetter, Lumb, KP and now Jade Dernbach and also an Irish vice captain.

Sri Lanka have a team of old men and ex captains.

Should be a good game.
Isn't this a farewell match for Sanath ? Read somewhere on a UK(guardian/telegraph) site that he wouldn't play throughout the ODI series.
Barbie's first match as captain...hmmm. With the return of Slinga, I'll say 60-40 in SL's favor .
The pinch-hitting pensioner?!! :)))

Bumble you legend.
Bopara has been stressed out since Morgan took the test spot. A return to the England side might get him going again but Bell is a far superior batsmen in any form of the game.
Kulsakera takes the new ball. A wild swing and miss from the batter :))
Good toss to win for SL, ball zipping around.
Lol @ the awkwardness when Lloyd points out that none of the top 4 are English.
88.6 MPH loosner. English speed guys are usually on the high side. He will 94+ today
Already in death bowling mode. Play and miss.
Misses the Yorker length, gets away with it. Just three off!
