In the 2nd ODI, England came out to bat first and gave a target of 279 runs to the hosts in which, English skipper Eoin Morgan played a brilliant knock of 92 runs along with Joe Root's 71 which helped them win the game by 31 runs.

Fantasy Cricket Tips:

Wicket-Keeper: Jos Buttler.

Jos Buttler is the safest and a very good wicketkeeper-batsman to have in the team. In the 2nd ODI, he scored 28 runs from 25 balls including 2 boundaries, and in the same match, he also took more than 3 catches.

Batsmen: Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Kusal Perera, Jason Roy, and Jonny Bairstow.

Any combination from the above set of batsmen would be good enough. They all have the ability to play big knocks. England skipper Eion Morgan has scored around 106 runs and following him, Joe Root has scored 96 runs so far in the series. Kusal Perera, Jason Roy, and Jonny Bairstow are very good batsmen for their respective sides, so they can also be included in the playing 11.

All-Rounders: Ben Stokes and Thisara Perera.

Ben Stokes and Thisara Perera are the most consistent all-rounders and they can also change the course of a game at any point-of-time. In the 2nd ODI, Thisara scored 44 runs from 49 balls which makes him the top run-scorer for his side and along with that he also picked up a wicket. They both are must-have picks for their respective sides.

Bowlers: Olly Stone, Chris Woakes, Lasith Malinga, Akila Dananjaya and Adil Rashid.

Lasith Malinga picked up a 5-wicket haul in the previous game and Chris Woakes also picked 3 wickets in the same game. Therefore, they are must-have picks for their sides. And Olly Stone, Akila Dananjaya and Adil Rashid are regular wicket-takers for their respective sides.
