The third T20I between England and Sri Lanka is set to take place at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Saturday.

England have been the better team throughout the series, with their bowlers stepping up to the fore. They have already sealed a series win and will be eyeing a clean sweep at the expense of the tourists. However, the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan will need to fare better with the bat as fringe players Liam Livingstone and Sam Billings continue to impress. With a good blend of youth and experience in the side, England will fancy their chances of a series whitewash ahead of the third and final game.

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, have impressed in patches despite the results suggesting otherwise. While their batting unit hasn't really been up to the mark, their bowlers have done well on both occasions. A complete performance is in order for Kusal Perera and co. as they seek to avoid a series whitewash. All eyes will be on Wanindu Hasaranga, who has been the Lankans' best bet with the ball.

Although England will start the game as the favorites, Sri Lanka have the tools to spring a surprise or two. With both sides eyeing a win, albeit for different reasons, we should be in for a cracker at the Rose Bowl on Saturday.

Pitch Report

Although the pitch at the Rose Bowl is expected to favor the batsmen, the bowlers should also get some help off the surface. While the pacers will get swing and seam movements, the spinners will also come into play in the middle overs. Wickets in hand will be key, with either side looking to chase upon winning the toss. 150-160 should be a good total, with the pitch not likely to change much during the course of the game.
