When the toss happens at Sofia Gardens in Cardiff tonight, cricket will have its new champions, or joint champions, in the traditional format of the game with the India vs New Zealand clash spilling into the reserve day. But hosts England will be busy with their own preparations for the upcoming T20 World Cup as they take on visiting Sri Lanka.

Scorecard | Commentary | Cricket News

Eoin Morgan & Co start as overwhelming favourites. They are the top-ranked side, and have a very strong side even in the absence of star players like Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. For the visitors, enduring a difficult transition, it will be another trial fire. A young squad led by Kusal Perera can only learn.

Head-to-head: Both the teams have played 131 T20s each, and very little to differentiate. England have won 68, lost 58 times and were involved in five no results. Sri Lanka have won 61, lost 68. There were two no results.

But they have met on nine times, with England leading 5-4. England won the last three meetings.
