Tillakaratne Dilshan and Nuwan Kulasekara are two excellent options to start this RSWS 2022 match. When Sri Lanka Legends play England Legends, the game is likely to have a lot of runs and be fun to watch based on what has happened in the past. The Sri Lanka Legends just won their first game of the competition, and the England Legends are about to play their first game.
The England Legends have been both hot and cold
RSWS 2022: The Sri Lanka Legends have only lost one of their last five games in the series. That loss came against the India Legends in the Finals of the last edition. In the Road Safety Series, the SL Legends have always been a very strong and dangerous team, and the first game against the Australia Legends showed that.
In the Road Safety Series, the England Legends have been both hot and cold. People might say that the team isn’t as strong as the other teams, but they still have the skills and strength to beat the other teams, which is their main goal going into this tournament. Sri Lanka Legends would want to keep being the best and build on what they’ve already done. England’s legends, on the other hand, would want to play better and hopefully make it to the finals.
England Legends Preview
RSWS 2022: The last time the Road Safety Series was held, England Legends came in fifth. They would like to do better than that. When the England Legends play Sri Lanka in the first game of the series, they will want to get off to a good start. However, Sri Lanka will be a tough opponent.
Ian Bell is the big name who will get all the attention and be in charge of batting for the English team. Nick Compton, Darren Maddy, and Phil Mustard will help him, but they will have to step up if England wants to win the Road Safety Series. They need to improve their batting, which seems to be their weakest area.
RSWS 2022: On the other hand, the bowling team has a lot of stars who are each match winners in their own right. The name that stands out the most is Jade Dernbach’s. He was called the T20 specialist, and he had the skills and variations to bowl the hard overs. Chris Tremlett is another very reliable bowler who will want to do well in the tournament. The English would want to get off to a good start by beating the in-form Sri Lankans and getting rid of the idea that they are the underdogs.

Sri Lanka Legends Preview
RSWS 2022: The Sri Lanka Legends would have been very upset if they hadn’t won the series last year. They were second in the points table and made it to another final. Sri Lanka is off to a great start in their tournament. They beat the Australian Legends by 38 runs and scored a huge total of 218 runs while only losing one wicket.
It looks like the batsmen could give the current International team a run for their money. The opening pair scored 208 runs together, which was so much that the Australians were pretty much out of the game before the second innings even started. Tillakaratne Dilshan, the captain, got 107 runs, which was made up of 14 fours and 4 sixes. His opening partner, Dilshan Munaweera, hit a very impressive 95 runs without getting out off 63 balls. He hit 10 fours and 2 sixes in his run.
Even though the batsmen did a great job, the bowlers also joined in the fun. They got rid of the Australians in 18 overs, which was another sign of how strong they were. In the second innings, Nuwan Kulasekara was the star. He took 4 wickets. Jeevan Mendis and Chaturanga de Silva helped him out a lot. Each of them took two wickets. The Sri Lanka Legends would want to keep their good form going in their next game against England.

Kanpur’s Green Park stadium was named after Madam Green, who horse-rode there in the 1940s. Due to the soil, Green Park is slow and low. Despite being batsman-friendly, the slow surfaces here favor spinners.
