England would be taking on Sri Lanka in the T20I series, the first of which gets underway on June 23, Wednesday. The match is scheduled to be contested at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff and would start at 11:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time). England, who have been a dominant outfit in the shortest format, would head into this series as absolute favourites, with playing in home conditions adding to their advantage.

Eoin Morgan's side would have the opportunity to try out some new faces in the squad as part of preparing a strong unit for the T20 World Cup.
