Pitch and conditions:
The Edgbaston surface tends to be slightly slow and given to modest turn, which will suit Sri Lanka. The forecast is for cloud and rain, however, which may mean the England seamers will enjoy bowling with the new ball for as long as precipitation holds off.
Since 2000, Sri Lanka have won one bilateral ODI series in England and lost one.
The wicket of Kumar Sangakkara at Lord's gave James Tredwell his 50th ODI scalp, in his 35th game. He is the fastest ever England spinner to the milestone, with five seam bowlers ahead of him.
Mahela Jayawardene has only crossed 50 once in 18 ODI innings.
England team: AN Cook, IR Bell, JM Anderson, RS Bopara, TT Bresnan, EJG Morgan, JC Buttler, JC Tredwell, MA Carberry, Chris Woakes, Harry Gurney, Gary Ballance, Joe Root, Chris Jordan
