Sri Lanka vs West Indies Preview:
The 1st of the 3-match T20I bilateral series between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be played on 4th March at Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua.
Hosts West Indies will take on Sri Lanka in the 1st of the 3-match T20I series on Thursday. West Indies will come into this match as favourites. They boast of a plethora of world-class T20 players in the likes of Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo. They are back in T20I action after a disappointing series loss against New Zealand and will be eager to perform better in this series.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be playing their first T20I series since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. The Lions have selected a somewhat inexperienced side for this series. Although, with the likes of Wanindu Hasaranga and Thisara Perera, they can give a tough fight to their opponents. We can expect a high-scoring game here in Antigua on Thursday.
Pitch report & Weather report:
The pitch here at the Coolidge Cricket Ground is a good wicket to bat on in the first half, but it might get tougher in the second half. Chasing over 160 plus scores is always difficult in this venue. The team batting first has won all of the T20I matches played here. Hence, whoever wins the toss should bat first on this wicket.
It will be mostly sunny during the match time here in Antigua. The temperature will hover around 26 degrees Celsius and the humidity levels are high at 70 percent. The chances of precipitation for this match are low.
It is advisable to pick both Nicholas Pooran and Andre Fletcher as a wicket-keeper in your Dream11 Fantasy teams as they both were in brilliant form in BBL and can score big in this upcoming match also.
West Indies are expected to win this match.
