West Indies v Sri Lanka Preview:
The 1st of the 3-match ODI bilateral series between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be played on 10th March at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua.
Hosts West Indies will take on Sri Lanka in the 1st of the 3-0match ODI series to be played on Wednesday. Sir Vivian Richards Stadium will host all the ODI fixtures of this series. West Indies are booming in confidence as they won the T20I series 2-1. They might have lost their previous ODI series 0-3 against Bangladesh, but most of the senior players weren’t part of the tour. Kieron Pollard will be leading the side and they are expected to take the lead in the first match of the series.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka hasn’t played an ODI match since the COVID-19 pandemic. The last time they played an ODI series was way back in March 2020, where they won the series 3-0 against a touring West Indian side. Sri Lanka have won their previous 5 matches played against West Indies and this will give them a major boost ahead of the ODI series. Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne is back in the side to lead the team in ODI and Test matches.
