West Indies v Sri Lanka Preview:
The 2nd of the 3-match ODI bilateral series between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be played on 12th March at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua.
Guided by a spectacular century from Shai Hope, West Indies crushed Sri Lanka by eight wickets in the first ODI to open their account in the ICC ODI Super League points table. While it can be argued that the series is of meager significance in a year that will be largely dominated by Test cricket and T20Is, West Indies must be content to have arrested a six-match losing streak in the 50-overs format.
In their defense, it was a severely depleted unit that took a beating 0-3 against Bangladesh recently, however, West Indies have not been at the top of their 50-overs game even otherwise. In 39 ODIs since the start of 2019, they have won only 14, whereas they lost 21. Of these 14 wins, as many as nine have come against Ireland and Afghanistan combined. Therefore, even if their eight-wicket victory over the visitors in the previous fixture does not call for any massive celebration, it is certainly a reason good enough to bring mild smiles on a dwindling unit’s faces.
Pitch report & Weather report:
There was a fair bit of assistance for the pacers and neither teams’ spinners were rewarded on the track that had seemingly limited purchase for the slower bowlers. West Indies’ victory in the previous fixture was the eighth occasion of a chasing side winning at North Sound in 18 matches. The temperature is expected to hover around 27 degrees with close to 70 percent humidity.
Prediction & Expert Advice:
Shai Hope has a scored good amount of runs in the last series against Sri Lanka and he can be a good candidate to lead any one of your Dream11 Fantasy teams.
West Indies are expected to win this match.
