Bet Now

West Indies are on a roll against the visiting Sri Lankan team on this tour. They won the opening ODI match comfortably by 8 wickets after winning the T20I series by 2-1 margin. West Indies will look to win this match and seal the series 2-0. And will look to test their bench strength in the third and final ODI. Sri Lanka on the other hand will need to bring their best performance to level the series and stay alive in the competition. We can expect a cracking contest between two quality sides with the series at stake.

West Indies Preview

West Indies openers Evin Lewis (65 runs) and Shai Hope (110 runs) set the platform with a 143-run opening stand to lay a strong foundation in the 236-run chase. Darren Bravo (37* runs) and Jason Mohammed (13* runs) completed the formalities to win the match by 8 wickets comfortably.  

Earlier their bowling did exceptionally well to restrict Sri Lanka to 236 runs. Jason Holder and Jason Mohammed claimed 2 wickets each while Pollard, Fabian Allen, and Alzarri Joseph chipped in with a wicket each in the match. Their fielders effected two crucial run-outs in the middle overs to add to the opposition`s woes.

Top players to bet on:

Shai Hope – Hope averages a staggering 87 in the opening position in the ODIS in the past 2 years and has scored 6 centuries. We expect him to continue his red hot form at the top of the order in this match and series too.

Jason Mohammed – Jason Mohammed`s all-round capabilities will further deepen the West Indies batting and bowling attacks.  He will be a player to watch out for in both the departments.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Shai Hope (wk), Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein

West Indies Actual Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Nicholas Pooran, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Mohammed, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Romario Shepherd

Sri Lanka Preview

Sri Lanka got off to a superb start with both openers scoring 50s and sharing a 105-run partnership at the top. Karunaratne`s dismissal triggered the unfortunate turn of events with Gunathilaka`s bizarre dismissal and run-outs of Mathews and Nissaka which reduced them from 105/0 to 146/4. Ashen Bandara`s fighting fifty took them to a score of 236 runs in 50 overs.

Their bowlers lacked the wicket-taking ability to cause trouble to the opposition in the chase. Chameera dismissed both the openers while no other bowler took a wicket in the match. The match ended in 47 overs with West Indies winning by 8 wickets. 

Top players to bet on:

Gunathilaka – Gunathilaka was looking good with 55 runs off 61 balls before his unfortunate dismissal. He also contributed with the ball with bowling figures of 5-0-25-0 in the match. We expect him to be a big performer with the bat and ball in this match.

Wanidu Hathurasanga – Hathuransanga had bowling figures of 10-1-26-0 and never allowed any easy runs to the opposition. He will look to pick up crucial wickets in this match to trouble the opposition in the middle overs.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Niroshan Dickwella/Thisara Perera, Ashen Bandara, Kamindu Mendis, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep

Weather Conditions

Antigua will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with no interruptions whatsoever. We will have full match with entertainment at its best in the cricketing field.

Venue Details

Sir Vivian Richards is one of the good pitches in West Indies with good balance between the bat and ball. The pitch might slow down as the match progresses and the ball might come onto the bat with the old ball especially. We can expect average scores in the range of 260-270 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option in the limited overs cricket off late as teams are comfortable chasing down any target in front of them with their aggressive approach and mindset.

West Indies batting looks to be good rhythm with openers amongst the runs and middle order that consists of classy players like Darren Bravo, Jason Mohammed, and Nicholas Pooran followed by big hitters Pollard, Allen and Holder. They also have good depth and variety in the bowling attack due to a number of all-rounders. Sri Lanka’s middle order looks inexperienced with 3 players with less than 5 match experience and Mathews is all set to miss the remaining tour owing to personal reasons. We expect West Indies to win this match and series 2-0.

West Indies will win the match & series 2-0
