SL vs WI Match Prediction & Analysis

West Indies came very close to winning the opening ODI against Sri Lanka but a brilliant effort from Wanindu Hasaranga just managed to get the home team over the line. The way that the first match was played has made it clear that the two teams are pretty well-matched. The West Indies is seeing a rise in its performances as the senior players have returned to the fold.

Sri Lanka is also in a rebuilding phase and that makes the series very intriguing to watch. There are just three ODI’s being played, as is the norm these days, and that makes the second ODI a must-win for the West Indies.

Sri Lanka vs West Indies 2nd ODI 2020 is going to be played at the Mahindra Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 26th of February 2020.

Team Previews

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka was lucky to come out on the winning side of the 1st ODI. It gave up too many runs and then its batsmen did not capitalize on the starts that they got. A last over finish with just one wicket in hand was great news for the fans but the home side would have preferred a much more straightforward affair.

There are a number of things that the Sri Lankans did right also, all of which they would hope to build on in the match to come.

One big positive for the Sri Lankan team was the manner in which its top-order batted. Avishka Fernando and Dimuth Karunaratne combined for 117 before being separated and the Kusal Perera also looked in very good touch.

Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhanajaya de Silva, and Thisara Perera form a very long batting lineup. We have now seen evidence that Wanindu Hasaranga and Isuru Udana can also be reliably be called upon to score a few runs in a crunch.

The Sri Lankan batting unit is looking formidable and dependable after a long time.

Sri Lanka’s problem has been its bowling. Nuwan Pradeep, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, and Angelo Mathews do not make for a scary fat-bowling unit. None of the bowlers have any real pace or are genuine wicket-taking threats.

The spinners are more attacking in nature and we could see Lashkan Sandakan, Wanindu Hasaranga, and Dhananjaya de Silva play a larger role in the matches to come. There is no doubt that there are plenty of bowling options for Sri Lanka to call upon.

Sri Lanka Playing 11

Dimuth Karunaratne, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Wanidu Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep.


West Indies

We were a little surprised at the team selection for the West Indies in the previous match. They went back to Sunil Ambris at the top of the order and benched the promising Brandon King. We also would have liked to see Fabian Allen in the team in place of Jason Holder but that could be a decision based on the conditions.

The West Indies managed to score 290 with only Shai Hope playing a significant inning. He is easily the best player for the West Indies in the ODI format and underlined his importance with 115 to set the base for his side.

Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, and some cameos at the end of the inning helped the West Indies get to a formidable total. A bigger contribution from players like Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard could have put the match out of Sri Lanka’s reach.

We like the batting strength that the West Indies has at the moment. A couple of the senior batsmen need to take some more responsibility and they could easily overpower the Sri Lankan bowling.

West Indies was let down by its bowling in the previous match. Sheldon Cottrell had an unusual off-day while the spinners were unable to stop the scoring rate as well. Keemo Paul and Alzarri Joseph were the best bowlers for the West Indies on the night.

The ODI squad that the West Indies has brought to Sri Lanka is very deep and we hope that they do not hesitate to make changes to their team if needed.

SW Ambris, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, F Allen, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell.

Pitch and Conditions

An excellent day for cricket has been forecast in Hambantota. There is a very low percentage of rain and the weather should be quite comfortable to play in as well. The humidity is high which could mean dew in the second inning and a distinct advantage to the fielding side.

The pitch at Hambantota is generally very good for batting and we expect nothing different this time around. The ball comes on nicely to the bat and the outfield is pretty inviting as well. A score of around 300 should be the minimum that teams look for batting first.

SL vs WI Betting Tips

Both the teams have a strong batting lineup and a bowling attack that has weaknesses. The conditions also seem likely to be in favor of the batting side so another high-scoring match could be in store. We think it may be worth picking the West Indies in this match considering it managed to get 290 without its power-hitters contributing in the previous match.

Bet on the West Indies to win.
