WI vs SL Match Prediction & Analysis

Video Preview

Even though Sri Lanka had not played an ODI game for a year before the first match of their series against the West Indies, the proceedings of the match felt ever so familiar. Sri Lanka found themselves in pretty dominant positions at various junctures of the game but allowed the match to slip through. That has more or less the story of their outings ever since their stalwarts have retired.

With series on the line, Sri Lanka are in a do-or-die situation, which they'll be pretty familiar with as well. They bounced back with a terrific win in the T20I series when they were in a similar position. West Indies, on the other hand, will be brimming with confidence and will want to seal the series then and there. The upcoming match of the tournament is to be played at North Sound, on 12th March 2021.

Team Previews

West Indies

Given how clinical the hosts were in the first match, we don't see a reason for them making changes to their playing eleven, unless, of course, some injury results in a forced change. In the first match, none of their batsmen appeared to be struggling, which each of them hammering a fifty. The same was the case with their bowling too as they pulled Sri Lanka back after the visitors got off to a terrific start.

West Indies' ODI unit is a lot different as compared to what they had in the T20Is. However, it didn't really make any difference to the result. Shai Hope at the top provided stability to their team while the other batsmen can play around him. Apart from him, Ewin Lewis played against his regular style and that was refreshing to see. On paper, West Indies have a pretty well-balanced unit with a stable top-order and an explosive middle-order. The presence of Jason Holder, Kieron Pollard, and Fabian Allen provides depth to their batting.

On paper, West Indies' bowling certainly looks to be their weaker link, but with the kind of batting they have, it shouldn't really worry them. Given that they are playing at home, they seem to be well-acquainted with the conditions, and beating them is going to take a lot of work yet again.

West Indies Playing 11

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka will be utterly disappointed with the loss they posted in the first match of the series. They appeared to be the better team for the first half of their innings, but a couple of wickets suddenly triggered a collapse, from which they could never recover. While Sri Lanka have loads of experience available in their middle-order, it was their top order that did well.

After getting their team off to a fine start, Dimuth Karunaratne was dismissed and then Danushka Gunathilaka followed him back as he was dismissed in a bizarre fashion. Just like the Windies, Sri Lanka have a decent contingent of all-rounders available at their disposal and that adds depth to their unit.

With surface likely to take a turn, Wanindu Hasaranga is going to be their trump card in the upcoming match. West Indies managed to neutralize him in the first match, largely because they didn't have to take any risk in getting to the total. A better total on the board should put Sri Lanka in a decent position if they bat first. All in all, the onus of getting Sri Lanka a win in this upcoming match will lie with their batsmen. Batting is arguably the stronger point and the batsmen would like to target West Indies' inexperience with the ball. If they can do that, Sri Lanka will be well in business.

Sri Lanka Playing 11

Danushka Gunathilaka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Pathum Nissanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Oshada Fernando, Ashen Bandara, Wanidu Hasaranga, PVD Chameera, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep, Thisara Perera.

WI vs SL Betting Tips

The two sides are pretty evenly matched and are likely to produce a pretty close contest. Even though West Indies looked dominant in the first match, Sri Lanka are capable of causing massive trouble for any team on their day. On paper and performance-wise, West Indies appear to be a better team and are, therefore, our pick to emerge on top in the upcoming contest.
