SL vs WI Dream11 Match Details
ODI Match 3 : Sri Lanka vs West Indies
Sunday, March 1
Pallekele Stadium, Pallekele
SL vs WI Dream11 Preview & Prediction:
This will be the third and final ODI and Lanka have already sealed the series. The absence of Hetmyer has dearly hurt the West Indies side and it is clearly evident from their performances. They allowed Lankan bowlers to get away with runs in the end which allowed them to chase the target in the first game and a dropped catch of Kusal Mendis by Pollard which sold his team down the lake. West Indies have fought hard than what the score card suggests. The lack of firepower from Cottrell too has hurt them badly. For the Lankans Avishka Fernando, Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis have been batting beautifully. They will looks to whitewash the Windies side and Windies have nothing to lose and that will bring out the fearless brand of cricket in them which they are known for. We are in for a super Sunday when these two teams clash.
Out of the 24 games played 246 runs is the average score batting first here and and the team batting first has won only 9 times. Lanka have won their previous game against the Windies at this venue.
The weather is expected to be sunny with temperature around 30-degree Celsius. Rain will not be a threat for this game.
No injury updates yet.
