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.
The match is scheduled to start at 9:30 AM local time and 7:00 PM IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
West Indies will take on Sri Lanka in the 2nd of the 3-match ODI series on Friday. After clinching the T20 series 2-1, West Indies are already 1-0 up the ODI series. A dominating batting display by openers Evin Lewis and Shai Hope sealed the game for the hosts in the first ODI by 8 wickets with 3 overs to spare. With their depth in their batting line-up and advantage of the home soil, they are likely to win the series in the second match itself with one match remaining.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka battled really hard in the first ODI as they handed an 8-wicket victory to West Indies. Now, they are in a must-win situation and will need two back-to-back victories to take the series 2-1. Despite their loss in the 1st ODI, Dimuth Karunaratne, Danushka Gunathilaka, and debutant Ashen Bandara shined with the bat. They made a lot of changes in the playing eleven which cost them the match. There is not much time left in the series and they need to come really hard to level the series in the 2nd ODI.
