WI vs SRI Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Sri Lanka Tour of West Indies, 3rd ODI

Akeal Hosein hasn't really got going in this series, but at 8 Cr, he shouldn't be a poor pick.

Match Details:

The 3rd and final ODI match between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be played on 14th 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.

Preview:

Sri Lanka are leaving no stone unturned, but unfortunately for them, it seems as if their misery won’t be ending anytime soon. After losing the T20I series by a margin of 2-1, they have now lost the ODI series as well, with one game still to spare.

They couldn’t turn up in the first ODI, where brilliant batting from Shai Hope and Evin Lewis got the job done for the hosts. The Lankan Lions performed a lot better in the second ODI, but that being said, it was still not enough to secure a win.


WI vs SRI Weather Report for 3rd ODI:

It will be another day with no chance of precipitation at Antigua. The temperature is expected to be 27 °C.

Pitch Condition/Report:

While we have seen the Lankan batting unit falter on some occasions, this is a pitch that has a lot of assistance for the batsmen. From the bowlers, spinners will be the most successful.

Average first innings score:

253 (Last 2 matches played on this venue)

Record of chasing teams:

Won ­– 2, Lost – 0, Tie – 0
