SL vs WI Dream11 Prediction: Sri Lanka is all set to host West Indies for a two-match Test series and the first Test match is scheduled to start from 21 November at the Galle International Stadium in Galle. Both these teams are coming into this game very low on confidence as they have not done well in the longest format of the game in the recent while. Sri Lanka will surely have the upper hand and they will be expected to do well as they will be playing in their favourable home conditions. On the other hand, West Indies will be looking to improve their record as they are yet to win a Test match in Sri Lanka. In the 11 matches played in Sri Lanka, West Indies have suffered 7 losses and four games ended in a draw.

The wicket at the Galle International Stadium will offer conditions that will provide enough of help to both the spinners and fast bowlers. Things looked really challenging for the batters as seen in the last few games played here in Galle. However, bowling first will be a good decision after winning the toss and picking more of spinners and pacers will be an ideal option from the fantasy cricket point of view.
