WI vs SL Dream11 Tips for 1st Test Windies vs Sri Lanka Today Match Prediction 21 March

Share

WI vs SL Dream11: The first Test match between Windies and Sri Lanka will start today at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua. The hosts won the 3 -3-match T20I by 2-1 and whitewashed Sri Lanka by 3-0 in the ODI series. They will be looking to do the same in the 2-match test series.

Sri Lanka has managed just one win on this tour so far and is struggling to get into the rhythm. The main concern with them is the lack of consistency -they have been brilliant in some games and terrible in others. They will have to step up their game with both bat and ball to pose challenges to the hosts who are favorites in this longest format also.

The match will start at 07:00 PM IST.
