WI vs SL Dream11 Tips for 3rd T20I Windies vs Sri Lanka Today Match Prediction, 08 March


WI vs SL Dream11: Sri Lanka ended their nine-match winless streak in style by registering 43 runs win over Windies in the second T20I and also leveled the three-match T20I series by 1-1. A superb all-round performance was on display in the second T20I by the visitors that helped them bounce back from a thumping 4 wickets defeat in the first T20I.

This morale-boosting 43 runs win in the second game has really turned this series into an exciting rubber which looked pretty well one-sided after Pollard’s rampage against Akila Dhananjaya in the first game. Both the teams will now lock horns in the series-decider set to be played on Monday morning. It will be interesting to watch who comes out on top.

Who will win today match

Sri Lanka’s comeback has really made this decider pretty exciting. They performed as a unit and hence the outcome came in their favor. After a solid 95 runs opening-stand, Sri Lanka fumbled a bit but somehow managed to put 160 on the board which turned out to be enough against their spin attack. Including an extra spinner helped them as the hosts never really got going in the chase. However, with the quality and number of match-winners the hosts have in their lineup, it is impossible to rule out a comeback. The hosts are favorites in this WI vs SL Dream 11 Today Match Prediction.
