WI vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Barring the six sixes off an over by Kieron Pollard, the first T20I between Windies and Sri Lanka went off as expected. Skillful Dwayne Bravo, Jason Holder, and Obed McCoy bowled different variations and a mix of slower balls on a sluggish surface where stroke-making was not easy and hence the Sri Lankan batsmen could only put up 132 runs as the target.
In terms of batting, the Windies have match-winners and six-hitting batsmen down to No. 8. The kind of hitting-prowess Windies batsmen possess is next to none. The likes of Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons, and Chris Gayle take the aerial route from Ball 1 and something similar was on display in the previous game. The Windies openers slammed 5 sixes off the first 14 balls of the run chase and hit a total of 13 that turned out to be the difference-maker.
Sri Lankan batsmen managed to hit just 3 sixes in their innings and will have to bat extremely well in the second T20I as no target seems safe against the Windies’ power-hitting prowess.
The clash will begin at 03:30 AM IST

The hosts will again be the favorites to win this fixture. Sri Lanka will have to come up with different tactics rather than a different line-up to take an edge over the hosts. The visitors need to put a total beyond Windies’ reach which is really a daunting task for the Sri Lankan batsmen given the form they are in. None of the top 7 batsmen from the Sri Lankan lineup manage to score at a strike rate of more than 120.
The visitors have now faced nine consecutive T20I losses and it won’t be much of a surprise if that extends to ten T20I winless streak.
