SL vs WI Today Match Prediction:. Sri Lanka won the first game rather comprehensively and pocketed full 60 points in the WTC cycle. They will be hoping for a whitewash by winning the 2nd game as well. One could see the difference in quality between the two sides in almost all the departments of the game. West Indies lacked application in batting barring Nkrumah Bonner who was magnificent in the 2nd innings.
West Indian spinners were toying hard for nothing and they had no answer to Sri Lankan skipper’s resilient show in both the innings in the first game.

Angelo Mathews showed all his experience in the 2nd innings and scored an unbeaten 69 off just 85 balls to force things from Sri Lankan side as the game was heading towards a draw considering how rain played a spoilsport for a brief period in the test.
Sri Lankan spinners were too good and were testing the techniques of West Indian batters all the way through in both the innings. West Indies missed the trick by not playing Kemar Roach who is one of the most economical bowler in the recent past in test cricket all over the world. West Indies would love to have their captain leading from the front with some runs in this game.
The odds are in favor of Sri Lanka for one more time in the series in SL vs WI dream11 prediction. Sri Lanka are a respectable team in their home. Even in their latest series against England, they ran into a certain Joe Root who is in the form of his life. If not for Joe Root, Sri Lanka might have won against them as well. Sri Lanka have 2 excellent SLAs under their disposal who are well aware of their game.
West Indies would need their spinners to up their game and need Kemar Roach and Jason Holder to pick wickets with the new ball to compete against this Lankan side.
