WI vs SL 1st test today match prediction: West Indies are on a roll at the moment in tests as they are fresh off after a wonderful and a miraculous series victory over Bangladesh away from their home. They showed great grit and character and will be high on confidence with the arrival of their former captain in Jason Holder.

Sri Lanka were whitewashed in ODIs and lost the 3 match T20I series 2-1 before this but they are a much better side in tests and can surprise any opposition on their day. The arrival of Dhananjaya de Silva should help them big time.

West Indies(WI)

  • + Their pace quartet is one of the most lethal in world cricket at the moment.
  • + Their middle order looks settled after a long time with 2 youngsters in Kyle Mayers and Nkrumah Bonner showing some massive character in Bangladesh.
  • – The form of Jason Holder with the bat has went downhill in the last year.

Sri Lanka (SL)

  • + They have some technically solid players who are capable of handling high end pace and movement.
  • + Their pace attack is in good shape with experienced Suranga Lakmal leading the attack.
  • – They have to play attritional cricket in places like West Indies but their new approach to see the ball hit the ball might backfire as it happened in South Africa.

Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, Jermaine Blackwood, Joshua Da Silva, Jason Holder, Rahkeem Cornwall, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Shanon Gabriel
