SL vs WI Dream11 Prediction 1st Test Sri Lanka vs West Indies Playing 11, Stats, Pitch Report, Live Score

By Tarun Ganesh

SL vs WI Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the first test between Sri Lanka and West Indies. West Indies have already played two Tests against Pakistan in August this year, winning one and losing one, while this will be Sri Lanka’s first series in the new WTC cycle. The last edition of the WTC cycle saw West Indies finishing 7th and Sri Lanka 8th and they would be hoping to finish a bit better this time around. As both matches are due to be played in Galle, spin is likeliest to decide the series. On that front, Sri Lanka would seem to have a significant edge, But what West Indies do have is an experienced outfit knowing what it takes to win a Test match in Asian conditions. Earlier this year, they won a couple of Tests in Bangladesh despite being run close by the opposition in both games.

Fixture: Sri Lanka vs West Indies

Competition: 2 – match Test series

Date: 21 November

Time: 10:00 am

Team Form Guide:

SL(recent first): WDDDL

Pitch Report

The surface is likely to be spin-friendly, but with the amount of rain that’s been around in all parts of the country, the pitch is unlikely to start out very dry. Given the northeast monsoon is still in operation, expect frequent rain interruptions, particularly in the afternoons.
