Match Preview

Sri Lanka won the first ODI in what was presumed as a contest likely to wind up in the Windies’ favor. Although the victory was by a margin of one wicket, it would have certainly elevated the spirits of the hosts as they will now eye to grapple a win in the second one-dayer and take hold of the 3-match series. The likes of Avishka Fernando (50), Dimuth Karunaratne (52), Kusal Perera (42) and Wanindu Hasaranga (42) played crucial roles behind Sri Lanka’s nerve-wracking victory in the last outing and will be hoping to render a similar exhibition in the must-win duel.

Meanwhile, West Indies would be unfortunate to have missed out on an easy win and will deploy whatever measures necessary in leveling the series at Hambantota. Shai Hope (115) was at his lethal best, and will once again don the role of an anchorman for Windies.

Teams Preview

Sri Lanka

The opening duo of Avishka Fernando (50 and Dimuth Karunaratne (52) set the platform for Sri Lanka in the last outing. The right-hand left-hand combination worked brilliantly for the hosts and will be expected to emulate their show at Hambantota. Southpaw Kusal Perera (42) exhibited a decent knock and along with Fernando and Karunaratne eased the chase for the hosts.

Kusal Mendis was the sole exception in the top-four batsmen who couldn’t capitalize much to his tally and with an experienced Angelo Mathews will look to forge a winning partnership. Coming in at No 7, all-rounder Thisara Perera upped the scoring rate with his hard-hitting shots across the park and scored a 22-ball 32, while his fellow middle-order player Wanindu Hasaranga (42) played the role of a finisher and helped Sri Lanka take a 1-0 lead over Kieron Pollard & Co.

Bowling wise, Isuru Udana (3/80) scalped the top and middle-order batsmen, with contributions from pacer Nuwan Pradeep (1/42) and Thisara Perera (1/40). Hasaranga (0/47) was economical with his leg-breaks and will look to unleash the same in the coming duel.

Sri Lanka Actual Playing XI:

Thisara Perera, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Lakshan Sandakan, Dimuth Karunaratne, Nuwan Pradeep, Isuru Udana, Angelo Mathews, Wanidu Hasaranga

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI

Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Pradeep, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis, Wanindu Hasaranga, Avishka Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan

West Indies

Shai Hope came up with another top-notch performance in the last match as he top-scored for Windies with 115 off 140 deliveries comprising a tally of 10-fours. He will carry the onus of scoring the bulk of runs for Windies along with Darren Bravo and Roston Chase as they too came up with impressive knocks of 39 and 41 respectively in the previous outing.

Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard failed to stitch crucial innings in the middle-order which could have possibly added extra 30 runs on board. Nevertheless, one could still expect them to bounce back in the coming game. Keemo Paul scored a quickfire 17-ball 32 and grabbed 2/48 in the recently concluded match and will be backing himself to simulate a similar performance in the much-coveted bout. Pacers Alzarri Joseph (3/42) and Sheldon Cottrell (0/44) bowled decently in their allotted overs and with spinner Hayden Walsh, the trio can be banked to tear the rival batting lineup at Hambantota.

West Indies Actual Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Sunil Ambris , Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran, Sheldon Cottrell, Roston Chase, Shai Hope, Fabian Allen, Alzarri Joseph, Keemo Paul

West Indies Predicted Playing XI

Winning Prediction
