WI vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, Top Picks: 3rd ODI

WI vs SL Dream11 PredictionProbable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. West Indies and Sri Lanka will play against each other in the 3rd ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.

West Indies:

West Indies have been performing very well and have sealed the series by winning two consecutive matches. They won the last game comfortably by 5 wickets.

The opening pair has been in tremendous form as both Lewis and Hope have scored a century and fifty each in just two matches. The opposition has been struggling to break their partnership. Nicholas Pooran got a chance to bat in the last game, and he scored the winning runs.

Darren Bravo is batting decently, but he needs to improve in the middle-order. The power hitters Kieron Pollard and Fabian, who were supposed to be big hitters of the team, have not gotten enough chance to showcase their potential.

The bowlers did a decent job in the second match but got a little deviated in the middle overs but bowled well in the death overs. Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph have been consistent at picking up wickets in this series. Jason Mohammed continued his performance with the ball from the first match and picked up 3 wickets in the last game.

West Indies would be high on confidence after conquering the series and now eyeing on whitewashing the Lankans.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka is having a tough time in this tour as they lost the T20I series earlier, and now they lost the ODI series. In the last match, SL once again had to face disappointment as they lost the game by 5 wickets.

Danushka Gunathilaka has been the star for Sri Lanka in their recent ODI matches as he has been consistently scoring runs from the top and providing an excellent start to the team. But his partner and skipper Karunaratne has been struggling with the consistency to score runs.

Many of them believe Pathum Nissanka and Oshada Fernando can score big, but they have not been able to live up to the expectations. The wicket-keeper batsman Chandimal batted well, displaying his experience, and scored a fifty.

The youngster Ashen Bandara has batted decently in challenging situations, and Perera played his first match of the series but couldn’t score much. Wanindu Hasaranga batted very well and scored some quick runs in the end.

The bowling unit has been struggling a lot to pick up wickets in this series, and their main problem is that none of the bowlers have shown consistency. Chameera, who had picked up 2 wickets in the first match, went wicketless in the last game Nuwan Pradeep and Thisara Perera was expensive in the previous game but managed to pick up 2 wickets.

Sri Lanka would be hoping to win the last match and save themselves from the humility of losing all games in a series.

Pitch Report

The pitch has been relatively good for batting, but at the same time, bowlers have also been successful by bowling good lines and lengths. Looking at the last two matches of the series, chasing has appeared to be a little easy.

Spinners and fast bowlers have been equally successful at picking up wickets at this venue. If West Indies get to bat first, then there is a chance that it might be a high-scoring game.

Average first innings score: 233

Average first innings score: 206
