West Indies Men’s tour of Sri Lanka is underway and today 2nd ODI will take place at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Hambantota at 2:30 pm local time and 09:00 am GMT.
Sri Lanka knows the conditions and confidence of a hard-earned victory, but can you use them to close the series with a game?
Three game series gives teams very little time to recover from defeats and put their game together. Fortunately for the West Indies, although they missed out on starting the series, they had many positive aspects that made the process a little easier.
Despite the middle order’s failure, they would most like the eyelash of the West Indies, with most of the top 4 doing well before the lower order showed a lot of grit when it came to putting the finishing touches on an inning that did a great job Had lost steam. Their bowlers could not quite lead them to victory, but they pushed Sri Lanka to its limits and the home team deserved their victory.
Sri Lanka has done many things right, especially the number of posts they have received from the overall hit order. Now the key would be for them to maintain that level of consistency and seal the series – something they weren’t quite familiar within the recent past. But with the familiarity of home and a hard-earned victory, they are sure to believe that this is possible.
Do you know what happened last time?
Shai Hope’s century underscored a strong performance by the West Indies when they gained 289/7. The top three of Sri Lanka had solid starts that set the tone for a successful chase and later cushioned them in the innings against the wickets when Wanindu Hasaranga’s 39-ball 42 failed to bring the hosts home in the final.
What Captains Of Both Teams Said?
Dimuth Karunaratne (Sri Lanka): “Winning is, of course, the last thing, but we made some mistakes that we have to learn from. I’m just worried that we’ve given 90 runs in the last ten overs that we’ll have to fix in the next game. “
Kieron Pollard (West Indies): “Good cricket game, with the crowd on their feet until the end. Usually people like me and Pooran end it, but it couldn’t happen today. A few gentle layoffs in the middle really pushed us back. “
