West Indies Reviews
We know that West Indies is a strong team when it comes to the T20 format of cricket. This country had produced hard-hitter of the ball. Kieron Pollard is going to lead this team during this home series against Sri Lanka. Kieron Pollard had a lot of opportunities to play t20 leagues but he preferred to play for his country. The batting order of the West Indies is strong. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis will be opening the inning and Chris Gayle will be batting at number three. Gayle had got his form back as we saw him in some opening matches of the Pakistan Super League.
The middle order of the West Indies is also strong. Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, and Kieron Pollard, all can bat well in the middle and last overs. The above-mentioned players can give a boost to the batting order of the West Indies. Like the batting, the bowling department of West Indies is also strong. Shai Hope, Romario Shepherd, Jason Holder, and Alzarri Joseph will be leading the bowling department of the West Indies.
Sri Lanka Reviews
Sri Lanka had faced some problems right before this tour of the West Indies. They lost their bowling coach just after the two days of his appointment. Their captain did not come with the team as he lost his passport. They had not found the leader of yet. We are hoping that Angelo Matthews is going to lead the Lankan side for this series of t20s after the absence of Dasun Shanaka. Pathum Nissanka and Ramesh Mendis will be making their debut in international cricket during this series.
Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella, Thisara Perera, Diumuth Karunaratne, Oshada Fernando, Danushka Gunathilaka, and Angelo Mathews will be part of the final playing eleven for this match. Some best sping bowlers are also in the squad of Sri Lanka like Wanindu Hasaranga and Lakshan Sandakan. They can bowl well against the strong batting order of the West Indies. Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal and Dushmanth Chameera are the key bowlers from Sri Lanka.
