Online Cricket Betting – Free Tips | West Indies vs Sri Lanka, 2021: 1st T20I

On Thursday, West Indies will play Sri Lanka in the first of a three-match T20I series. West Indies will be the favourites in this match. They have some world-class T20 players such as Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, and Dwayne Bravo. After a disappointing series loss to New Zealand, they are back in T20I action and will be looking to improve in this series.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be playing their first T20I series since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. For this series, Sri Lanka has chosen an inexperienced squad. They can fight against their opponents’ thanks to players like Wanindu Hasaranga and Thisara Perera. We should predict a high-scoring game in Antigua.

 

Weather 

In Antigua, the weather will be sunny, and the temperature would be about 26 degrees Celsius, with no chance of rain.

 

Pitch 

The Coolidge Cricket Ground’s pitch is a good wicket to bat on in the first half, but it could get more stringent in the second half. In this place, chasing over 160+ scores is always difficult. All of the T20I matches played here have been won by the team batting first. As a result, whoever wins the toss on this wicket can bat first.
