The 3rd ODI between Sri Lanka and West Indies will be held at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. The match will be kicked off on 14th March (Sunday) at 19:30 (GMT+6). 

The Lanka Lions are leaving no stone unturned, but unfortunately their misery does not seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. After losing the T20I series by 2-1, they have now lost the ODI series too, with one match remaining.

They could not turn up in the 1st ODI, which the hosts won the game, thanks to the brilliant batting from Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. The Sri Lankan Lions performed much better in the 2nd ODI, but it was not enough to register a victory.

Weather
At Antigua, it will be another day with no chance of rainfall. The temperature will stay around 27 Degrees Celsius.

Pitch
Though the Lankan batting unit has struggled on some occasions, this is a pitch that provides plenty of support for batsmen. Spinners will be the most successful from the bowlers.
