West Indies vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 Prediction & Betting Tips

After beating Sri Lanka in the first match, West Indies will be looking to seal the series in the second T20I itself when they take on Sri Lanka at the Coolidge cricket ground. The match is set to get underway at 6:00 PM local time.

West Indies might have won the 1st T20I but they should know that they were not at their best. The bowlers were on the money and restricted Sri Lanka to a paltry 131 before chasing it down with 6 wickets down. For Sri Lanka, Dickwella and Nissanka looked good but they failed to convert their starts into a big score. Against a quality bowling lineup, this is a grave sin. Sri Lanka would also need their ace batsmen like Chandimal, Matthews, Gunathilaka to contribute with the bat. 

West Indies on the other hand is very unpredictable.  On their day, they can chase even the stiffest target, on the other day, they may bundle out for not much. They too would want their batsmen to convert their starts into decent scores. Sri Lanka depend a lot of their spinners and West Indies won’t mind them bowling. We think a six hitting fest is on the cards.

Toss Prediction

The kind of firepower West Indies have in their batting, they’d like to chase. Same can be said about Sri Lanka

Pitch Report

We thought that the pitch in the previous game was little on the slower side. Spinners will get much more out of the wicket than the pacers.

Weather Report

The weather looked on the match day. There will be few clouds around but rain should stay away from the game

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

West Indies picked up a decent win in the previous game. We don’t think they’ll make any changes in their playing XI, unless there is an injury concerns

WI Key Players

  • Chris Gayle - Gayle was in decent form in the Pakistan Super League. He got a very good delivery and was dismissed for the 1st ball duck in the last match but we’ll back him to come good in the 2nd T20I.
  • Kieron Pollard - Kieron Pollard shattered records and smashed six sixes in an over of Akila Dananjaya. He’s known to hit big sixes against the spinners and Sri Lanka heavily depend on their slower bowlers. He too is expected to continue his decent form.
  • Dwayne Bravo - The veteran all rounder will be very handy for West Indies. He can get some quick runs while can deceive the batsmen with his variations. We;ll back him to have a decent game.

WI Team Form

West Indies lost their last series to New Zealand. However, they picked up a hard fought win the 1st T20I.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Dwayne Bravo, Kevin Sinclair, Obed McCoy, Fidel Edwards

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Sri Lanka too are expected to field the same XI despite a mediocre performance in the last game. If there is any change, then it could be the inclusion of Dimuth Karunaratne to provide some stability in the batting order.

SL Key Players

  • Niroshan Dickwella - Dickwella is a fine T20 batsmen. He can take the attack to the opposition and get Sri Lanka to a quick start. He batted well for his 33 in the last match and can be backed to play a longer inning in the 2nd T20
  • Thisara Perera - Perera adds a lot of balance to the Sri Lanka team. He’s a dangerous batsmen down the order while can bowl some handy overs. 
  • Akila Dananjaya - He might have hit for 6 sixes in an over by Kieron Pollard but he bowled well in his other three overs and picked up a hattrick too. He’d like to make a statement in the next game. He’s a good spinner and the pitch might support him.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka haven’t played a lot of T20 cricket of late. There last series was against West Indies which they lost 2-0. They have also lost their last 5 T20Is on a row.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Pathum Nissanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews (c), Ashen Bandara, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera, Nuwan Pradee

WI vs SL Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Nicolas Pooran and Niroshan Dickwella at 9.5 and 9.0 are our best picks. Pooran is a destructive batsmen while DIckwella batted well in the last game. He too can score very quickly

  • Batsmen

    Chris Gyle at 10, Evin Lewis at 9.0 and Danushka Gunathilaka at 9.0 will be our batsmen. Gayle is coming from a decent PSL and is among the best batsmen in this format while Lewis was in fine form in the West Indies Super 50 cup. Gunathilaka is also a classy batsmen.

  • All rounder

    Kieron Pollard at 10, Thisara Perera at 9.5 and Wanindu Hasaranga at 9.0 will add a lot of depth in our team.  Pollard was in beast mode in the last game and stroked six sixes in an over while Perera can hit the ball a long way. He can bowl some handy overs too. West Indies batsmen failed to pick Hasaranga as he picked up a 3-fer

  • Bowlers

    Fidel Edwards at 8.5, Akila Danajaya at 8.5 and Kevin Sinclair at 8.0 will complete our team. Dananjaya picked up a hattrick in the last game and if we take out that one over against Kieron Pollard, he bowled very well. Sinclair will be very handy with his spinners while Edwards is a veteran bowlers and bowled well in the last game.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Evin Lewis will be out skipper while Thisara Perera can be backed as his deputy

WI vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Evin Lewis(c), Danushka Gunathilaka, Chris Gayle

  • All Rounder:Kieron Pollard, Thisara Perera(vc), Wanindu Hasaranga

  • Wicket Keeper:Niroshan Dickwella, Nicolas Pooram

  • Bowler:Fidel Edwards, Akila Dananjaya, Kevin Sinclair
