Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Predictions: West Indies vs Sri Lanka 2021 - 3rd ODI
The 3rd ODI of the three-match series between West Indies and Sri Lanka will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua in West Indies.
After winning both the first two matches of the ODI series, West Indies have taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 and have a good chance of making it 3 in 3. For Sri Lanka to succeed, their batsmen have to add those extra 20-30 runs which is costing them the game. This, in turn, will allow the Lankan spinners to be a lot more aggressive.
West Indies won the first match of the ODI series by 8 wickets and the second one by 5 wickets.
Evin Lewis was the top scorer for West Indies in the last match with 103 runs off 121 deliveries at a strike rate of 85. He hit 8 fours and 4 sixes. Shai Hope also scored 84.
Apart from a terrible last over, Nuwan Pradeep was the best bowler for West Indies in the match and picked up 2 wickets while conceding 66 runs from his 9.4 overs.
