LIVE - West Indies vs Sri Lanka 2021 - 3rd ODI

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.

Danushka Gunathilaka was the top scorer for Sri Lanka in the match with 96 runs off 96 deliveries at a strike rate of 100. He hit 10 fours and 3 sixes. Dinesh Chandimal also scored 71.

Alzarri Joseph was the best bowler for Sri Lanka in the match and picked up 2 wickets while conceding 42 runs from his 10 overs. Jason Mohammed claimed 3/47.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

West Indies - Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Jason Mohammed, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein
