What Sri Lanka need is their batsmen to score in excess of 300 and their bowlers, particularly spinners, to create a few more opportunities. It is easier said than done though.

Sri Lanka fail to execute skills in ODIs

The first two matches of the ODI series have been quite similar to each other. In the first ODI, after getting a brilliant start, Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 232 due to a middle order collapse. West Indies chased it down comfortably courtesy of a century from Shai Hope and won by 8 wickets with three overs to spare.

In the second match, Sri Lanka batted first again. They did a little better, scoring 273 from 50 overs in this match as well. Danushka Gunathilaka was their best batsman and would consider himself unfortunate to miss out on a well-deserved ODI ton by just 4 runs after batting beautifully and crashing 10 fours and 3 sixes.

England reiterated why they are a white-ball powerhouse in the series opener, and India will have to be at their best to bounce back in the T20I series.

India's new approach doesn't pay off

There were winds of change in Team India's likely approach before the beginning of the T20I series against England. Batting coach Vikram Rathour said in a recent interview that the team will potentially try to go harder, especially while batting first in T20Is.

Virat Kohli took the conversation one step further while conceding that the team had been playing conservative cricket in the T20 format over the last few years as compared to other quality sides in this format and stressed on the need to go hard after the bowlers from the outset. To allow the Indian batsmen to do so, he packed the side with big hitters.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel today announced the West Indies squad for the first of the two-match Test series at home against Sri Lanka. The Test squad features several players who recently participated in the 2-0 victorious Test series in Bangladesh.

Two senior players who did not play in the Bangladesh series, all-rounder Jason Holder and left-handed batsman Darren Bravo, have returned to the Test squad which will be led by Kraigg Brathwaite. The first Test will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium from March 21-25. The Selection Panel also named the squad for the CWI President’s XI to face Sri Lanka in a two-day warm-up match at Coolidge Cricket Ground on March 17-18.

Speaking on the squad, Lead Selector Roger Harper said: “It is good to be able to put together a Test squad with a number of players coming off very good performances in their last series in Bangladesh. Very encouraging. It is a fantastic opportunity to build on the good work that was done in Bangladesh. It is very important to continue the process of working hard, playing with great passion, playing with determination and a great desire to succeed. Doing that consistently will bring us the right results.”

Harper added: “A number of players seized the opportunity that the tour of Bangladesh presented and booked a place for themselves in the Test team for this series. This now means that there is keen competition for places which should drive better individual performances and that of the team. I also think that these players are looking forward to displaying their skills on home soil.”

England won the opening match in the five-match Twenty20 International series by eight wickets to start their white ball campaign in style.

India asked to bat, posted a modest 124 for seven in their 20 overs. In response, England chased it down with eight wickets to spare in just 15.3 overs to finish on 130 for two.

Earlier, India lost some early wickets to be reduced to 20 for three and then 48 for four. Then, Shreyas Iyer (67: 48b, 8x4, 1x6) held the innings together. He added a crucial 54 runs for the fifth wicket with Hardik Pandya (19). But the Indian line-up never really got going.

For England the best bowler was Jofra Archer (3-23).

The chase for England was easy as their openers Jason Roy (49: 32b, 4x4, 3x6) and Jos Buttler (28) added 72 runs. Then the reliable firm of Dawid Malan (24 n.o.) and Jonny Bairstow (26 n.o.) finished the last rites as England won in style.

Yuzvendra Chahal (1-44) and Washington Sundar (1-18) picked the two wickets for India.
