West Indies v Sri Lanka 2nd Test – Match Preview

Where: Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua

West Indies v Sri Lanka 2nd Test – Team News

  • Nkrumah Bonner – The all-rounder made a fine century in the second innings as the game headed for a draw. He will likely take up the number three spot once again.
  • John Campbell – The Windies opener went into the first Test after some encouraging warm-up game knocks. He made starts, especially in the first innings, but couldn’t kick on.
  • Kemar Roach – Pace bowler Roach will be looking to bag more wickets in this game after doing well in the previous contest. He took six wickets overall, including both openers in the second innings.
  • Lahiru Thirimanne – The Sri Lanka opener enjoyed the first Test and scored 70 and 76. He will be looking to add more to his tally now.
  • Pathum Nissanka – The batsman comes into this after his second-innings ton on his Test debut. He can be inconsistent but certainly offers something to the visiting middle-order.
  • Suranga Lakmal – The bowler took five wickets in the first innings, which played a big part in keeping his side in the game. His influence wained later in the game as spin came more into play.

West Indies v Sri Lanka 2nd Test – Betting Tips and Prediction

West Indies dominated the ODI series before these Test matches and it took a fine second innings batting display from Sri Lanka to swing the game away from the hosts.

The Windies have plenty of batting in their ranks and both Nkrumah Bonner and Kyle Mayers take the pressure off their openers.

In Kemar Roach and Jason Holder, they should have that vital wicket-taking ability again. The spin of Rahkeem Cornwall will be another weapon for later in this one.

Backing them for victory at 1.88 with 1xBet looks the way to go in the outright winner market.

Mayers For Top Batsman

Kyle Mayers looks a good bet in the top West Indies’ first innings batsman market.

He made 45 in the first innings of the previous Test and followed it up with a half-century in the second innings.

The home side’s openers have shown glimpses but are still a little inconsistent at present.

It means Mayers, who will be batting at four, is well-placed to take advantage.

His price of 6.0 with bet365 is far too big and offers plenty of value.

Campbell to Outscore Brathwaite

Kraigg Brathwaite struggled in the first Test and appears a little out of form.

He scored 3 and 23 and hasn’t played a huge amount of cricket since the turn of the year.

John Campbell only made 11 himself in the second innings but had made 42 in the first.

Prior to that, he made 88 for jamaica in the Super50 and 129 and 55 in the squad warm-up fixture.

Backing him to score more runs in the match than Brathwaite looks a good bet at 2.0 with bet365.
