Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 35: West Indies vs Sri Lanka

West Indies must win both of their remaining matches by a large margin to have a chance of reaching the semi-finals. After losing two games straight to England and South Africa, they kept their cool against Bangladesh and won by three runs on the final ball of the match. With 2 points and an NRR of -1.598, they are currently in fifth place in Group 1.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has already been eliminated from the competition. They’d like to finish the season on a high note. They were eliminated from the semi-final race after losing by 26 runs to England in a must-win game on Monday. They must reconsider what went wrong during the tournament.
