Cricket Free Tips | Sri Lanka vs West Indies, 2021: 2nd Test

Sri Lanka will face West Indies in the series’ second and final Test match, which begins on Monday. Sri Lanka took full advantage of the home conditions in the first Test, winning by 187 runs. Their spinners combined to take 19 wickets in both innings, denying the West Indians any opportunity of making a comeback. They have a 1-0 lead in the series and are hoping to make it two-nil.

In contrast, the West Indies had no solutions for Sri Lanka’s spinners. Nkrumah Bonner and Joshua Da Silva put up a fight in the second innings, but it wasn’t enough as the visitors lost by a large margin. Because there isn’t much time left in the series, they must swiftly adjust to the spin-friendly circumstances.

 

Weather
The average temperature during the Test will be 29° C. There is rain during the first two days of the match, but clouds will cover the remaining match.

 

Pitch
Spinners took a total of 31 wickets in the most recent Test match played here. Batters will struggle in the middle of the plate against the spin. Batting in the fourth innings is difficult. Hence whoever wins the toss will most likely bat first.
