Sri Lanka vs West Indies 1st Test Day 1 Highlights
West Indies vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Preview (Day 1)
Both the dangerous and permanent members of ICC and Test nations are going to face each other. Both the teams have some serious schedule ahead of this tour and they really need to make some serious preparations. Sri Lanka have experienced too many Test matches that ended in victory for them against top teams including India and Pakistan.
All the teams have started working on their team squad based on a mixture of experienced and young players for the World Cup that is 11 months far to take place in England. Sri Lankan opener Dimuth Karunaratne has missed the entire tour because of injury along with Sri Lanka pacers Dushmantha Chameera and Nuwan Pradeep.
On other side, the superior batting sensation Dhananjaya de Silva is also away his team on the behalf of his father death. It is strongly expected that he could make his comeback to his team after the 1st Test against West Indies and Trinidad.
The host is having a lot of confidence on the behalf of their home ground advantage and that’s the reason Sri Lanka could face some pressure, beside loosing their key players away home. West Indian side added experienced and young players to their squad in order to maintain the strength.
