West Indies vs Sri Lanka 2021, 2nd T20I: Pitch Report
Coolidge Cricket Ground (Antigua) will host this T20I match which hosted the opening game of this series, which was also the first international match at this venue.
In the opening match of this series, Sri Lankan spinners were very useful as Akila Dananjaya (3/62) got a hat-trick before conceding six sixes in an over against Kieron Pollard while Wanindu Hasaranga (3/12) also bowled very well. However, Caribbean bowlers were also disciplined who had lack of spinners. While Sri Lanka scored 131/9 (20 overs) in the first innings, West Indies chased down that target in 13.1 overs but losing 6 wickets.
In that game, batting was not very easy. Around 165+ total could be defendable.
