SL vs WI Match Preview West Indies Tour of Sri Lanka 1st Test:

West Indies will be touring Sri Lanka for a 2-match Test series, beginning from the 21st of November. Both the matches are scheduled to take place at Galle International Stadium. The First Test is scheduled to take place from the 21st of November, while the second one is scheduled to take place from the 29th of November. Both these games will be a part of the World Test Championship 2021-2023.

Both these teams had a disappointing run in the 2021 T20 World Cup. Sri Lanka won 2 of their 5 group stage games and ended up at the 4th spot on the points table. West Indies had a miserable campaign, the defending champions ended up losing 4 of their 5 matches, and were placed at the last spot on the points table. Both of these sides would be hoping to forget the T20 campaign and start afresh here.

Kraigg Brathwaite will lead the West Indies troops into this series. They have a pretty solid combination of both batters and bowlers in their ranks. On the other hand, Dimuth Karunaratne will lead the Sri Lankan side. Some of the senior players have been called back into the squad, including the experienced Angelo Mathews. They are a difficult side to beat at home.

West Indies is currently placed 7th on the Men’s ICC Test rankings while Sri Lanka is standing 8th on the list. In the 20 Test matches against each other, Sri Lanka won 9 games while West Indies won 4 so far.
