West Indies take on Sri Lanka in the decider of the three-match T20I series tonight in Antigua.
Hosts West Indies led by the heroics of Kieron Pollard dominated the proceedings of the first T20I to clinch an easy win to lead the series.
However, Sri Lanka responded strongly, thanks to a brilliant all-round display from Wanindu Hasaranga who ensured that the visitors levelled the series 1-1.
Collectively, Sri Lanka’s quartet of spinners took eight wickets for 48 runs from 12.4 of overs in the second T20I to help them register a convincing 43-run victory.
West Indies will hope to bounce back from the debacle and could be the favourites to do so at Antigua on Sunday night.
The visitors will have to bring their game to the contest once again if they have to seal a win as they did on Friday night.
The pitch at the Stanford Cricket Ground is expected to aid the batsmen and once can expect scores in excess of 160 during the West Indies vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20I.
There should be a fair bit on offer for both spin and pace bowlers who have done very well in the first match.
