West Indies vs Sri Lanka Predictions


Shai Hope's form cannot be ignored after scoring 50+ runs in his last five ODI matches. My best bet is for Shai Hope to score over 32.5 runs in this match, a feat he has achieved in 10 of his last 13 ODI innings'.

  • West Indies’ Shai Hope has scored 50+ runs in his last 5 ODI matches.
  • West Indies’ Shai Hope has scored over 32.5 runs in 10 of his last 13 ODI matches.
  • West Indies’ Shai Hope has scored the most runs in 4 of his last 5 ODIs against Sri Lanka.
  • West Indies’ Shai Hope averages 86.90 in his last 5 ODI matches against Sri Lanka.
  • Sri Lanka’s Danushka Gunathilaka has scored 55 & 96 runs in his last 2 ODI matches.

Head to Head


Sri Lanka lead the West Indies 11-4 in their last 15 completed ODI matches. West Indies won the 2nd ODI of this series by five wickets in North Sound.

West Indies Form


West Indies took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka when they won the 2nd ODI by five wickets in North Sound.

Much like the 1st ODI, Sri Lanka batted first and scored 274 runs. It was a good total considering a higher run total has never been chased down at that ground. 

Evin Lewis and Shai Hope once again got the Windies off to a very good start with a 192-run opening stand. Lewis scored 103 and Hope 84 runs but once they were dismissed the hosts almost threw the game away.

It took a 38-ball 35 by Nicolas Pooran to see the West Indies home in the final over of the match.

Shai Hope has now scored 50+ runs in five successive ODIs while opening partner, Evin Lewis’ form is also superb.

West Indies Injuries & Team News


The West Indies have wrapped up the series so may look to give others an opportunity. Kyle Mayers could replace Darren Bravo while Kevin Sinclair will hope to get an opportunity in the bowling department.

Sri Lanka Form


Sri Lanka suffered a five wicket defeat in the 2nd ODI against the West Indies. Danushka Gunathilaka batted superbly for a run-a-ball 96 runs while Dinesh Chandimal added 71 runs.

The total of 274 runs looked a good one on a slow pitch. But once again the visitors’ bowlers allowed the West Indies to get off to a strong start in the run chase.

The bowlers did manage to pull the West Indies back but in the end the hosts just got over the line in the final over.

Sri Lanka Injuries & Team News


Sri Lanka are very much depleted after Angelo Mathews returned home. With so many first choice players missing through injury, they will struggle to avoid a 3-0 whitewash.
