Preview –

West Indies is having the toughest time in their history and that goes not only for ODI but also for test. They are already missing out Champions trophy because they could not hold position within top 8 ODI team and that has affected their test performance as well. They lost the first test without even putting up a fight and they are looking to bounce back in the 2nd test which is looking extremely difficult for them.

The favorite for this match is the home team Sri Lanka. They already showed that they are improving after most of the senior players left the team and they were found struggling. With their added home advantage and home supporters they are formidable team against any other team of the world but right now they just need to get better as a team and that is exactly what they are doing. They will be hoping for another win in this match as well.

Prediction –

We predict that Sri Lanka will win this match.
