In the 35th match of the T20 World Cup, West Indies will take on Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. Both the teams have been neck to neck in T20Is. 

WI v SL: Match Details

  • Date – Thursday, November 04, 2021
  • Time – 7:30 PM IST
  • Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

WI v SL Match Preview:

West Indian batters haven't come to the party in the way they would have liked. Roston Chase will be the key batter at the top. Nicholas Pooran played a good knock in the last match and will take that confidence into this game. 


Jason Holder's inclusion has boosted the lower order and the bowling department. Akeal Hossain could be the game-changer. 

Sri Lanka's batting is more or less dependent on three batters - Charith Asalanka, Pathum Nissanka, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Wanindu Hasaranga can not only set up the game with the ball but with the bat as well. 

WI v SL Cricket Match Prediction:

It will be a closely contested match with Sri Lanka going slight favorites. 

WI v SL Head-to-Head:

  • Total – 14
