West Indies vs Sri Lanka 2021, 3rd T20I: Fantasy Cricket Tips
West Indies batsmen are struggling to score good runs in this series. Captain Kieron Pollard scored the firing 38 runs in this series opener, where he also hit six sixes in an over to Akila Dananjaya, but it is their only 30+ score in this series.
Among their bowlers, Dwayne Bravo and Obed McCoy took three wickets each in two matches.
Pathum Nissanka, who made his international debut in this series, is currently the leading run-scorer in this series by scoring 76 runs in two innings (39 and 37 runs). Danushka Gunathilake scored a half-century (56) in the last game.
Wanindu Hasaranga has taken six wickets as he took three wickets each in both matches. Akila Dananjaya took a hat-trick in the first T20I but ended that game in a very expensive way (3/62), majorly due to conceding six sixes in an over to Kieron Pollard. But in the next match, Dananjaya managed the cheap bowling figures of 4-0-13-1. Also, Lakshan Sandakan had bowling figures of 3.4-0-10-3 in the last game.
