Sri Lanka vs West Indies 1st Test Prediction Who Will Win 14 Oct 2015

Sri Lanka v West Indies 1st test will start from tomorrow at Galle. This will be the first game of the series. West Indies is in Sri Lanka for a long tour. After playing the two test matches they will play a One-day series. This is after a long time that West Indies is in this country. This series is very important for both the teams, both badly want to win the series. Both Sri Lanka and West Indies lost their last series. On top of that these two teams had to deal with some unwanted off-field drama.

Before the series begin, a bad news came for both the West Indies team and the cricket lovers in Sri Lanka. It was declared that one of the most exciting batsmen of world cricket Chris Gayle is not going to be part of this tour. This is something that put WI team in the back foot and not only that even Sri Lankan cricket fans wanted Gayle to play there. They wanted to see his play with their own eyes. It is clear that the absence of Gayle took away some of the glamour from the series. He is the star player between these two teams and he will not be there.

Anyway, there are other players in both the teams and these players need to play well in this series if they want to strengthen their places in the team. Sri Lanka performed really badly against the Pakistan team and it is something that is bothering them a lot. It is after a long time that Sri Lanka played so badly in a home series. The selectors were not too happy and they left out some players from that team for this series against WI. They want to give all the players some clear message, either you perform or you will be out of the team. It is same for the WI side; there are not many senior players in this team, as the selectors left them out because they thought that the players were given enough chances. Almost all the international cricket teams are touring at the moment and most of these teams are filled with a lot of young cricketers. It is clear that selectors from all over the world are currently in the process of developing a perfect team for 2019 world cup.

Sri Lankan selectors, however, are still showing that they believe in Angelo Matthews’s ability. This is why he is still the captain of the test squad. He was criticized a lot by both the ex-cricketers and cricket critics for his captaincy against the Pakistan team. His personal form was not too good either. He was unable to help his team anyway in both test and ODI series. But Angelo Matthews is still one of the best players in the world cricket, so the bad form was temporary; maybe he will change things around against the WI team. Sri Lanka v West Indies 1st test will be the start of his ultimate test as a captain.

Jason Holder the new captain of WI team is rather inexperienced; he knows that his team members have a weakness against the spin bowling. But he is determined to do well in this series. Sri Lanka v West Indies 1st test can have a delayed start as there is a chance of rain of that day. But that will be a big disappointment for both the teams. Let’s hope the rain will stay away and we will enjoy some great cricket.
