This will be the first ODI between the two teams in the West Indies.

The special thing is that all the times these two teams have clashed so far, the match between them has happened on neutral venue only. This will be the second encounter between the two teams after the year 2000.

West Indies record fine but Sri Lanka in form

On the other hand, in today’s second match in Group D, West Indies will face Sri Lanka. Australia has already reached the quarter-finals from this group. Now if the West Indies want to stop the way of Sri Lanka and move forward, then they will have to find a big win today. The good thing for West Indies is that their previous record against Sri Lanka is excellent. Both the teams have faced each other in ODIs 14 times so far, in which West Indies have won 7 times and Sri Lanka has won 7 times. At the same time, both the teams have clashed 5 times in the Under 19 World Cup, in which West Indies have won 4 times while only Sri Lanka has won 1 time.

However, among all these figures, one record which is in favor of Sri Lanka is related to the Caribbean ground. Sri Lankan team has been victorious twice in the 3 matches played between the two teams in the West Indies. Today’s match is also in the West Indies. Now it remains to be seen how easily Sri Lanka enter the quarter-finals.
