Sri Lanka Legends to win: Why is this a good bet?
- Sri Lanka have a stronger team on paper
- Their players have more international experience on the whole
- West Indies lack star presence in the team
- Sri Lanka won their opening game in the Road Safety Series last year
Sri Lanka Legends are fielding a squad that is worthy of being called the legends.
They have cherry-picked some of their best performers in the limited-over format, many of whom were responsible for ushering in the golden era for Sri Lanka cricket.
The team will be captained by Tilakaratne Dilshan, who will play alongside Jayasuriya, Upul Tharanga and Chamara Silva. These players add an incredible depth to their batting, something that may very well be unmatched by the West Indies side. There are over 30,000 runs scored between these players.
In the bowling department, they can rely on Ajantha Mendis and Rangana Herath, who were among the regulars in the Sri Lanka National Cricket Team.
These players have a great deal of experience and during their careers, they have often faced the West Indies side. Many times, they have also emerged as the victors.
Moreover, when Sri Lanka Legends played last season in the tournament, they beat Australia Legends by 7 runs in their first game. Post that, however, they lost to India Legends by 5 wickets.
Brian Lara, leading the West Indies side
The West Indies Legends will be led by Brian Lara, one of the most successful cricketers in the history of the sport. He has been joined by the likes of William Perkins, Dwayne Smith, Ridley Jacobs, and others.
One interesting thing to note here is few of these players played their last international game back in the early 2000s – right when the likes of Jayasuriya and Dilshan were starting to find their peak.
Moreover, players like William Perkins and Adam Sanford have had very limited international experience.
That said, there are many names in this team who have kept themselves busy through the years by playing in T20 leagues like the Caribbean Premier League. This may make them somewhat of a specialist in the T20 format.
This game will be an entertaining affair but expect Sri Lanka Legends to come out on the top.
