Preview:
West Indies Under-19s had a mixed start to the
tournament winning the first match and losing in
the second. They bundled out England Under-19s to
128 in the tournament opener to defend their total
of 164. In the second game, England posted 169
while batting first and won by 29 runs. The home
team will now take on the Sri Lanka Under-19s
on Tuesday. Sri Lankan team has some promising
names in their squad but have seen failures at the
U19 level. They lost the Youth ODI series against
Bangladesh by 0-4 margin last month.
Weather Condition/Report:
Sri Lanka’s first game of this Tri-series is expected
to be completed without any interruptions. The
ground could witness clouds at regular intervals.
Pitch Condition/Report:
The Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua has been
a low scoring venue with totals of 160s getting
defended successfully. With a couple of day gap
after the first two matches, we might see a better
track for the game between West Indies and Sri
Lanka. Generally, the tracks here are good enough
for successful chases around 240 during ODI
matches.
Average first innings score: 167 (Youth ODI
matches)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 2
