West Indies vs Sri Lanka Live Streaming - Tri Series 2013 5th ODI
Kieron Pollard won the toss and chose to bowl first on a pitch that appeared greener, drier and harder than the one on which India beat West Indies two days ago.
In absence of Dwayne Bravo, who was suspended for one match, and Sunil Narine, who has an injury, West Indies beefed up their bowling with an additional fast bowler in Jason Holder. Denesh Ramdin has also been left out, which means Johnson Charles will keep wickets.
Sri Lanka also made a couple of changes to their XI adding a fast bowler, Shaminda Eranga, in place of Rangana Herath and bringing in Jeevan Mendis for Kusal Perera.
A win in this match will take West Indies to the final, while if they lose, it will keep all three teams interested in the result of the final group-stage match between India and Sri Lanka.
