West Indies have on Monday won the toss against Sri Lanka and decided to bowl first in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.
West Indies captain Jason Holder said, “Pretty good wicket. Fresh wicket. We have to tighten up on. Have our pride to play for. Still aiming the perfect game. Told the batters to give yourself a fair chance to succeed. One change: Roach is unwell, Gabriel in.”
Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne said, “Would’ve liked to bowl too. We couldn’t pass 250 often and no hundreds, those are the keys for our middle- and top-order. After the World Cup, we have to sit down and discuss what the future plans are. For now, we are focusing on World Cup. Three changes.”
