The first Test of the three-match Test series between West Indies and Sri Lanka bowls off at the Queen’s Park Oval in St Clair at 10 am today.
In recent years, Windies have been making poor starts in series and gradually improving as the series goes along, sometimes winning the final match after already losing the series.
