The Tri-Nation series featuring hosts Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and West Indies started with the obvious result. In the first game of the seven-match series, Sri Lanka defeated Zimbabwe by 8 wickets to get to a rollicking start. The second game is expected to be a tight affair between Sri Lanka and West Indies and will help in determining which way the series pans out. The Upul Tharanga-led Sri Lanka have an edge against low-lying and inconsistent West Indies, led by Jason Holder. While Sri Lanka have been in Zimbabwe for sometime, albeit an easy outing in the two-Test series, West Indies are coming on the brink of a whitewash in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Pakistan in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The head-to-head encounter between two sides stands in West Indies favour with 27 wins while Sri Lanka are also not lagging behind with 24 triumphs from 54 matches. By the end of this tri-series, this may change a lot. We may have a game in hand and witness the first close game of the series.
