West Indies start as the favorites to win this series

Currently, the Caribbean team holds sixth place in the ICC World Test Championship table with 33.33 percent points. The home side has a chance of overtaking Pakistan if it wins the West Indies vs Sri Lanka Test series.

The Islanders, meanwhile, are in the penultimate spot with only 16.7 percent points. A series win in West Indies could take them closer to the seventh-placed South African team.

Kraigg Brathwaite has replaced Jason Holder as the Caribbean Test skipper ahead of the West Indies vs Sri Lanka Test series. Under Brathwaite's captaincy, a 'B' team from the West Indies whitewashed Bangladesh in the sub-continental conditions earlier this year.

West Indies have a 2-match winning streak in the ICC World Test Championship. On the other hand, Sri Lanka are on a 5-match winless streak. With Kraigg Brathwaite's men having the home advantage, the Caribbean side should emerge victorious in this 2-Test series.
