The West Indies' lack of consistency in this campaign has led to their own nemesis

Sri Lanka are set to lock horns with West Indies in a dead-rubber contest for the 39th fixture of the 2019 World Cup at at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

With England registering a win against India, Sri Lanka were knocked out of the competition while West Indies were already out of the competition with just one win from seven matches.

Having failed to capitalize on good form against Pakistan to seal a win, Sri Lanka came back from the jaws of defeat courtesy of Lasith Malinga's magic to register a 20-run victory over hosts England. The Asian side will have to toil hard in their remaining games against West Indies and India to end their campaign on a high.

With a sole win in their seven outings, West Indies team have been struggling to find form in England. Apart from the frontline pacers, none of the other players have had much impact for the two-time world champions in this World Cup. Jason Holder will be gunning for his men to register a win from this game.
