Host West Indies will be looking forward to winning their first home Test series since 2014 when they take on Sri Lanka in the third and last Test match at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

This will be the first ever day-night Test match on Windies soil. West Indies have been excellent with both bat and ball throughout the series and a draw or win will seal the series for them. On the other hand, Sri Lanka is low on confidence due to the ball - tampering scandal and captain Dinesh Chandimal is also unavailable for this Test as he is banned for one Test due to his involvement in ball tampering in the second Test match at St. Lucia. West Indies lead by 1-0 in this three Test match series.
