Kieran Pollard’s six sixes surpassed Sri Lankan bowler Akila Dhananjay’s hat-trick and the host West Indies won by four wickets in the first T20 International of the three-match series. With this win, the West Indies took a 1-0 lead in the series. The match was very volatile. For the West Indies, the senior players have returned to the lineup. Akila Dhananjay got a hat-trick in his second over, dismissing Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran for three consecutive deliveries and pushing the West Indies completely back, but the match dice were again completely different in the next over. .
