Sri Lanka and West Indies will play the first Test of the series at Galle International Stadium October 14 onwards. This game will mark Jason Holder’s first Test as West Indies Test skipper in place of Denesh Ramdin. The most recent game at this ground was between India and Sri Lanka, where Sri Lanka managed a brilliant come-from-behind victory against the visitors who had the upper-hand for most part of the Test.
The wicket at Galle is spin-friendly in general and the pitch offers more grip and vicious turn as the game progresses into the fourth and fifth days.

One will expect an inexperienced West Indies batting line-up to have a tough time on this pitch negotiating the turn of Rangana Herath and Tharindu Kaushal.
Sri Lanka have historically had a very favourable record at the ground. Of the 26 Tests they played there, they have won a staggering 14 Tests, with six defeats and as many draws. West Indies have previously played two Tests at the ground, losing one and drawing the other. The drawn Test was the one where Chris Gayle scored the mammoth 333, which stands as the highest total at the ground.
