It's never a dull sight to see the West Indies cricketers play the bang-bang version of cricket. A team featuring the who's who of T20 leagues can always produce stunning feats and that was what happened when the Windies faced Sri Lanka in the first T20I. (More Cricket News)
Sri Lanka spinner Akila Dananjaya seemed to have floor the star-studded Windies by removing Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran off successive balls, but the very next over, the hat-trick hero was clobbered for six sixes in an over by Kieron Pollard.
Expect another wild ride.
