PORT OF SPAIN – West Indies begin their quest to keep their strong home record against Sri Lanka intact, when they face the unpredictable Asian side in the opening Test of the three-match series here today.

In three previous tours of the Caribbean, Sri Lanka are yet to win a series, losing two and drawing one. Overall, they have won just one Test, lost three and drawn two, reflecting their dismal record on regional soil.

However, the last time the two sides met in Sri Lanka, the hosts easily swept the two-Test series and with West Indies decimated by New Zealand in their last Test series seven months ago, the visitors will believe now is as good a time as any to break their Caribbean jinx.

However, captain Jason Holder said his side would be looking to turn the page on the recent poor results and enter the series with a positive approach. (CMC)
