West Indies are all set to host Sri Lanka in the second and final match of the Test series. Having won the ODI series 3-0, West Indies could only manage a draw against Sri Lanka in the first Test. Their batsmen did a spectacular job by batting the entire fifth day and keep the Sri Lankan bowlers at bay.
West Indies won the toss and opted to bowl first. Jason Holder led the bowling with a spectacular fifer in the first innings and Sri Lanka could only get 169 runs on the board thanks to 70 runs from Lahiru Thirimanne. Helped by a fine half-century from Rahkeem Cornwall, West Indies scored 271 runs in response. This time around, Suranga Lakmal picked up five wickets for Sri Lanka.
The Sri Lankan batsmen, led by fine knocks from Lahiru Thirmanne, Oshada Fernando and Niroshan Dickwell and a fantastic century from Pathum Nissanka, scored 476 runs in the second innings, taking a 375-run lead going into the last innings.
Sri Lankan bowlers had a sniff when Campbell was dismissed with just 12 runs on board, but Nkrumah Bonner scored a century while Kyle Mayers scored 52 runs to grind out a draw.
