Rain washes out play after West Indies avoid follow-on

West Indies fought back strongly to pass the follow on mark and build up their innings to 224 for nine wickets on third day of the first Test against Sri Lanka before rain washed off more than half of the day’s play yesterday at the Galle International Cricket Stadium.

The low order batters especially the seventh wicket 63 runs stand between Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder and later ninth wicket 49 runs stand between Rahkeem Cornwall and Joshua Da Silva made a good effort to build up their innings. Sri Lanka’s bowling was loose during the first hour and spinners unable to find the right lengths to both overnight batters Mayer’s and Holder and they took full advantage to collect their runs.
