West Indies lower order resistance and rain checks Lankan advance

Sri Lanka’s attempt to press for a win in the first Sobers-Tissera Trophy Test match was held up by strong resistance from the West Indies lower order batsmen and rain which washed out play after five overs into the afternoon session of the third day at the Galle International Cricket Stadium yesterday.

When play was called off for the day with 52 overs remaining to be bowled, West Indies replying to Sri Lanka’s first innings of 386 were 224-9, trailing by 162 runs with one wicket in hand, having saved the follow-on which was their first priority when they resumed at 113-6.
