In spite of some resistance from West Indies’ lower order, Sri Lanka kept on holding the pros at Galle on a day where downpour was the significant feature on Tuesday (November 23). The guests figured out how to stick on through some nuggety thumps from Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder and Rahkeem Cornwall, every one of whom retaliated in the same way to keep the Lankans under control.
Mayers and Holder carried on their short-term work with a consistent presentation prior to withdrawing in rather fast progression. Cornwall assumed control over the stick and observed a coarse accomplice in Joshua Da Silva as the home side kept on feeling the disappointment of being not able to wrap things up.
Similarly as the association was broken at the stroke of the second new ball, downpour showed up to have the last say toward the beginning of the second meeting with no play conceivable from there on. The day saw only 38 overs in which West Indies oversaw in excess of 100 runs for the deficiency of three wickets.
With just six meetings remaining and more climate interferences expected, Sri Lanka’s chase of triumph appears to have hit a barrier, in spite of the fact that they actually have a sizable first-innings lead with only one West Indies wicket left.
