West Indies end the rain-hit second day on 69 for 1 after bowling Sri Lanka out for 204


Rain allowed for just half a day’s play on the second day of the second and final Test in Galle, but West Indies took big strides towards squaring the series in that short time.

Following a morning session that brought nine Sri Lankan wickets for just 91 runs, West Indies came up with a solid batting display after lunch, bringing the gap to 135 runs for the loss of only Jermaine Blackwood’s wicket before the rain came.

Kraig Brathwaite was unbeaten on 22 off 77 deliveries, and alongside him was Nkrumah Bonner on 1.
