Sri Lanka A stumble around Dhananjaya de Silva ton

Sri Lanka A 201 for 7 (Dhananjaya 104, Joseph 2-28, Jacobs 2-33, Cottrell 2-41) trail West Indies A 364 for 8 dec by 163 runs

West Indies A declared overnight on 364 for 8, and then proceeded to carve through Sri Lanka A on another shortened day of cricket. The only spark for the visitors amid the gloom was captain Dhananjaya de Silva, who stroked 104 off 143. His knock included ten fours and three sixes, and when he was dismissed in the 48th over, the sixth man out, he had 104 off Sri Lanka A's 181 runs. The next highest scorer on the day for them was Wanindu Hasaranga with 24.

The hosts' bowlers shared the wickets around, with the pace of Sheldon Cottrell and Keon Joseph and the legspin of Damion Jacobs accounting for two each. Offspin-bowling allrounder Rahkeem Cornwall also chipped in with the wicket of Hasaranga as Sri Lanka A slipped to 201 for 7 in 53 overs, still 163 away from drawing level with their opponents.
