Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Devon Smith, 0.6 ov), 2-8 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 4.3 ov), 3-8 (Kieran Powell, 5.2 ov), 4-24 (Roston Chase, 13.4 ov), 5-53 (Shai Hope, 23.1 ov), 6-168 (Shane Dowrich, 55.5 ov), 7-183 (Devendra Bishoo, 61.4 ov), 8-189 (Jason Holder, 62.6 ov), 9-201 (Miguel Cummins, 68.1 ov), 10-204 (Shannon Gabriel, 69.3 ov)
0.6 to DS Smith, his nightmare continues! This hasn't been a pleasant Test comeback after seven years. Feels for this delivery outside off, caught on the crease as he pokes at this length delivery and Dhananjaya takes a straightforward catch at third slip.. 3/1
4.3 to KC Brathwaite, this is magnificent from Gunathilaka! Runs in from point, dives full length forward and takes a stunner. Bounce does Brathwaite in, the late away movement meant he was squared up as this lobbed off the the leading edge. Soft signal is OUT Replays confirm this was an absolutely clean catch. Outstanding. Getting off the blocks was the key, full marks to Gunathilaka. 8/2
5.2 to KOA Powell, off the edge and snaffled at slips. West Indies are unravelling against the moving ball. The umpires converge to check upstairs. This is floated across at length, keeps low, takes the edge and goes straight into the bucket hands of the second slip fielder who moved to his right to complete the catch.. 8/3
55.5 to SO Dowrich, Is that out?! He's pinned in front of off, and the umpire's given it. Dowrich reviews. Length ball outside off, and angling in sharply into middle stump. Dowrich can't get bat to ball, and the delivery hits his front leg. The replay shows that impact's on middle, and would've crashed into the stumps. Out for 71!. 168/6
61.4 to D Bishoo, edged and gone! Bishoo is clueless, beaten for pace and the angle. Kumara gets this to straighten from around the stumps as he pitches short of length, Bishoo is squared up as he jabs at this to get a thick edge and Mendis dives low to his right to complete an excellent catch at second slip. Kumara lets out a roar. He's pumped up. Bishoo can't do much. 183/7
69.3 to ST Gabriel, thin dge and gone. The bounce has done the trick. Gabriel wafts at this lifter, gets some bat as Dickwella completes a straightforward catch. Four-for, for Kumara. Super effort.. 204/10
13.4 to RL Chase, played on! Strikes in his first over. Chase's poor run continues. Full on off, and he tries to drive towards mid off. Leaves a gap between bat and pad, and with the ball coming in, Chase is in no position to connect with that shot. Takes a splice of the bat's inside, and then crashes into middle stump. Goodbye!. 24/4
23.1 to SD Hope, brilliant grab at second slip. Catching has been stunning today. This was all the more difficult because he had to move to his left, and this was travelling. Peach of a delivery, drew him forward, minute deviation of the pitch to draw the edge and a super catch. Kusal Mendis has good hands, doesn't he? Hope can't do much today.. 53/5
62.6 to JO Holder, magnificence from Dilruwan at gully has made that catch possible. He literally flew to his left. Holder looks to punch on the up, gets a thick outside edge that travels. He anticipated this quickly and flung himself full stretch to his left to pluck that.. 189/8
68.1 to ML Cummins, straight into the lap of short leg. The drift has done the trick. Dilruwan angles this in from around the stumps, Cummins jabs hard to get a thick inside edge, pouched at a comfortable height.. 201/9

2.3 to MDKJ Perera, under-edged to the keeper! There's the breakthrough. Length ball outside off, and Perera attempted to cut it away. The ball stays slightly low, and it takes a feather edge through to Dowrich. Roach on fayahh. 0/1
6.3 to ML Udawatte, the slow finger of death! Full on off, and jags in sharply. Udawatte's halfway in front, and the ball sneaks past his defense and hits his front leg. Huge appeal from the infielders, and umpire Gould says 'bye bye!' Udawatte considers reviewing, but before he can decide, the umpire says he's too late. 16/2
26.1 to BKG Mendis, played on! Full just outside off, and Mendis goes for an uncharacteristic slog. Tries to play across the line, maybe over mid on, and that's why he's walking off. The ball came in slightly, took the inside edge, and crashed into the stumps. West Indies are delighted!. 75/3
30.1 to DM de Silva, another lbw appeal! And they're referring it. Full on off, and it cannons into his back leg in front of off stump. Just wonder if impact was outside off. Misses the drive completely, playing outside the ball's line. The delivery came in, hit him in front of middle, and would've definitely crashed into middle- and leg-stump. The umpire has to reverse his decision! Sri Lanka five down.. 85/5
42.6 to ARS Silva, thick edge and gone! Loose, loose drive from Roshen. Chases a full and wide delivery, no feet, a nick and Dowrich makes no mistake. Poor, complete loss in concentration.. 118/6
27.2 to MD Gunathilaka, full on off, and that hits the batsman's front pad as he misses the flick. Appeal for lbw turned down. Reviewed straightaway. The batsman played completely outside the ball's line and has paid the price for it. Hits him in front of off, and the ball would've comfortably crashed into middle and leg. Roar in the stadium!. 81/4
53.4 to N Dickwella, second slip takes that! Length ball on that channel outside off, and Dickwella goes for that expansive drive. Through his shot too late, and the ball takes the outside edge. 147/7
55.2 to RAS Lakmal, leading edge! And taken at cover. Sri Lanka reeling. Full on middle, and he tries to whip it towards square leg. It takes the edge off Lakmal's big bat, and loops into the air on the off side. Simplest of catches. 147/8
57.6 to CAK Rajitha, crashes into off stump once again! Breaks the stumps off the over's first and last ball. This time it's not a no ball, and the wicket goes cartwheeling once again. Pitched full on off, and Rajitha was playing the leg stump line. His straight drive is nowhere near the ball, and this time Holder and co. can celebrate. 150/9

0.5 to DS Smith, chopped on Playing on the back foot, and the ball takes the inside edge off Smith's attempted punch. He shuffled across to the off side, but the ball came in sharply. West Indies one down!. 1/1
2.6 to KC Brathwaite, two in two overs for Lakmal! Forward short leg this time. Seventh wicket before the break. Length ball on middle, and going down leg. But Brathwaite tries to flick it to the leg side, edges it through to his thigh, and then the ball lobs straight to Udawatte under the helmet. 8/2
6.4 to RL Chase, meanwhile, Chase has a brain fade. Swishes at a slightly wide delivery outside off as he goes for a cut, cramped for room and manages a thick edge to Kusal Perera, who takes this in front of his face, at a comfortable height, at first slip. Real trouble now for West Indies.. 14/4
3.3 to SD Hope, party time for Sri Lanka! Crashes into off stump. Full on off and forces Hope to come forward. He can't do that in time, and the ball goes past the outside of his bat and sends off stump flying. 147kph. 9/3
7.2 to KOA Powell, short delivery outside leg, he shapes to pull and is into the stroke a tad too early. The big doubt was if there was some glove on it. Replays seem to suggest there was some bat on it, forget the glove, as Dickwella completes an excellent grab. The batsman reviewed immediately, raising signs of this being overturned, but not the case. Another poor stroke, West Indies in tatters.. 14/5
15.4 to SO Dowrich, oh, dear. Dowrich, what have you done? Fetches a pull from outside off and toe-ends this straight to Rajitha at mid-on. He can't believe it. Spectators look worried too.. 41/6
15.6 to D Bishoo, second wicket in the over! Daylight between bat and body, and he gets castled attempting the back-foot punch. Bishoo misses and Rajitha hits. 41/7
19.1 to JO Holder, Big wicket, Holder edges this! Kusal Mendis is very safe. Full outside off and Holder sticks his bat outside the stumps. The ball seams away oh-so-slightly after pitching, and induces the outside edge. Second slip makes no mistake. 56/8
28.2 to ML Cummins, gone! Slip takes this. Flighted outside off, and he goes for a leg-side slog. The ball comes off the bat's top edge, and flies straight to Dhananjaya at first slip. 82/9

2.3 to ML Udawatte, cuts back in sharply to beat the inside edge and hit him on the pad, big appeal and umpire Ian Gould says 'on your bike, mate.' But, Udawatte doesn't want to get on it yet. Reviews Unfortunately for him, this was given out on the field, so the ball would've had to just clip the stumps for the decision to stay. He was hit on the back leg, and the stride wasn't too much forward, so the ball didn't have much to travel. Ball tracking confirms this would've hit middle and off.. 9/1
8.1 to MD Gunathilaka, brain freeze from Gunathilaka, but Bishoo has taken a superb catch back-pedalling from mid-on. This is short and angled in but Holder's height allows him steep bounce., Gunathilaka looks to fetch the pull from way outside off, only manages a top-edge. Bishoo runs back, trembles a little but holds on. Big, big wicket.. 30/2
12.5 to DM de Silva, he shoulders his arms, and the ball crashes into off stump! A bowler's dream ball. Holder's off to celebrate. It was a length ball wide outside off. But the delivery takes a banana swing inwards after pitching, and sends off stump cartwheeling. The batsman can't believe it. 48/3
14.5 to ARS Silva, Holder on fire! It was full outside off, and Silva tries to drive straight. The ball sways outwards, and then takes the bat's outside edge. Pocketed by second slip. 50/4
18.4 to N Dickwella, What a day for the home boy! Length ball on off and angling into Dickwella. He tries to play across the line, but with minimal foot movement, Dickwella was asking for trouble. The ball creeps inwards, and then smashes into the top of middle. Second four-wicket haul in the match for Holder. 74/5
24.6 to BKG Mendis, Holder wins an lbw appeal from on-field umpire Gould, but Mendis reviews it immediately. It's a fair delivery from Holder. Good length, skidding in and keeping low to pin Mendis on the back pad in line with off stump. The tracker returns three reds and Mendis has to go. Holder celebrates his five-for. What a start for him and West Indies on the fourth afternoon. A wicket-maiden to open the day. 81/6
