BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor1525023.33643100
0.4 to JK Silva, what a ripper, West Indies are sure Silva has nicked this, bowler and keeper celebrate, umpire Tucker is not interested, and we have an early review, spot on to the right hander, angled in, pitching good length on off, then snaking away even as Silva prods half forward, umpire Erasmus is the TV official, he reckons there is enough evidence to overturn this, and Silva is gone, there was a sound, but no obvious visible edge. 1/1
34.1 to LD Chandimal, and West Indies have broken through in the second session, coming back from outside off, short of a good length, Chandimal tries to punch against the slight angle created by the movement, and plays on off an inside edge. 90/5
Kemar Roach1243012.50593000
11.2 to BKG Mendis, nice and full, angled in and straightens outside off, Mendis has a loose waft at it with his feet glued to the crease. The on-field call is not out. Holder wants a review, though rather belatedly. The TV umpire has a look at it and feels that there is enough evidence to overturn the call. The debutant has to go. Sri Lanka have been reduced to 34 for 3. 34/3
Jason Holder1112222.00532000
10.5 to FDM Karunaratne, captain strikes at the stroke of drinks, angles it in full from round the stumps, Karunaratne brings bat down to try and clip it, but it has already crashed in to the pads by then with some further inward shape, given right away, Karunaratne reviews, but ball tracker says that is hitting leg stump. 34/2
20.3 to AD Mathews, has that carried? Holder produces the outside edge, Brathwaite the man at second slip, cupping his hands to grab it low in front, umpire Tucker is not sure, and they will take a look at replays, just back of a length, straightening outside off stump, Mathews committed to play as he pushes forward, Brathwaite seems to have his fingers under it on both side and front angles, and umpire Tucker raises his finger, Holder struck at the stroke of drinks, he has done so again just before lunch. 59/4
Jomel Warrican2026743.35813200
43.4 to MDKJ Perera, debutant gets his maiden Test wicket with a full toss, Perera took a step out and hit it straight into the hands of the bowler, Warrican takes it and smiles. 127/6
58.2 to TAM Siriwardana, Taylor has made this catch look easy at long off, it wasn't, he had to make way to his left, and get on his toes to take it over his shoulder, Siriwardana targetting the straight boundary again, but hit it from close to the bottom of the bat. 173/8
65.4 to KTGD Prasad, nine down, Warrican ends the partnership, pitches middle and off and turns across Prasad, who looks to defend from the crease and nicks it behind. 200/9
65.6 to N Pradeep, Warrican has his fourth on debut, tosses it up full, Pradeep comes forward to defend, but the ball pitches near his left boot and strikes it, he is given, but goes for the review, tracker returns umpire's call for hitting off stump. 200/10
Devendra Bishoo801812.25341000
51.3 to MDK Perera, appeal for stumping, Perera swings and misses, his momentum takes him outside the crease, sharp work from Ramdin to gather and remove the bails quickly, Perera drags the foot back in, but it is in the air for some time, is it grounded when the bails come off, the magnified side angle suggests it was not, and Perera has to walk back. 149/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dhammika Prasad1233442.83585011
0.6 to SD Hope, that is plumb, Hope has tried to defend this incoming length delivery but he has missed it by some way, caught half forward and the umpire raises his finger immediately, tracker shows that is hitting leg. 7/1
10.1 to D Bishoo, short and wide, Bishoo feathers one through to the keeper. He flays at that and a nick is gratefully accepted by the keeper. No feet movement again, which definitely had a part to play in that dismissal. 33/2
14.4 to DM Bravo, no. But Dhammika has got Bravo nonetheless. Short outside off, and Bravo fishes at that with not much feet movement. Flirts away from his body and gets a thick inside edge which disturbs the furniture. The umpires check for a no ball but he is fine. Dhammika is in the middle of an exceptional spell and he gets just reward for his work this morning. 37/3
42.1 to J Blackwood, He strikes right away. Fourth wicket for Prasad. Full teaser, largely holds its line outside off, Blackwood chases it with a loose drive, he chases it away from the body and feeds an outside edge... Kusal flings to his right and snaffles it. 105/6
Nuwan Pradeep1132402.18542000
Rangana Herath2053911.95933000
55.5 to D Ramdin, has that review played a role in breaking the concentration of Ramdin? Herath tosses that up on middle, Ramdin dances down the track and swings across the line, beaten all ends up and the ball sneaks through to rattle the stumps. What an ugly hoick that was! Herath has his first of the innings, not a person you want to be gifting wickets to.. 137/7
Dilruwan Perera11.232832.47531100
58.6 to JO Holder, big wicket! Flat and quick once more, no turn. Holder prods at the defensively and a thick outside edge flies to Mathews who fumbles but takes the rebound. Sharp take and a huge wicket with tea not too far away.. 149/8
60.6 to JE Taylor, got im. Taylor doesn't offer a shot and is struck right in front of middle, the umpire raises his finger immediately. He opts not to review but the review was definitely worth it. That was spinning prodigiously. He trudges off though and WI are 9 down.. 151/9
64.2 to JA Warrican, gone! Warrican chips his wicket back to Perera. A flighted delivery outside off, Warrican looks to force the ball through the off side but the ball spins and the ball scoops up to the bowler who wraps up the innings. Sri Lanka earn a vital 37-run lead. 163/10
Milinda Siriwardana1022622.60441100
31.4 to MN Samuels, wicket, just before lunch. Samuels is enticed into a nothing drive and the ball takes the outside edge, giving Mathews an easy chance at slip. Good bowling, slower through the air, which extracted a little bit of turn. WI slip further and are in need of a middle order resurgence. 76/4
37.3 to KC Brathwaite, and given! After a lull in play, Brathwaite has succumbed. He drives loosely at a ball and does he get an edge? He is given out by the umpire but opts for the review. The bat does hit the ground but it looks like has taken the edge too. Or has he? Is there enough evidence to overturn the on-field decision? I don't think so. It was an excellent catch by Kusal, staying low and taking the edge. And there is not enough evidence and Brathwaite has to walk back after an impressive innings. Much slower from Siriwardana but the ball spun and grazed the outside edge. 89/5

Jerome Taylor832623.25395000
0.1 to FDM Karunaratne, gone! First ball. What a soft dismissal that is. Taylor has the wicket. Wow, Taylor delivers that from a few feet behind the crease which may have been the cause for the wicket. A slow, gentle inswinger to Dimuth who flicks in the air very early, and the ball carries to Bishoo at square leg who runs around and takes a good diving catch to his left. Interesting, interesting times! That was drifting down leg and the ball was so slow that he fell over while playing the stroke. 0/1
36.1 to LD Chandimal, Fractionally short and cuts back in, Chandimal jabs at it, takes the inside edge en route to Ramdin, who flies to his left and completes a sharp catch. Two wickets in three balls for WI. Chandimal was out off the inside snick in the first innings as well. 84/4
Kemar Roach611502.50303000
Jason Holder51901.80251000
Jomel Warrican2526222.481094100
21.5 to BKG Mendis, he drags that ball back, and the ball spins. And there is the wicket. Lands on a perfect length, Mendis pushes at that and feathers one through to Ramdin. That is the length to bowl on this wicket. Wicket here, just when the fielders were looking for stumps. Good take by Ramdin too. 55/2
35.5 to JK Silva, And it gets gloomy for Silva after having done all the hard work. Warrican finds the outside edge, this one pops into the lap of first slip. Pitched on a leg-stump line and spins across the batsman, who looks to poke to leg, and edges it to Blackwood. The 105-ball vigil ends. 84/3
Devendra Bishoo2036103.05822100
Kraigg Brathwaite11.342962.52543100
55.1 to TAM Siriwardana, got 'im! Brathwaite provides the breakthrough, he bowls this from round the wicket, sends this towards the off stump and then gets it to spin away, gets the outside edge and a good sharp catch is taken at first slip, Blackwood had to react quickly, he takes a two-handed catch to his right, Brathwaite thoroughly enjoyed that and why not, that was a proper spinner's wicket. 151/5
59.1 to MDKJ Perera, it's actually the last ball before lunch as Brathwaite gets another one! Kusal gets on the back foot and looks to cut, gets a bottom edge and that is a fine catch by Ramdin, Sri Lanka are six down. 165/6
69.2 to HMRKB Herath, gone this time, tries one more sweep, fetching it from well outside off, the ball turns sharply, and the top edge is safely within slip's sights this time. 195/7
71.4 to MDK Perera, holes out to deep midwicket, that's the fourth for Brathwaite! He tosses it up around off and Dilruwan went for a big slog-sweep but it didn't have enough to clear the fielder and Kemar Roach pouched it there easily. 203/8
75.2 to AD Mathews, soft dismissal for Mathews off a reverse sweep and Brathwaite has taken is maiden Test five-for! It was back of length, not quite there to be reverse-swept, and turning in and Mathews went ahead with the unorthodox shot, only to lob the ball to slip for an easy catch. 206/9
75.3 to N Pradeep, gone first ball and Brathwaite has finishes with six! The umpires are checking actually if the catch was taken cleanly at alip or not. Pradeep presses forward for the length delivery and played inside the line, and a thick outside edge was going away from Blackwood but he did very well to go low to his right and take it cleanly with one hand just above the ground. 206/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dhammika Prasad1023813.80455011
8.6 to KC Brathwaite, loud, loud appeal, given out this time and Brathwaite decides not to review it, was pretty plumb! The ball came in towards the off stump, Brathwaite defended but missed the line of the ball and it hit his bent back leg right in front of off. 20/1
Nuwan Pradeep301103.66142001
Rangana Herath19.535642.82853200
51.1 to D Ramdin, edged and gone! Herath strikes. Excellently bowled. Tossed up on off, Ramdin prods defensively and takes the outside edge, Mathews snaffles it up at slip. Not a bad ball to block but Herath's wicket that. Terrific pace and drift. 124/5
51.5 to DM Bravo, another in the over! Bravo goes now and the champion bowler Herath has struck again. Pitches on a fullish length, huge puff of dust exploding but skids on a touch, Bravo plays defensively and another thin edge is easily accepted by Mathews. The set-man goes and WI slump further.. 125/6
57.5 to JE Taylor, holes out to long-on now. Taylor did the right thing, in trying to go for some runs. He connected well too and wanted to hit it down the ground but the ball drifts in and he only succeeds in smashing the ball down long-on's throat. Siriwardana has three now. 136/8
65.5 to KAJ Roach, and that is it. Roach has been given out. But he has gone for the review. Tossed up on middle, skids onto Roach who misses that. Is there some bat though? Doesn't look like it. Remember, the onfield decision is out. It just has to clip the leg stump for the win. Roach was looking to defend but the ball sneaks past his inside edge. And, it is clipping. That will be it. Sri Lanka complete a 72-run win and win the series 2-0. . 171/10
Dilruwan Perera2043711.85962000
34.4 to MN Samuels, is he taken? Mathew claims it. Fullish outside off, going on with the arm and takes the outside edge. The soft signal from the umpire is out. Quicker and the ball skids on, takes the outside edge and carries low to his right. It seems to have gone in cleanly to his right hand but bounced back, but has it bounced into his other hand or grounded? Is there enough evidence to overturn the soft signal? Very close call. And the umpire thinks Mathews has fingers under the ball. Samuels' struggle against SL continues and WI lose another. 97/3
Milinda Siriwardana1312531.92590000
25.5 to SD Hope, excellent turn and flight. Pitches on off, Hope runs at the bowler again but the ball rips past Hope's outside edge and Kusal whips the bails off. Beautiful bowling, the slowness was responsible for the turn.. 80/2
37.2 to J Blackwood, given! Was that drifting down leg? Blackwood reviews immediately. Tossed up on leg and skids on to Blackwood who looks to flick, but he misses. Is there some bat? Doesn't look like there is. Right in front of leg stump and all 'reds' on the review. Blackwood goes. And WI lose another. 102/4
56.1 to JO Holder, gone! Absolutely plumb. Holder goes back and tries to work that to the leg side but that one skidded on and hit Holder right in front. Holder walks off, doesn't even think of a review. Just a bit short which got him looking to play against the turn but the ball came in a bit too quickly for Holder to adjust. 133/7
