253&132 (56.1)
Sri Lanka beat West Indies by 164 runs
That is all we have from this series. Dimuth Karunaratne collects the trophy and his team joins him in celebration. The series ends 2-0 and Sri Lanka start the next WTC cycle with 24 points. We have plenty of cricketing action in the next couple of months and we hope that you keep us company. For now, you can switch tabs and join my colleagues as they cover the second Test between India and New Zealand which is underway in Mumbai. Switch tabs and enjoy that action. Cheers!
Dimuth Karunaratne, the skipper of Sri Lanka, says that before the series started, he was a bit worried but the team has done really well. Pathum Nissanka for the way he opened in this series and says that he has a bright future. Says that Oshada Fernando may not have the best of series with the bat but played an important role in the field. Credits Mickey Arthur and says that he was always supportive of the team when they struggled and wishes Arthur the best for his future. He ends by thanking the fans in the local language.
Kraigg Brathwaite, the skipper of West Indies, is up for a chat. He says that the batting in the first innings was very crucial for the side. He adds that he missed out on his century and maybe that could have been the difference in hindsight. He says that they got starts but were unable to capitalize on it. Mentions that the positives are the potential of the players. They have players to turn the game around, but he thinks as a batting unit, they will look to be more hungry and make sure to learn from this series.
Ramesh Mendis is the PLAYER OF THE SERIES! He says that he is pleased to bowl this well for his country and he is thankful for the support he got from the captain and the entire team. Adds that he thanks his coaches and says that he worked really hard in the last few years. Informs that he is more of a bowling all-rounder now but he wants to bat well for the team too.
Dhananjaya de Silva is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He says that he always believes in himself under pressure and he is glad he could perform for his side. Mentions that it was very tough as the ball was turning. Adds that they had to bat long and that was the plan. He ends by wishing good luck to Mickey Arthur and Grant Flower and thanking both of them.
Stay tuned for the presenatation.
Sri Lanka got off to a sloppy start, as they lost a couple of early wickets, both via run out towards the end of Day 3. They started off well on Day 4 though and were able to cut the deficit and were marching on their way to swell the lead. It was not easy and they found themselves in big trouble when there at 221-8. If not for Dhananjaya de Silva, the hosts could’ve been in a lot of trouble. But he anchored the innings really well with his 155*. He was supported well for the ninth-wicket stand by Lasith Embuldeniya. They both managed to tire out the bowlers and extended the lead to 296 runs. Such a big target was always going to be difficult for West Indies to chase down but they didn't even manage to play out for a draw and were bowled out within two sessions.
West Indies started quite well with the bat. Kraigg Brathwaite was at the heart of two important stands. He racked up a 62-run stand with Jermaine Blackwood and later stitched a partnership of 75 runs for the second wicket along with Nkrumah Bonner, but once this stand was broken, the wickets kept falling for the visitors. They could not negotiate the spin well. But a late stand between Kyle Mayers and Veerasammy Permaul made sure West Indies take back a decent lead with them of 49 runs before getting bowled out. Spin continued to dominate the game as Ramesh Mendis took 6 wickets. But the Windies had a handy lead.
In the first innings, after two sessions were lost due to rain on Day 1, Sri Lanka started off well. The opening stand of Dimuth Karunaratane and Pathum Nissanka flourished yet again in this series. The skipper got out after getting a start but Nissanka carried on and scored a fine fifty. The departure of the top order though resulted in a capitulation of the Sri Lankan middle order as they were bowled out for 204. Veerasammy Permaul was the start of the ball for West Indies as he took a 5-wicket while Jomel Warrican took 4 wickets.
But an over of Ramesh Mendis changed everything. The off-spinner took 3 wickets in a single over and rocked the middle order of West Indies. Only formalities were left after that as Ramesh Mendis and Lasith Embuldeniya each took their 5-wicket haul to finish the game right before the scheduled Tea break.
Sri Lanka did not bat much in the first session and declared after facing only a handful of overs. A target of 297 was a big one and it was clear that West Indies were looking to draw it. Kraigg Brathwaite fell quite early but Jermaine Blackwood and Nkrumah Bonner stitched a solid stand. The wicket of Blackwood just before Lunch was a big one for Sri Lanka. But Shai Hope joined Bonner and both of them were looking very solid in the middle. It looked like these two batters will bat till Tea at the very least.
Wow, what a show by Sri Lanka! The two spinners, Ramesh Mendis and Lasith Embuldeniya took 5 wickets each to demolish the batting order of West Indies. It is only apt that both of them lead their team out of the field. All smiles in the Sri Lankan camp!

DRINKS! West Indies were looking in control. Until, Mendis decided to work his magic and he picked up three wickets in a single over to put his side ahead. All Sri Lanka need is 5 more wickets to seal the series by a 2-0 margin. They will hope to pick a couple of wickets in the remaining session, to inch closer to the finish line. West Indies, on the other hand, would want Bonner and Holder to bat with grit and determination atleast till the Tea break.

NOT OUT! Bonner survives. Loopy ball, full and outside off. Bonner looks to drive it to the off side. The ball bounces off the fielder at silly point and lobs to the man stationed behind him. The fielder dives in front and collects the ball. The Sri Lankan players put in an appeal but the umpire is unmoved. The umpires converge and decide to take it upstairs. The replays show that the ball had bounced before coming in contact with the player. The final decision is not out.
Is that a catch? The soft signal is not out. Nope, the ball has bounced into the ground.

The second session is set to begin! The Sri Lanka players stride out to the middle. Followed by Nkrumah Bonner and Shai Hope, the new batter who walks out to bat for the visitors. Lasith Embuldeniya to complete his over.
... DAY 5, SESSION 2 ...
Right then. Both the teams have their task cut out. Will Sri Lanka get the 8 scalps or will West Indies survive the brutal spin attack? We will have a better idea of how this game will pan out, after the Lunch break. Do join us for the live action at 1240 local (0710 GMT).
The spinners are on top! Sri Lanka came out to bat at the beginning of Day 5. They faced three overs and declared just after Lasith Embuldeniya got bowled off Holder. Without any second thought, it was all spin for the hosts. Lasith and Mendis started from each end, but this time they were unable to cause any real threat. Mendis struck early on to get rid of the opposition skipper, Kraigg Brathwaite. But since then, they probed good lines and lengths but the batsmen were on top of it. But luckily for the hosts, Embuldeniya worked his magic and struck in the final over before Lunch to change the trajectory of the game.
West Indies began their day with the ball, but Holder scalped a wicket in the third over of the day and the hosts declared after that. 297 is what the visitors have to chase down in three sessions. Kraigg Brathwaite and Jermaine Blackwood came out with the bat, but the former slipped out early on. Then came a solid stand between Bonner and Blackwood, there was some miscommunication between the two, but they eluded the danger of getting run-out. But just as everything looked good for the visitors, Blackwood lost his track and gave away his wicket.
A breakthrough right at the stroke of Lunch changes everything. Sri Lankan camp will be confident going into the break and would look to tighten the nails in the next session. The visitors did really well, to recover from an early breakthrough, but to put salt on it, Blackwood got out just at the brink of Lunch.

Drinks! A pretty good start for West Indies despite losing Kraigg Brathwaite early. It looks like they are not going to go for the chase and just play for a draw. Sri Lanka need to be patient here and keep bowling in the right channels. A couple of quick wickets could be enough for them to have the game in their firm control.

OUT! LBW! Not sure why Kraigg Brathwaite reviewed that one! Full ball, lands on off and goes straight on. Kraigg Brathwaite looks to block inside the line of the ball and misses. The ball hits the pads and the finger is raised. The skipper of West Indies starts walking but then decides to review this. There is no bat on that, Ball Tracker has umpire's call on impact and wickets are hitting!
Review! Kraigg Brathwaite takes the review for lbw. The on-field decision is out. The UltraEdge shows no bat is involved. The Ball Tracker shows it is upmire's call on impact and the ball is hitting the stumps and with that the skipper, Kraigg Brathwaite, has to walk back.
