West Indies drew with Sri Lanka
For his match-saving ton, Nkrumah Bonner has been named the Man of the Match. That is it from this game! Both sides seemed to have had the game in their bag at one stage or the other but over the course of 5 days, there was nothing to separate the two sides. All to play now in the second and final Test of the series. The last game of the series begins on Monday, 29th March. The action will begin at 1000 local (1400 GMT). We hope to see you then. Till then, goodbye and take care!
West Indies were down and out but managed to claw things back with the ball in the final session of Day 4. 3 wickets each for Cornwall and Roach. First they managed to bowl out Sri Lanka. The hosts then did not start off well with the bat as they lost Campbell early. Bonner and Brathwaite first saw off Day 4 without further damage. Though the skipper departed in the first session of the final day. Bonner stuck like glue. He built a vital partnership with Mayers and then a game-saving one with Holder. The Jamaican showed his caliber and scored his maiden ton at a crucial time. That was good enough for the hosts to save the game. Sri Lanka toiled hard but there was nothing on the wicket though.
Sri Lanka then proceeded to win the days 3 and 4 as first on the back of Lakmal's 5-fer they kept West Indies at bay and then put up a chalk and cheese performance with the bat as compared to the first innings. The visitors were a completely different side with the bat in the second innings. A brilliant century on debut from Pathum Nissanka was the star of the show. Dickwella and Oshada Fernando both got dismissed in the 90s with the former missing out on his maiden Test ton by 4 runs. That solid show saw them put on a huge total of 476.
A quick summary of the game then! West Indies won the toss and put the tourists in to bat. The hosts dominated the first 2 days of the Test as they first bundled out Sri Lanka for 169 on the back of a 5-fer from Jason Holder and 3-fer from Roach. The hosts then took a lead of 102. It was not an easy task for them with the bat in the first innings as few players got starts but could not convert it. A solid stand between Rahkeem Cornwall and Joshua Da Silva ensured a solid lead. With the former scoring his maiden Test fifty.
The players are shaking hands now and that will be the end of this Test. A fantastic game of Test cricket. A game that kept going from one way to another but in the end, a draw seems to be a fair result as both sides did not deserve to lose as there was nothing to separate them at the end of a solid 5 days of Test cricket.

DRINKS! Looks like we are heading for a draw unless West Indies throw this away and have a monumental collapse. A West Indies win is now certainly out of the picture. The Sri Lankan bowlers have toiled hard but this has just been a paradise for batting. A few odd ones are keeping a bit low but there are no certain demons on this pitch for the batters.

FOUR! HUNDRED FOR NKRUMAH BONNER! His maiden in Test cricket. A knock he will remember forever! This has come at a very crucial time as well. Sri Lanka were on top before the West Indies innings started but Bonner has shown, patience, calmness, mental toughness, stamina, and technique to achieve this milestone. Take a bow, Bonner! Relatively young in his Test career and he has already shown his caliber. He removes his helmet, looks towards the heaven, raises his bat as his teammates applaud his brilliant knock. He gets to his milestone in style! Full ball outside off, Bonner drives it through covers and gets his century.

Blackwood looks to clip it to the leg side but the ball hits the inside half of his bat, then the pads, and then goes onto hit the poles.

Vishwa Fernando To Nkrumah Bonner
NOT OUT! Umpire's call on wicket's hitting the stump and Bonner's hope for a maiden Test ton stays alive by mere inches. Good length ball pitching outside off. It comes back in with pace. Bonner looks to defend but misses it due to the extra pace and movement. It hits his front pad, just around the knee roll. The Sri Lankan players put in a huge appeal but umpire Joel Wilson shakes his head. Dimuth Karunaratne has a word with his players and decides to signal the 'T'. Replay roll in and there is clear daylight between bat and ball so the T.V. umpire goes straight to the Ball Tracker. Time for the Ball Tracker and it shows that the ball hits the top of leg pole. But it does not hit enough to change the on-field call. Sri Lanka retain their review but Bonner survives.
Review time! LBW appeal against Nkrumah Bonner has been turned down by the on-field umpire. Dimuth Karunaratne though has decided to put his sole review on the line.

Lasith Embuldeniya To Kyle Mayers OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! What a start to the final session for Sri Lanka! Lasith Embuldeniya has struck gold in the very first over of the final session of this game. We have seen wickets crumble in the last session of the day and this game continues to amaze us. Flighted delivery outside off, Mayers goes for a glorious drive through covers. The ball though turns a fraction and catches the outside edge of Mayers' willow. It goes quickly to Lahiru Thirimanne at slip. He fumbles initially but manages to hold on to the catch. The 105-run stand is broken and not the start West Indies would have wanted.

Short and on the pads to begin the session. Mayers looks to flick but misses. The ball hits his pad and goes to the leg side.
We are back for the final session of the game! The Sri Lankan players are out on the field taking their respective position. Nkrumah Bonner and Kyle Mayers stride out to resume their innings. 5 overs remain for the second new ball. Lasith Embuldeniya will start the session with the ball.
... Day 5, Evening Session ...
So West Indies need 194 runs in the final session to seal another historic chase. Sri Lanka need to keep believing though there is no help off the pitch. The new ball will be available shortly in the final session but they also need to be aware that the new ball can go for runs. The majority of the damage has happened in the final session so that is something to keep an eye on too. Is there a twist in the tale? Join us for the final session to find out.
Monty Desai, West Indies batting coach, is down for an interview. He says that he is happy with the team's performance. Adds that their batters have shown discipline and they can bat well. Mentions that Test cricket is occupying longer periods and the batsmen have done well to apply themselves. Further says that they are not going for the win and will look to save the Test match. Credits Sri Lanka for bowling well.
An excellent session for West Indies. The pair of Bonner and Mayers have done a fabulous job and extended their partnership to 103. They have safely negotiated the afternoon session without any damage. We saw no wickets falling in the afternoon session on Day 3, Day 4, and now on Day 5 as well. Sri Lanka have not been poor but have not found any success. A draw seems the most likely outcome here but one can never be sure.

DRINKS! West Indies continue to show fight. A win from here looks very unlikely for the hosts but they are well on their way to saving this game. Bonner has continued his brilliance while Kyle Mayers has supported him diligently. Sri Lanka have been unable to regularly chip away with wickets as Kraigg Brathwaite's ve had today so far has been the only success today.

NOT OUT! The review saves Nkrumah Bonner! Thanks to technology he will continue to fight. Superb delivery from Embuldeniya. Bowls the round-arm actioned delivery and pitches it around off. It is in the channel of uncertainty. Bonner looks to defend and leans forward. The ball though straightens up after hitting the deck. It goes past the outside edge and straight to Dickwella. The Sri Lankan players go up in a confident appeal. Umpire, Joel Wilson takes his time but then raises his finger. Straightaway Bonner reviews it. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows no spike as the ball goes past the bat. Bonner survives and there is an audible applause from his teammates.
Review! Big, big moment in this game. Nkrumah Bonner has been given caught behind but he has opted to review it straightaway, indicating no bat. Let's see what the replays have to say.

We are all set to begin the second session of Day 5. The Sri Lanka players are out in the middle. Kyle Mayers and Nkrumah Bonner will resume their batting for West Indies. Suranga Lakmal will start the proceedings for this session.
... Day 5, Session 2 ...
So a West Indies win now looks highly improbable as they need 284 in the final two sessions. They need to continue to work hard if they are to save this Test. Sri Lanka will hope the bowlers can find some inroads in the second session and take the lead in this series. Join us for a very crucial post Lunch session to find out which way the Test shapes out.
The pair of Kraigg Brathwaite and Nkrummah Bonner showed great patience and resilience. The duo were calm in their approach but also taking runs when they were on offer. That resistance was broken by Lasith Embuldeniya around 25 minutes before the break. Since then the visitors have been very tight and disciplined. Credit to Bonner and Mayers too as they too have showed patience in that period and managed to see off the session without any further damage. Bonner has been brilliant reaching his fifty as well.
A fantastic session of Test match cricket! West Indies will be happy to have lost just a wicket in this session. Though Sri Lanka would have wanted one more, that solitary wicket has seen the energy levels go up on the field.

Lasith Embuldeniya To Kraigg Brathwaite OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! The change of ends does the trick for Embuldeniya as he has given his side a big wicket and their first one of the day. It is the West Indies skipper, Kraigg Brathwaite who has been dismissed. Floated delivery on middle. Brathwaite comes down the track and looks to defend it away from his body hoping for some spin. No spin on this one as it just drifts and keeps straight off the deck. The ball keeps a tad low as well as it goes onto hit the stumps. The resistance, the partnership, and the fight is broken. Sri Lanka have finally struck in the first session of the final day.

DRINKS! A very safely negotiated hour of play by West Indies. The talk would have been to try and lose not more than a wicket in this session and so far so good from the hosts. Sri Lanka will need to keep their patience and hang in there. They though need to find a way to get at least a couple in the next hour. If not that at least find a way to break this stand.

Suranga Lakmal To Kraigg Brathwaite
Huge appeal for caught behind off the first ball but the umpire is unmoved. Lakmal starts with a pacy ball but down the leg side. Kraigg Brathwaite looks to flick but loses his balance. The ball clips something and goes to Dickwella. The keeper and rest of the Sri Lankan players go up in huge appeal but the umpire is unmoved. Dimuth Karunaratne looks around for someone to confidently tell him to take it upstairs. No such voices to be heard so no review.
We are all set for the action to begin! The two umpires have made their way out to the middle. The Sri Lankan players have followed them out to the field and will take their respective positions in the field. Skipper, Kraigg Brathwaite walks out with Nkrumah Bonner to resume their innings. Suranga Lakmal to bowl the first over of the day.
START DELAYED! There was some drizzle early in the morning but that has gone away. The covers are off and the umpires are out in the middle inspecting the outfield. It is very breezy at the moment. Looks like there is some issue as umpire Joel Willson is having a word with Dimuth Karunaratne.  There is certainly going to be a delay but looks like it will be a brief one. PLAY WILL START AT 1015 local (1415 GMT). So it will be a 15-minute delayed start!
Pitch Report - Daren Ganga is down with the pitch report. He says that the spinners will get help on this pitch as there is bounce on this pitch. Sir Curtly Ambrose says that the seamers will get help as there is lot of bounce in this pitch for them.
Mickey Arthur, Sri Lanka coach, says that Lasith Embuldeniya has bowled well. Adds that the bowlers would look to keep it tight and go for the wickets. Mentions that they will have to beat the outside edge and the inside edge.
Kraigg Brathwaite, West Indies skipper, says they will take this game session by session. Adds that the pitch is good to bat and Sri Lanka have bowled well. Mentions that they will look to bat well today.
Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the first Test between West Indies and Sri Lanka. The game is evenly poised heading into the final day as all three results are possible. West Indies need 341 more runs to win, which will be difficult but the hosts had achieved something familiar against Bangladesh recently. Sri Lanka have made a brilliant comeback in this Test and they'll look to complete the turnaround. The tourists need 9 wickets to seal the game. We are in for a cracker of a day. Stay tuned for further updates.
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
So all three results are a possibility heading into the final day. West Indies need 341 runs to seal another incredible chase. Sri Lanka need 9 wickets to win the Test and complete a brilliant comeback. Join us on Thursday, 25th March for the final day of this exciting Test. The action will begin at 1000 local (1400 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!
The star of the day, Pathum Nissanka is caught for a chat. Nissanka says that that he is not aware of the records but he is happy to have performed for his team. Adds that the discussion was to take the game with the bat as long as deep as possible. States that he feels that if the bowlers bowl it in the right areas, they have a good chance to bowl West Indies out.
It was a tough day for West Indies. They though will be happy that they managed to see off the day with 9 wickets still in hand. The bowlers had to toil hard in the first two sessions but the hosts crawled their way back in the final session of the day. They are still chasing the tails of this game but they will be looking at their recent magnificent chase at Chattogram and would be looking to repeat the feat and taking a lot of inspiration from that very chase. They have a lot of batting to come and if the past has taught us one thing, it is to never discount West Indies.
The visitors showed their mettle with the bat. Though they lost the plot with the bat in the first half of the evening session, they managed to post a superb total of 476. That came on the back of a tremendous partnership between Nissanka and Dickwella. The pair added a mammoth 179-run stand with the debutant scoring a century and Dickwella agonizingly missing out on his maiden ton by 4 runs. Wickets fell like nine pins in the last session but the tourists had got enough on the board by then. Sri Lanka then managed to do some damage with the ball too. Though they would have liked at least one more, they will be happy with the fact that they did see the back of John Campbell.
Fantastic day of Test cricket and all three results are possible but without a shadow of a doubt, the day belonged to Pathum Nissanka, Niroshan Dickwella, and Sri Lanka. West Indies looked down and out but they have clawed their way back in this and ensured that we have an enthralling Day 5!

Vishwa Fernando To John Campbell
NOT OUT! Missing the stumps! Short of a length ball around off, Campbell looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the pads. Sri Lanka put up a huge appeal for LBW but the umpire is unmoved. Sri Lanka take the review. The Ultra Edge shows nothing while the Ball Tracker shows that it is missing the stumps.
A desperate cry for LBW has been turned down by the on-field umpire. Dimuth Karunaratne though has decided to back his bowler and go for the review.

Who will share the new ball with Suranga Lakmal? Vishwa Fernando has been tasked to operate from the other end.
