The West Indies have a record of 224-9, 162 points behind Sri Lanka, when the third day of the first test was shortened by the continuous drizzle on Tuesday.
Only 38 games were played and most of the two games were lost.
The West Indies recovered Sri Lanka’s 386 points with a score of 113-6 and bounced back in the morning through overnight batters Kyle Meyers and Jason Holder, who added 50 points to their partnership .
Before Meyers was captured by Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne with 45 points from spinning machine Dhanajaya de Silva, they played a total of 63 field.
Holder was out with 36 points and was caught by Dushmantha Chameera on the left arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama, giving the visitors a 175-8 lead.
Rakheem Cornwall and Joshua da Silva led the West Indies to lunch, but in the next fifth game, Cornwall mistakenly pulled Suranga Lakmal’s short ball and pushed it to the square leg.
He scored a valuable 39 of 58 goals, of which there were five boundaries and one over midwicket’s 6 goals, thus increasing the team’s 200.
Cornwall and Da Silva have a total score of 49, which is the second best partner of their team.
The rain came at that moment and did not really leave, but the referee waited 3 1/2 hours.
More rain is expected on the fourth and fifth days. If the game resumes, Sri Lanka can score a new goal.
Da Silva did not get out of 70 goals, and Jeremy Solozano is the next person to make his debut.
Spinners Praveen Jayawickrama and Ramesh Mendis each took three wickets.
