The West Indies managed to get on top of the game in the second Test against Sri Lanka at Galle International Stadium even as rain spoiled the last day of the second day of the match. Its openers and also the two most experienced batters in the side, skipper Kraugg Brathwaite and vice-captain Jermaine Blackwood steered the team past the 50 run mark without the loss of any wicket. 

Blackwood eventually got out becoming the first and only Windies casualty on the day even as Brathwaite and Bonner saw it throw until the rain came and never went away. Blackwood was out for 44 off 99 balls while at the time of stoppage of play, Brathwaite remained unbeaten on 22 off 71 balls and Bonner had just opened his account. Praveen Jayawickrama was the lone wicket-taker for the Lankan unit. 

Earlier in the day, West Indian spinners scurried through the Sri Lankan batting order as they dismissed the nine Sri Lankan batters for only 65 runs as the Lankan Lions collapsed from 139-1 t0 204 all out. Veerasammy Permaul picked five wickets whale Jomel Warrican picked four. Roston Chase picked one wicket as well to make it an all spin affair as far as taking Sri Lankan wickets was concerned.
