After post-toss rain delayed the start of play, the players have finally taken the field. More interruptions are expected through the day, but let’s hope for the best.
Sri Lanka have won the toss and elected to bat. Sri Lanka have made as many as four changes to their side. Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Gamage have been ruled out while Rangana Herath and Dilruwan Perera have been left out.
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal(c), Roshen Silva, Niroshan Dickwella(w), Mahela Udawatte, Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara
Windies (Playing XI): Kraigg Brathwaite, Devon Smith, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich(w), Jason Holder(c), Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach, Miguel Cummins, Shannon Gabriel
The toss has been delayed due to rains. Overcast conditions were predicted for today, and this is no surprise.
Hello and welcome to the second Test between Windies and Sri Lanka. After having hammered the visitors by 226 runs in the first Test, Windies are an upbeat unit. Not in a long time have they faced a Sri Lankan side that has come with such a weak challenge. The battle now moves to St Lucia. Can Sri Lanka turn things around or will the hosts continue their domination?
