No play on Day 4 due to rain
Colombo, Sri Lanka – Heavy rain washed out the fourth day of the 2nd ERI Test between Sri Lanka and West Indies at the R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium. The rain, which has plagued the match, started Thursday evening and continued all day on Friday and prevented any play. There are also doubts of play on Saturday's final day.
Almost 200 overs have now been lost in the match due to a combination of rain and bad light. Play is due to start at 9.45am on Saturday (12.15 am Eastern Caribbean Time/11.15 pm Friday Jamaica Time) and a minimum of 98 overs are slated.
West Indies are due to resume on 165-5, with Dwayne Bravo on one not out and Carlton Baugh on four not out. Darren Bravo has so far topscored with 80 off 129 balls, with five boundaries and four sixes. They are replying to Sri Lanka’s 387-9 declared. Kemar Roach took 5-100 – to move to 10 wickets in the series.
The first Test at the Galle International Stadium ended in a draw. The third and final Test at Pallekele in Kandy starts on December 1.
