WI stranglehold on Sri Lanka
For the first time in five years, West Indies have forced a team to followon in a Test match.
The Caribbean boys claimed a first innings lead of 202 on the fourth day of the first Test against Sri Lanka at the Galle International Stadium yesterday.
Two of the men behind it were off-spinner Shane Shillingford and fast bowler Kemar Roach.
Shillingford grabbed four wickets and Roach three to help dismiss the hosts for 378 in reply to West Indies’ 580 for eight declared.
Sri Lanka reached 89 without loss in their second turn at the crease, leaving West Indies with an outside chance of pressing for victory on the final day.
