West Indies ahead after rain-affected day in Antigua


West Indies made significant headway on a rain-affected third day of the second and final Test against Sri Lanka in Antigua on Wednesday.

Several overs were lost, and Sri Lanka, resuming on 136-3, ended the day on 250-8, trailing West Indies first inning score by 104 runs with just two wickets in hand. West Indies made 354.

Pathum Nissanka, who made a debut hundred in the first Test, is unbeaten on 49, while Dinesh Chandimal made 44 and Dhananjaya De Silva scored 39. Lahiru Thirimanne made 55 on day two.

Jason Holder (2-40) and Alzarri Joseph (2-64) are the main wicket-takers so far, while Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Kyle Mayers and Jermaine Blackwood have one each.

Weather permitting, play will start 30 minutes early on the final two days to make up for the overs lost on day three. The first Test ended in a draw.
