Rahkeem Cornwall News
Left hanging on 99 overnight, West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite completed his ninth Test century to place his team in a strong position at stumps on the second day of the second Test against Sri Lanka. Brathwaite needed only two balls at the start of the day to reach his first century since July 2018. Brathwaite was the 16th player in test history to be stranded on 99 overnight and he maintained a streak as all 16 have been converted into hundreds. Brathwaite's 103-run eighth-wicket partnership with Rahkeem Cornwall helped the West Indies to 354 as it batted first after losing the toss. At stumps, Sri Lanka was 136-3, 218 runs behind. We take a look at best of the action from the second day's play of the second Test between Sri Lanka and West Indies.
West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite led from the front on Monday (March 29) as he scored an unbeaten 99 to help the West Indies to 287/7 at close on the first day of the second Test against Sri Lanka. An unbeaten 65-run partnership with Rahkeem Cornwall handed the impetus to the hosts after the battle between the two teams had see-sawed through the day. We take a look at a rollercoaster opening day through these collection of pictures.
West Indies were in trouble in their reply after starting the day on 13 without loss. Lakmal (5/45) had skipper Kraigg Brathwaite caught by Dhananjaya de Silva at second slip for three. Lakmal’s ability to get the ball to move both ways was again perfectly illustrated as Jermaine Blackwood was bowled by an in-swinger for two, before Holder got an inside edge and had his stumps rattled on 19.
