SL batsmen struggle

 
Bad light and rain curtailed play after only eight balls in the final session. Just 37.2 overs were possible in the day.

The West Indies fast bowlers made full use of the pitch and conditions to capture three cheap wickets for 34 runs before skipper Kumar Sangakkara (25) and Thilan Samaraweera (26) put a stop to the rot with an unbroken partnership of 50 for the fourth wicket.
