The Windies quicks also enjoyed plenty of support from the pitch as they managed to restrict Sri Lanka to a paltry first innings score of 154. Only 3 Sri Lankan batsmen managed to score over 15 with the highlight being Niroshan Dickwella’s 42 in 72 deliveries. Holder was once again the stand out bagging 4 wickets.
The hosts had a disastrous second inning as the Sri Lankan paceman were able to bundle them out for 93 runs. Stand in skipper Suranga Lakmal and Kasun Rajitha bagged 3 wickets a piece.Set a target of 144 for victory, Sri Lanka got off to a very shaky start losing their top 4 batsmen for just 50 runs. However a measured 63 run stand for the 7th wicket between Kusal Perera, who spent the last night in hospital due to an injury scare, and Dilruwan Perera guided the visitors to a 4 wicket victory.
Sri Lanka managed to level the series without the services of Angelo Mathews who returned to the country on a personal matter and Dinesh Chadimal who was suspended from the 3rd test for ball tampering. Jason Holder was named man of the match while Shane Dowrich was named the player of the series.
