WI vs SL 2nd Test, Day 2: Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjay de Silva battle after Kraigg Brathwaite ton

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.
