Kraigg Brathwaite batted resolutely and rain curtailed final session's play that helped West Indies to draw the second Test of the 3-match series against Sri Lanka at Gros Islet.
 

Chasing a record 4th innings total of 297 to win, the home team was on 147 for 5, when rain and bad light forced the umpires to stop play with 32.3 overs remaining in the day.
 
Brathwaite consumed 172 balls in his painstaking knock, which included only 6 fours.
 
Sri Lanka began the series-leveling hunt in a positive manner as Kasun Rajitha sent back Devon Smith (01) and Kieran Powell (02) within the first 4 overs of the innings.
 
The total became 4 for 64 after Rostan Chase (13) and Shane Dowrich (08) were removed by Suranga Lakmal and Akila Dananjaya respectively.
 
Then Shai Hope who returned to the pavilion after he was hit by Lahiru Kumara, came back and resurrected the innings with a 53-run 5th wicket stand with Brathwaite.
 
Hope faced 115 balls for his knock of 39.
 
Batting first Sri Lanka made 253 and in reply, the home team totalled 300.
 
The visitors totalled 342 in their second essay with Kusal Mendis top scoring with 87.
 
Shannon Gabriel who bagged 13 wickets in the match, a Windies record was adjudged the man-of-the-match.
