Pathum Nissanka crafted a gritty 66 and also stitched together a crucial partnership of 78 with Dhananjaya de Silva to help Sri Lanka plump the lead to 102 at Lunch on Day 4 of the Galle Test against West Indies. Dhananjaya de Silva was the more aggressive of the two. The middle-order batter was quick on his feet against the spinners as he used the depth of the crease to employ the cut. He also showcased his wristwork by nailing the whips while facing Jomel Warrican.
