SL beats Windies to draw Test series

Sri Lanka beat West Indies by four wickets in Barbados, winning a low-scoring third and final Test early on the fourth day to draw the series 1-1.

They are the first Asian team to win a Test at Bridgetown's Kensington Oval.

Chasing 144, Sri Lanka resumed on 81-5 and lost Kusal Mendis in the first over, bringing in Kusal Perera - who had been injured in a collision with an advertising board while fielding.

He and Dilruwan Perera added an unbroken 63 to see Sri Lanka home.

It was harsh on West Indies captain Jason Holder, who took 5-41 on his home ground - giving him match figures of 9-60 - after scoring 74 in the Windies' first innings, the highest individual score in the day-night match.
