Sri Lanka had come into the series against West Indies in a state of flux, after having lost two home Test series in a year for only the second time.

However, they rallied to sweep West Indies 2- nil, after a 72-run win before tea on the final day of the second Test at the P Sara Oval, despite four sessions getting washed out.

Milinda Siriwardana, whose 68 in the first innings turned out to the top score in the match, picked up three wickets in the final innings to trigger the slide.

Sri Lanka's lead spinner Rangana Herath claimed four wickets to skittle the visitors, who began the day at 20 for 1, for 171.
