West Indies beat Sri Lanka by a massive 226 runs in the first Test of the 3-match series in Trinidad, yesterday.
 
Chasing 453 to win, the visitors, who began the 5th and final day on 176 for 3, were bowled out for 226 just after lunch.
 
Kusal Mendis made 102, his 5th Test century.
 
None of the other batsmen were clueless against the Windies bowlers in a pitch that was behaving in an uneven manner.
 
Roston Chase bagged 4 for 15.

West Indies:
First Innings - 414 for 8 dec. (Dowrich 125*, Kumara 4-95)
