West Indies A stumbled on either side of a substantial fourth-wicket partnership betweenShamarh Brooks and Vishaul Singh to fold for 276 against the Sri Lanka A team at the Khettarama Stadium.

West Indies A were immediately put under pressure after opting to bat, as dropped Test openerRajendra Chandrika's poor form continued. He was trapped in front by Lahiru Kumara, who had spearheaded the Sri Lanka Under-19s pace attack on their recent tour to England.

Vishaul Singh (96) found himself doing the rescue act twice, coming in at 56 for 3 and putting on 125 for the fourth wicket with his captain Shamarh Brooks, before a second collapse led West Indies to losing three wickets for four runs.

Kemar Roach's unbeaten 45 was the only other notable contribution, as the Sri Lankans didn't let the batsmen settle. U-19 offspinner Charith Asalanka and allrounder Asela Gunaratne stood out for Sri Lanka A, taking two and three wickets. Chinaman bowler Lakshan Sandakan, who made his Test debut in the recently concluded series against Australia, bowled 28 overs but only managed to pick up one wicket.

Sri Lanka A openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera were unbeaten without scoring in the solitary over they faced before stumps.
