West Indies made a sluggish start to the opening Test today after opener Dimuth Ka-ru-na-rat-ne stroked his third Test hundred to put Sri Lanka on top on day one at the Galle International Stadium.

Asked to bowl first, the Caribbean side was kept in the field the entire day as Sri Lanka finished on 250 for two, with the left-handed Ka-ru-na-rat-ne stroking an unbeaten 135.

He was partnered at the close by Dinesh Chandimal who was on 72 not out, the pair having so far shared a third wicket stand of 149.
