A landslide victory in the first Test against the West Indies puts them at the top of the ICC Test Championship points table. Sri Lanka won by 187 runs. Batting first, the West Indies were all out for 160 in the second innings.
Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne won the toss and elected to bat. Ramesh Mendis took seven wickets and Lasith Empuldenia five. At the same time, Sri Lanka came first in the points table after winning only one match. But despite a series against England, India are second in the points table.
India have two wins, one loss and a draw. The fifth Test to determine the series winners has not taken place. This is a setback for India. With that, Sri Lanka came first in the points table after playing one match. Pakistan, West Indies and England are next in line. India’s Test series against New Zealand is in progress. The winner of the series will not be announced for the time being as England have postponed the final match of the series.
The match was postponed as India were leading 2-1. The winner will be announced only after the final Test is played. The current report is that the next match will be held next year. India will win the series even if the match is drawn or won. Then India itself will come first.
