Moratuwa, Sri Lanka – A patient century from Assad Fudadin kept the West Indies A on top on Day 1
of the 3rd and final “Test” against Sri Lanka A at the Tyronne Fernando Stadium.
After winning the toss and opting to bat, the opening pair of Kraigg Brathwaite and Fudadin put on 137 runs. Brathwaite struck 75 from 119 balls, hitting seven boundaries. But Fudadin would be the one to carry on.
