Dynamic opening batsman Chris Gayle missed out a unique World batting record as the touring West Indies team continued their dominance over Sri Lanka on day two of the opening Test match which continued at the Galle International Stadium yesterday.
On a day of high drama where several batting records were shattered Chris Gayle stood firm and solid at the crease as he reached an epic 333 which helped the West Indies to score a massive 580 for 9 in their first innings.
Sri Lanka in reply lost opener Tillekeratne Dilshan in the second over of the innings before skipper Kumar Sangakkara joined Tharanga Paranavithana to reach 54 for 1 when bad light halted play early.
