Decent days cricket from SL

Despite the tumble of wickets in the afternoon, SL did what was required for the day which was to aim 450+ and get a couple of wickets although the key pair are at the wicket now. Lost count how many catches the Windies dropped so its a tad dissappointing that despite all the dropped catches we managed a slump. Great to see two of the younger players make big hundreds and put on a huge partnership.

I wasnt sure what SL were doing after tea and this happens too often. 450 on the board and Anji out first ball after tea and despite having Kusal at the wicket, we crawled around at less than 2 runs an over for the next 10. I just dont understand what we are thinking - are we playing for a draw! This happened in the last series too - aimless batting when the initiative was there for the taking. The call of the day was to bat quickly to may be get to 500 and get the Windies in ASAP. Instead we ambled along and even #10 got a bat but still didnt get to 500. It's like some of us arent aware of what is going on or missing that instinct to win.
