Sri Lanka took control of the ongoing first Test against West Indies after the visiting batters displayed a lacklustre performance on Day 2 at the Galle International Stadium.
At stumps, the Windies were on 113/6 with the visitors still trailing by 273 runs.
For West Indies, Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers are currently unbeaten at the crease.
After bundling out Sri Lanka for 386, Windies got off to a steady start as openers Jermaine Blackwood and Kraigg Brathwaite put on 46 runs on the board.
However, Sri Lanka stormed right back into the contest with two quick wickets of Blackwood and Nkrumah Bonner reducing the visitors to 51/2.
Braithwaite, who top scored with 41, tried his best to survive but his reign ended in the 32nd over as he was sent back to the pavilion by Ramesh Mendis.
The Windies innings further went into a slump as Shai Hope and Jomel Warrican departed cheaply.
Earlier, resuming Day 2 on 267/3, Sri Lanka did not manage to show the same resistance as the opening day and the hosts kept on losing wickets at regular intervals.
Once Dimuth Karunaratne, who made 147 was sent back, what followed was a procession and in the end, the hosts were bowled out for 386.
For West Indies, Roston Chase returned with five wickets.
