Scoring 204 after winning the toss on Saturday and electing to bat at Kensington Oval, Gabriel, Roach and Holder shared all five wickets on a rain-hit day in which only 59 overs were bowled. Holder led the West Indian batsmen with 74 in their first innings.

Sri Lanka, who are 105 runs behind, had Niroshan Dickwella on 13 at the close and Roshen Silva 3 not out. Danushka Gunathilaka scored 29 to lead the Sri Lanka batsmen before being trapped lbw by Holder.

Sri Lanka are playing without suspended captain Dinesh Chandimal, who lost his appeal over a ball-tampering charge during the drawn second Test in St. Lucia.

The historic first day-night Test in the West Indies is the third and final one in the series which West Indies leads 1-0. The home side won the first Test by 226 runs at Port of Spain.
