Tharanga Paranavitana missed out on a century as the opening Test between Sri Lanka and the West Indies ended in a draw on the fifth and final day in Galle on Friday. The left-handed opener scored an impressive 95 as Sri Lanka reached 241-4 in their second innings at tea on the fifth and final day after following on 202 runs behind. The hosts are now 39 runs ahead with six wickets in hand. Thilan Samaraweera was unbeaten on 19 and Angelo Mathews was on five not out when tea was taken early due to rain. Paranavitana, dropped on 53, steered Sri Lanka to safety with a defiant 87-run stand for the third wicket with former captain Mahela Jayawardene, who batted patiently for his 58. The West Indies bowled well in the extended morning session, with paceman Kemar Roach grabbing two wickets off successive overs in a lively opening spell after the hosts had resumed at 89 for no loss. The tourists then struggled for success as Paranavitana and Jayawardene took no risks during their stand to boost their team's chances of drawing the match.
