Rain wins the first session in the 2nd test between Sri Lanka and West Indies

If there are two things that you are definitely guaranteed in Sri Lanka it is lots of spin and rain. Though West Indies have no idea how to encounter the former, there is nothing one can do about the later. The second test between Sri Lanka and West Indies has been interrupted by rain. After being outplayed in the first test, West Indies will be looking to come back into this game. However, considering their spin-woes at the sub-continent, one would be inclined to rule the visitors out of the context and expect this to be another easy victory for the lankans. However, this West Indian team is known to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat every now and then. So will it be another old fable or a new inspired comeback. Well, that remains to be seen.
