PALLEKELE, Sri Lanka (CMC):

West Indies A produced another clinical performance to crush Sri Lanka A by a massive 333 runs on yesterday's final day of the second four-day Test, and square their three-match series at 1-1.

The Caribbean side bundled out the hosts for a meagre 147 in their second innings, an hour after lunch at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, to complete a dominant outing and make amends for their seven-wicket defeat in the first Test in Colombo last week.

West Indies A were propelled by their trio of seamers as Delorn Johnson (2-13), Kemar Roach (2-24) and Keon Joseph (2-30) all picked up two wickets apiece while left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai claimed two for 33.

Scores: West Indies A 509 for nine decl. and 216 for three decl; Sri Lanka A 245 and 147.
