News Americas, Colombo, Sri Lanka, Tues. Oct. 27, 2015:  The West Indies cricket squad were forced to swallow another loss Tuesday after having the win in sight but losing by just over 70 runs.

The West Indies, who lost the first Test in Galle by an innings and six runs, looked in control – holding nine wickets in hand and needing 244 to win the second test match against Sri Lanka in Colombo.

But Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath and spin partner Milinda Siriwardana ended the Windies hope by bowling them all out for 171 to had their side the win.

Sir Lanka’s win in Colombo now means it’s won the two match test series 2-0.

West Indies had lost the first Test in Galle by an innings and six runs.

The two teams will next meet in three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 games.
