Match 1 Report: West Indies beat Sri Lanka by 226 runs on Sunday in the first cricket Test with the tourists always struggling to pull off a record run chase on the final day.

Resuming on 176-3, Sri Lanka needed 277 more runs for an unlikely win but lasted only 30 more overs and was all out for 226 as it collapsed from 218-5 at Queen's Park Oval.

Kusal Mendis was leading Sri Lanka's ambitious push at an unprecedented 453 runs for victory and was 94 not out at the start of Day 5. But Mendis could add only eight runs before he was caught behind off Shannon Gabriel for 102 with 10 fours and two sixes.
