West Indies took up where they left off in the limited-overs series to dominate Sri Lanka on Day 1 of the first Test at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. New captain Kraigg Brathwaite won the toss and opted to bowl first, but it was his predecessor Jason Holder who did the talking, well with the ball as the Windies dismissed the visitors for a paltry 169 in 69.4 overs. Holder claimed a fifer (5/27 in 17.4 overs) even as Lahiru Thirimanne waged a lone battle with a stubborn 70 off 180. Veteran Kemar Roach claimed three wickets. At the draw of bails, Brathwaite and John Campbell were unbeaten on 3 off 36 and 7 off 44 runs respectively. Catch Day 1 highlights of the first WI vs SL Test match here:
