West Indies beat Sri Lanka by 25 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match T20I series.


Opener Lendl Simmons slammed unbeaten 67 off 51 deliveries while quick-fire knocks from all-rounder Andre Russell and captain Kieron Pollard took Windies to 196/4 in 20 overs.

In reply, Kusal Perera hit his 12th T20I fifty but Oshane Thomas scalped a five-wicket haul in the powerplay overs to guide the visitors to victory.


Earlier, Pollard became the first player in the history of T20 cricket to feature in 500 matches.

Chris Gayle takes the third spot in the illustrious list as he has featured in 404 T20 matches.
