Sri Lanka wrapped up a crushing 57-run win over a home side West Indies in Barbados after Mahela Jayawardene’s sublime unbeaten 98 from 56 balls took them to 195 for 3.
Jayawardene took full toll of a shambolic West Indian fielding performance in a 166-run partnership for the second wicket with Kumar Sangakkara – the highest of the tournament so far – and when Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Chris Gayle fell early in West Indies’ chase, the fight went from their batsmen.
Mendis and Malinga took 3 wicket each and bundled West Indies for 138-8 in 20 over`s.
Sri Lanka 195/3 (20/20 over`s)
West Indies 138/8 (20.0/20 over`s)
