Presentation Quotes:
Sangakkara: 'The wicket was spongy yesterday and I had to be patient. I hung in there and I managed to slog away towards the end. The wicket was better today and scoring runs was easier. I rebuilt the innings and I had good support from Thirimanne, Mathews, Kulasekara and Senanayake. With the extra fielder in, it gives the bowlers less options and the advantage is firmly with the batsman.'
Kumar Sangakkara is the MoM for his unbeaten knock of 90.
Mathews: 'The guys showed a lot of character. There was some grass on the wicket and we had to get the runs. Sangakkara batted superbly and he held the innings together. We had a small team talk and with D/L rules, batting first is a disadvantage. The rain delays were frustrating but I am glad that we put the runs on the board. It feels good to be contributing to the team's cause.'
Pollard: 'We undid all the work we did yesterday. We did not bowl well. We had to bowl according to the plans but we did not execute it well. We conceded 30 plus extras and it is unacceptable. Simmons and Bravo got us back into the game after a poor start. But, the poor start put us behind the eight ball. Most batsmen, including myself, have not batted well.'
West Indies started off very slowly as Eranga and Mathews bowled with discipline. However, a 123 run stand between Simmons and Darren Bravo gave West Indies some hope with both batsmen notching up gritty half centuries. However, with their departures, West Indies fell behind but they ensured Sri Lanka did not concede the bonus point. Mathews was the star for Sri Lanka with 4/29 as his team performed admirably. Stay tuned for the presentation.
This win has kept the competition wide open. India will have to win over Sri Lanka so that they can qualify for the finals. Sri Lanka are more or less through to the finals but they will look to ensure that they do not slip up in a big way against India. West Indies will have to hope that India do not go past their net run-rate so that they can qualify for the finals.
