Birmingham: Jun 4, 2013
 
West Indies managed to complete a 17-run victory as they bowled out Sri Lanka for 280 runs in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 warm-up tie at Birmingham on Tuesday.
 
Though the Lankans kept abreast of the run-rate, the West Indian bowlers managed to strike at regular intervals.
 
Kumar Sangakkara top-scored with 56 runs, while the rest of the batsmen failed to capitalise on their starts. The lower order managed to stretch the game with Nuwan Kulasekara and Dilhara Lokuhettige scoring 40 and 42 respectively. Lokuhettige used the long handle to increase the run rate. However, it was too much to ask for the tail-enders.
 
Earlier, the West Indies posted a total of 297 runs for the loss of six wickets.
 
The Caribbean openers Chris Gayle and Johnson Charles took little time to get into action with an 87-run first wicket partnership in just 12 overs. Gayle though was subdued while Charles played the role of aggressor.
 
Gayle was dismissed by Thisara Perera for 22. Charles too fell in the next over for Shaminda Eranga scoring 58 runs which consisted of nine hits to the fence. Marlon Samuels was dismissed for 18 runs by Tillakaratne Dilshan.

At 122 for three, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Darren Bravo stitched a valuable partnership to take West Indies to a respectable total. Sarwan (55) and Bravo (71) both left the field retired hurt to allow the other batsmen to spend some time at the crease.
 
West Indies will play their first match of the Champions Trophy against Pakistan on June 7, while Sri Lanka will take on New Zealand at Cardiff on June 9.
