So! A dead rubber ends in an interesting fashion. Neither side can qualify but at least both gave it their all. Tuesday, July 2, 2019 sees Bangladesh take on India at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Join us at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious Sri Lankan captain, Dimuth Karunaratne, says that these kinds of wins build a huge amount of confidence. Admits that in the earlier games, they put pressure on themselves and hence committed mistakes. In this one, he agrees that they played freely due to lack of pressure. Praises Avishka Fernando and wants his side to learn from him. Admits that the SA game was a must-win one but wants his side to play freely in the next game. On the bowling, Karunaratne says that the Lankans concentrated on keeping it tight, not conceding too many runs, which resulted in a couple of run outs. On Mathews bowling the 48th over, Dimuth says that he had to bowl 2 overs off the 5th bowler and was going to bowl one himself but says that Angelo Mathews himself came and said that he will bowl. On the question whether Angelo will bowl regularly, Karunaratne laughs it off, saying that he does not think Mathews will bowl much again.
West Indian skipper, Jason Holder, admits that the West Indies were slow off the blocks with both, bat and ball. Rues the fielding efforts throughout the tournament, letting key moments slip. Feels that 338 was about par on a wicket which was slow at times. Reckons that Pooran showed that if someone spent some time at the wicket, they could bat deep. On the Caribbeans doing well at the death with the ball, Holder praises his bowlers for coming back strongly. Tells that the team was backing itself when the Allen-Pooran stand was going on and is sad that they could not win. Agrees that this sort of play and this lot of youngsters are really promising and is happy with the attitude being shown. On their final game, Jason just wants a win through a complete performance.
AVISHKA FERNANDO HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He has a special translator in Kumar Sangakkara. Avishka says that when he went in, he was happy that he did what was required. Is delighted with the way they bowled and fielded and his knock has come in a winning cause. He is very happy to get the opportunities and wants to focus on developing his game.
Earlier in the day, a masterful century from Avishka Fernando took Sri Lanka to 338, with decent knocks from Kusal Perera and Lahiru Thirimanne. This win takes the Lankans above Bangladesh to 6th in the points table, with 8 points. However, they cannot qualify even if they beat India on Saturday. Please stay tuned for the presentation.
Nicholas Pooran then took the mantle upon himself and with 31 needed from the last 3 overs, Karunartane had to decide whom should he turn to, to bowl 2 remaining overs of the fifth bowler. He went with his most experienced player - Angelo Mathews. The bloke, who had not bowled since December 2017, struck gold on his very first ball, getting Pooran dismissed and that nipped the game in the bud. Malinga was the chief destroyer, with 3 wickets while the others, though not wicket-taking, were decent.
Pooran was involved in three successive 50-run stands, first with Holder, then Brathwaite and finally Allen. Comically, all the partnerships ended in a run out. Of all the three stands, it was the Pooran-Allen stand which injected some momentum into the chase. The 83-run stand came in just 58 balls and at that time, it seemed like West Indies had a chance. But his run out once again changed the tempo.
For a match which ran close, Sri Lanka always looked comfortable while defending. The top four batsmen did not contribute much for the Windies and neither scored at the rate they were expected to. At 84/4, it looked like we were in for a quick finish but Nicholas Pooran stepped up.
A close finish in the end. The run chase looked dead and buried in the 35th over, when Carlos Brathwaite got out but Nicholas Pooran almost single-handedly took his side home. Have to feel for the youngster but had he received some more support from the other end, the West Indies might have ended on the right side.

Angelo Mathews To Sheldon Cottrell
SRI LANKA WIN BY 23 RUNS! Dot ball to end things. Back of a length ball on off, Cottrell punches it from the crease but finds extra cover. The fielder stops it at the edge of the circle and the batsmen decide not to cross. That will be it. A hard-fought victory for Sri Lanka.

OUT! It is not close, it is out! West Indies are nine down now. Malinga gets his third. This lands around middle and leg. Thomas swings but misses. It goes off the pads towards third man. The batters run one as the bowler appeals. The umpire shakes his head. Kusal Perera suggests to review it and Dimuth Karunaratne obliges. Hawk Eye shows three reds and Thomas has to take the long walk back.
A huge appeal for an LBW has been turned down. Sri Lanka have reviewed. Looks close.

Angelo Mathews To Nicholas Pooran OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! What a masterstroke this is! Angelo Mathews who is bowling his first ball of this World Cup, forget the World Cup, his first ball after eternity, gets the batsman who had all the West Indies' hopes pinned on him. Mathews bowls it wide outside off, Pooran goes after it but the ball takes the outside edge and carries to Kusal Perera who makes no mistake. Mathews is pumped up and why not? He has probably won Sri Lanka the game. Pooran walks back dejected. What an innings from him but it would have been even more special had he taken his team over the line! West Indies need a miracle from here on.
Look who has the ball in his hand! The experienced head of Angelo Mathews has been given the ball by Dimuth Karunaratne. This is his first over of this World Cup. Watch out for his clever change in pace.

Lasith Malinga To Nicholas Pooran
DROPPED AND FOUR! That has been misjudged horribly. Has Thisara Perera, the sub, dropped the game? Well, we will find out. Malinga bowls it full and on off, Pooran lofts it towards long off. He has not got enough on it. Perera though runs in then realizes it is going over him. Looks to recover by moving back and by stretching his hands up. The ball bursts through and goes into the fence. Malinga is not impressed. Karunaratne is shaking his head. Massive moment, this.
Lasith Malinga is back into the attack. He has two vital overs up his sleeves. That's the game, to be honest.

Also, what a time to score your first ton, his team was down and out but his innings has brought them back. He needs to stay there right till the end though. This is fuller and on middle, Nicholas flicks it through mid-wicket for two.
Sheldon Cottrell walks out to the middle. He needs to hang in there with Pooran. That is his job.

Isuru Udana To Fabian Allen OUT!
OUT! Run out! Rihanna maybe in attendance but the song of Taylor Swift - 'Trouble, Trouble' is playing in my mind. Complete miscommunication here and yet another fifty stand is broken through a run out. A delivery down the leg side, Fabian flicks it towards short fine leg and Pooran wants to have a run in spite of the striker not showing much interest. Rajitha, in the meanwhile, picks up the ball and parries it to the bowler who does the rest. Not even in the frame, Fabian. He has sacrificed himself here. 57 needed off 35 balls.

Good fielding! A good shot too! This is full and outside off, it is the slower one. Pooran lofts it over the mid off fielder. It is not right off the middle. Mathews gives it a chase and pushes it back in. Three taken.
In comes Lasith Malinga into the attack. Four wickets left. He has two to his name. Can he finish things off and get a 5-fer?

Isuru Udana To Nicholas Pooran OUT!
OUT! It has brushed his fingers and Brathwaite is way out! Unfortunate end to his innings and once again a partnership which was starting to look good has been cut short. Udana bowls this fuller and on middle, Pooran strokes it back uppishly towards the bowler. Udana stretches his left hand out and tries to take the catch but the ball seems to have brushed his fingers and goes onto hit the stumps. He appeals and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show that CB is a goner. Not an innings to remember from Brathwaite and Pooran continues to run out of partners.
Has Udana got a touch there? If he has, Brathwaite is surely short and this could be a very unfortunate end to his innings.

Isuru Udana is back on! 4-0-18-0 so far.

A better throw and Brathwaite would have been a goner! This is outside off, Brathwaite swings but it goes off the outside edge to short third man. He sets off but is sent back. Mathews throws it off balance and hence, it is not a good one. Brathwaite gets back in time. So despite going for a biggie on the first ball, just 7 from it.

SIX! Welcome into the attack, Karunaratne! They have to make this a big over. Also, Pooran brings his fifty up in style. He holds the hope for West Indies. This is short and on off, it sits up to be hit. Pooran sends it sailing into the mid-wicket stand.
Drinks break. 167 needed off 108 balls with five wickets in hand. Nicholas Pooran and Carlos Brathwaite have the caliber to take this close and even win it but they need to be very careful with their shot selection. Carlos showed that against New Zealand and nearly took West Indies home that evening without much support from the other end. Sri Lanka are on top and just need to keep bowling tidy overs and wait for the mistakes. Let's see which way this chase heads now. It can be either down to the wire if these two last the distance or can end soon. Interesting move. Dimuth Karunaratne has decided to bowl, only the second time in his short ODI career he is doing so.

Stumping appeal is referred upstairs. Has Kusal Perera taken the bails off just in time? The replays find that though it was nice thinking from the keeper to wait before removing the bails, Holder's right leg never left the crease. He dragged it just a bit but had it nicely planted all the time.

Kasun Rajitha To Shimron Hetmyer OUT!
OUT! Run Out! This is disastrous. Back of a length ball on off, Hetmyer runs it down to the right of backward point. Shimron strokes it there and casually goes for the run. Pooran though looks that Dhananjaya has got to the ball quickly so he sends him back. But he is too late as Hetmyer is halfway down. De Silva takes his time, aims and hits the stumps. Hetmyer is nowhere in the frame and has to walk back dejected. Hetmyer's second run out in this tournament. He suffered the same fate against Australia and that time his partner was Shai Hope. West Indies slip further.

Kasun Rajitha To Nicholas Pooran
NOT OUT! Pooran is in but a big mix-up there. This is on middle, it is pushed towards the bowler who misfields. Pooran wants a run and rushes towards the other end. Hetmyer sends him back. The mid on fielder gets to the ball and fires it to the keeper who takes the bails off and appeals. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that Pooran is in.
An appeal for a run out has been taken upstairs. Pooran is the man in question. He seems relaxed.
Good learning from Kasun Rajitha. The ball before the wicket, which was hit for a six, was short. But the wicket ball was slightly fuller than that one. Good to see that the youngster learnt from his mistake and eventually got his man.

Drinks break. Nicholas Pooran is the new batsman out in the centre. West Indies going nowhere in this chase. They have been struggling to get the boundaries and now, with Gayle gone, the target looks even steeper. Sri Lanka have done really well, keeping the basics right and sticking to their belief. On course for a big win.

Kasun Rajitha To Chris Gayle OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! Gayle is out of here. Rajitha has the last laugh. The hopes of West Indies chasing this down have been dented big time. Not sure if this shot was needed having got a biggie on the last ball. This is on a length and around middle, Gayle looks to heave it across the line but only manages a top edge. It goes high up in the air towards backward point where Vandersay settles under it and takes it. Falls over after doing so. 268 needed in 208 balls.

Run out appeal has been referred upstairs! Also, the bowler is down in pain here as the ball after hitting the wickets at the non-striker's end deflects to catch Dhananjaya on the back of his right leg. Gayle looks to be safely in though in the replays.

Free Hit time!

Lasith Malinga To Shai Hope
NO BALL! That came out wrong! Malinga looks to bowl the slower dipping yorker. It comes out wrong though, it ends up being a high full toss on the body which Hope ducks under. Free Hit coming up. Sixth of the game.

Lasith Malinga To Shai Hope
On a good length and around off, Hope blocks it out.
Shai Hope is the new man in. 192 runs in this World Cup so far for him which includes a couple of fifties. West Indies require him to stand up today and deliver a big knock.

Lasith Malinga To Sunil Ambris OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Malinga has bounced Ambris out! Early wicket for the Lankans. Dreadful start for the Windies. Lasith bangs it short and around off, Ambris looks to pull but does not get on top of the bounce. It hits the top edge and goes into the gloves of Perera who makes no mistake. Another failure for Sunil.

Lasith Malinga To Chris Gayle

Dhananjaya de Silva To Chris Gayle
Beauty by the offie! Nice drift into the batsman, it's on a full length around off, Gayle draws forward in defense but it spins away to beat the outside edge and the off stump by less than an inch.

Dhananjaya de Silva To Chris Gayle
Everything happened in slow-mo! Fuller and around middle and leg, Gayle works it behind square leg and ambles back for the second run. The fine leg fielder took his own sweet time in releasing the throw back to the keeper.
Spinner from the other end! Dhananjaya de Silva to bowl with a slip and leg slip in place.

Lasith Malinga To Sunil Ambris
A very late decision to leave. Slower length ball outside off at 117 kph, Ambris is almost through his shot but then tries to pull his bat back. It goes very closely past the outside edge.

Lasith Malinga To Sunil Ambris
Very full and on off, Sunil tries to drive but it takes the outer half and rolls to point. The fielder there dives to his right to make the stop.

Lasith Malinga To Sunil Ambris
Wide! The wind is just too strong at the moment and it's not easy for the bowlers. Malinga sprays a length ball wide down the leg side, Ambris swings his bat and misses. A good take by the keeper.

A near yorker by Malinga, around middle, Gayle digs it out in front of mid off and scampers across to the other end.

Lasith Malinga To Chris Gayle
Play and a miss first ball! Too full in length and wide outside off, Gayle chases it away from his body but fails to keep it out.
The run chase is upon us! Chris Gayle will open the innings with Sunil Ambris, who seems to have recovered after hurting his ankle while fielding. The Lankan players get into a huddle near the boundary line. They have plenty in the bank at the moment but need to spend carefully. Lasith Malinga to begin with the first new ball.
