Right then. That is all we have from this game. On Friday, 05th November 2021, we have two more games lined up for you. The first game sees the clash between New Zealand and Namibia at 2 pm local (10 am GMT), which will be followed by the battle between India and Scotland at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Do join us for all the action. Cheers!
Dasun Shanaka, captain of Sri Lanka says that it's a very good victory and these youngsters have been working really hard. Hails the performances of Pathum and Charith and the bowling was on spot as well. Mentions that Asalanka and Nissanka both have great potential and have a long career ahead of them and wherever they play, they'll have a special place in that team. Adds that the team is going in the right decision at the moment and the fans have been supporting us whether we win or lose and he would like to thank the fans for their unconditional support. About Hasaranga, he says that Wanindu is a special talent and they need to protect him and he's a superstar for world cricket.
Kieron Pollard, the skipper of West Indies, says that they were below par as in this type of crucial match they have to perform well. Says that Sri Lanka batted smartly. Says that Hetmyer batted brilliantly and that is what he is known for. Adds that their idea was to explode in the end. Says that their batting has been inconsistent and their experienced guys have not done well. tells that the players are hurt and did not see this coming but have to face the reality.
Charith Asalanka, is the Man of the Match, he says that it's always good to have a half-century and a match winning knock for his country and is always happy to do that. Mentions that before this World Cup, he hadn't played much T20 cricket and learned a lot by asking the senior players. Adds that he has worked really hard for five years and it has paid off and will look to do his best for the country. He ends by thanking the Sri Lankan fans in their native language.
...Stay tuned for the Presentation...
Just the two batters managed to score above 10, Pooran and Hetmyer. That is not what you need chasing a big total. They needed more contributions from the likes of Gayle, Lewis, Pollard and Russell but the 4 just contributed for 11. That has been the story though so far for the Windies, their batting has let them down in this tournament and in this game, they were quite under par in all departments.
It was the batters who did the job earlier on, the likes of Nissanka, Asalanka and a cameo from Shanaka took them close to 200. The bowlers then continued the momentum, they got two early as Fernando was brilliant with the new ball. Then there was a quick fire stand between Chase and Pooran but once the former fell after the Powerplay, the Lankan spinners squeezed the runs. The run rate needed was always increasing and everytime Windies looked to break the shackles, they lost a wicket. Except for Theekshana, every body had a wicket atleast but the spinners were very economical.
Quite a convincing win for Lanka in the end and that ends the hopes of the Windies for making it through to the semis. The chance for them going through was very slim but it is now all over. Sri Lanka on the other hand, end their tournament on a high.

Dasun Shanaka To Jason Holder OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! The height is fine and Holder now has to walk back! He should have put that away! Shanaka gets a wicket of a full toss. It is on middle, he looks to heave it but it goes off the splice of the bat towards deep mid-wicket. The fielder runs in and takes it with a slide. Holder feels it is a no ball. The umpires take it upstairs with the soft signal being OUT! Replays show it is below the waist height. Six and out then for Holder.
Dwayne Bravo comes in at number 9.
The umpires are checking for a No Ball for height. Was it above waist height? If not, then it's another nail in the Windies coffin. The third umpire is satisfied with the height and deems the catch to be a fair one. OUT!

Chamika Karunaratne To Andre Russell OUT!

He bangs it in short, this one skids through, well directed too. Russell fails to get on top of the bounce as he tries to pull. It goes off the top edge and the bowler takes an easy catch.
Chamika Karunaratne (2-0-13-1) is brought back into the attack.
