Match notes
  • Sri Lanka's 1st ever World Cup semi final.
  • RS Mahanama retired hurt at 182/5 (37.2 overs) (leg injury)
  • At the fall of the 8th Indian wicket, sections of the crowd vented their disgust with the state of the match by setting fire to some areas of the stands and throwing fruit and waterbottles onto the field. The match was briefly stopped and when play was about to resume, the crowd again threw bottles at the deep fielders. The match referee stopped the game and the game was awarded to Sri Lanka by default.
  • 4th win for the team batting first from 5 matches under lights at Eden Gardens.
  • Sri Lanka qualify for their 1st ever World Cup final.
