ICC World Twenty20 - 18th match, Group 1

Sri Lanka v West Indies

Sri Lanka won by 9 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)

4.5

BAW Mendis to Charles, OUT, reward for some excellent bowling by Mendis, Charles doesn't see any point in using the crease against Mendis so he decides to give him the charge, fails to read the googly and he's a long way out, easy stumping

J Charles st †Sangakkara b BAW Mendis 12 (23m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

West Indies 16/1   CH Gayle 2* (8b)   BAW Mendis 0.5-0-0-1

5.1

Kulasekara to Gayle, OUT, Kula's got the Big Fish! Look at the bowler celebrate, slower ball - leg cutter - and really wide of the off stump, Gayle couldn't resist chasing that after being subdued for so long, thick outside edge and it loops towards Sangakkara who dives and takes the catch

CH Gayle c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 2 (26m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

West Indies 16/2   MN Samuels 0* (1b)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.1-0-3-1

14.3

BMAJ Mendis to Bravo, OUT, big blow for West Indies with the solid Bravo gone! It was short and turned a bit too, Bravo rocked back and pulled it over mid-on, long-on takes it easily in front of the rope

DJ Bravo c Dilshan b BMAJ Mendis 40 (36m 34b 4x4 2x6) SR: 117.64

West Indies 81/3   MN Samuels 23* (23b 2x4)   BMAJ Mendis 1.3-0-3-1

15.5

BAW Mendis to Pollard, OUT, that's Mendis' 100th wicket in T20s (including domestic)! And he gets the big man, pushed through quicker and Pollard was forward, beaten in flight and yorked himself

KA Pollard b BAW Mendis 1 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 90/4   MN Samuels 31* (25b 2x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 3.5-1-11-2

19.2

Mathews to Samuels, OUT, excellent catch by Dilshan! He pulls a short one on front of square and it was in the air for quite a while, Dilshan ran to his right from long-on and kept his eyes on the ball, two fielders converge

MN Samuels c Dilshan b Mathews 50 (64m 35b 4x4 2x6) SR: 142.85

West Indies 123/5   AD Russell 14* (11b 1x6)   AD Mathews 3.2-0-25-1
