Commentary

So, a huge win for Sri Lanka in their Group B opener, 243 runs. They earlier blasted their way to 321-6 after electing to bat first, with captain Jayawardene, Sangakkara and World Cup debutant Chamara Silva each racking up half-centuries. It was always going to be a total out of Bermuda's reach. No batsman, bar the cavalier Lionell Cann, got going. Vaas and Malinga struck early, and Maharoof joined in with two in his first over to reduce the minnows to 39 for 7. Muralitharan was given a chance, and he too joined the fun with 2 for 28. Maharoof finished with the best figures, 4 for 23.

Thats all we have for you today/tonight, folks. Do join us for two matches tomorrow, February 16, a Group A clash between the Netherlands and South Africa at Warner Park in St Kitts, and Group C rivals England versus New Zealand at St Lucia's Beausejour Stadium. Both games will begin at 13:30 GMT.

This is Jamie Alter signing off with a hearty cheers!

Muralitharan to Leverock, OUT, all over! Murali spins one in faster outside off stump, and it spins in to catch a clueless Leverock going back, he's rapped in front of middle and leg and Howell says yes, thats out, sir!
