Commentary

Close Jayasuriya's ton - and Sri Lanka's enthusiasm - proved a big difference there, with Sri Lanka racing to victory. West Indies' high point was when they took two early wickets; from then on it was all Sri Lanka. This could spell the end of West Indies' World Cup hopes - technically they're still in the competition, but on the evidence of their recent games, they're not looking cohesive, nor a well-oiled unit.

Sri Lanka deserve their victory, let's take nothing away from them. Thanks for joining us today, please do return to Cricinfo tomorrow when you can follow Bangladesh's fortunes in Antigua; they're playing New Zealand.

Jayasuriya to Powell, OUT, and that's it. Cleaned up by some tidy work and that's a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka

Jayasuriya to Bradshaw, 1 run, outside off and that was driven to long-on

Jayasuriya to Powell, 1 run, outside off and that's driven slowly off the back foot to point

Muralitharan to Powell, no run, outside off and that straightens, but was too high

Martin Mercury starts singing "Another one bites the dust." It's a thing to hear, as much as his tight yellow trousers are a sight to behold. Daren Powell steps up to face Murali meanwhile

Muralitharan to Taylor, OUT, pitched in-line and just did enough to go on to hit the stumps. All the team go up for that one, trying to Umpire Harper's decision much easier. He didn't really need their help, squinting through his yellow lenses to give that one
