Commentary

Presentation

Sammy: The bowlers bowled really well to us. NZ game is a must-win for us. We are always a boundary hitting team. We bowled too short and wide. The SL bowlers bowled fuller and we didn't do that enough.

Jayawardene: "Overall a very good effort. When they were going after our bowlers I just kept changing the bowlers. Once we got through the first 12 overs I told Kumar we should finish this as quickly as possible."

Jayawardene is also the Man of the Match.

The big one's coming up tomorrow - India v Pakistan. Before that, Australia v South Africa. Your Sunday's packed.

That's it from us. Thanks for the mails and your company. Cheers!

End of match: That's SL's best win in T20 internationals in terms of balls remaining - 28. After Australia yesterday, we've witnessed yet another comprehensive thrashing. Really disappointing from WI's point of view. Their dependence on Gayle was exposed and the rest were never quite good enough to challenge the hosts. There were too many rubbish deliveries.

Not taking any credit away from Sri Lanka. Their fielding was sharp, the bowlers didn't give away too many scoring opportunities and the batsmen never looked in trouble.

Rampaul to Jayawardene, FOUR runs, Jayawardene at his best! Back to his silent-killing best, makes room and cheekily dabs the ball past the keeper and down to third man, really dents a bowler's confidence
