Commentary

Sri Lanka storm home by 130 runs. Quite a walkover really after Zimbabwe wobbled to Kulasekara early on. Some of the indiscreet shots gave the impression that they had given up already.

Mendis beat Ajit Agarkar's record for the fastest to 50 ODI wickets. Agarkar did it in 23 games but Mendis managed it in just 19. And he has an average of 10.

Stay with us for the presentation.

Sld, from United States: "Another typical outing by Zimbabwe and clinical thrashing by Sri Lanka. Well at least you guys get to enjoy the rest of the day and I can go to sleep early."

Utseya: "We didn't put up a fight. No excuses for the way we played. The bowling has been good. The batsmen should apply themselves a bit more."

Jayawardene: "The toss does play a crucial part for the 9am start. Angelo, Mubarak and Tharanga guided us through the difficult period. The wicket surprises us everyday. It played differently in the morning. "

Angelo Mathews is the Man of the Match: He says: "When I went out to bat the wicket was doing a bit. I've played on these types of wickets of before. I'm thankful to the seniors."

So Sri Lanka have gained a bonus point. Zimbabwe have four and Bangladesh will be under immense pressure to beat Sri Lanka convincingly on Wednesday to give themselves a shot at the final. That's it from us. Do join us on the 14th for the final league game. Cheers!
