West Indies Tri-Nation Series - 1st match

West Indies v Sri Lanka

West Indies won by 6 wickets (with 73 balls remaining)

13.1

DJ Bravo to Tharanga, OUT, there comes the first wicket! It was a short of length delivery angling across the left hander, Tharanga chooses to throw his bat at that without moving his feet and pays the price as he gets a feather on that one. It settles in keeper's gloves at a nice comfortable height

Sri Lanka 62/1   DPMD Jayawardene 36* (36b 5x4)   DJ Bravo 1.1-0-6-1

17.5

Narine to Jayawardene, OUT, given right away, Mahela turns back immediately as well, Narine strikes in his first over, tossed up offspinner, Mahela hesitantly forward to try and defend, inside edge, onto pad, and pops up for Ramdin to take a dolly, what a huge strike, he was purring along, Mahela

DPMD Jayawardene c †Ramdin b Narine 52 (86m 52b 7x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Samuels to Chandimal, OUT, they are falling, softly but surely, now Chandimal picks out midwicket, leaning out and casually turning a full offbreak to the fielder

37.2

Rampaul to Kulasekara, OUT, Pollard takes the top edge on the deep square leg boundary, Kula leans back and goes for the pull to a bouncer dug into him, Pollard runs to his right and settles under it, takes it with the top of his fingers, but safely in the end
