Sri Lanka win the 3-match series 2-0 and would go into the World Cup as one of the favorites. West Indies, on the other hand never looked to be in the match once Darren Bravo got out. The positive for them is that the middle order is starting to look solid and they can go a long way in the World Cup if Gayle fires

Man of the match is Kumar Sangakkara and Man of the series is Upul Tharanga
