Well, that was emphatic. Sri Lanka hardly got a work-out there, having already qualified of course, and they were really the men out there.

Ireland bow out of the competition with their worst defeat. Having said that, some excellent Irish performances has lent credence to the Associates. So, Sri Lanka hardly putting a collective foot wrong and they will now be continuing their march in the semi-finals some time next week.

Thanks for joining us today. If you're keen to tune in tomorrow, it will be Bangladesh and West Indies.

"Everyone did very well," confirms a smiling Jayasuriya. Quite so.

Carroll to Jayawardene, no run, 'Bowled!' - that one came out of the back of the hand and the keeper loves it. You've got to admire the enthusiasm

Carroll to Jayawardene, no run, full toss, and Jayawardene laughs after being taken by surprise, just driving that to cover
