Sri Lanka have won by 131 runs and make a pretty picture

Ashraful says " 357 was too large a target to be chased down " and " bowlers did not bowl well". He is hopeful that they can do well in the matches to come

Sangakkara is the Man of match and says "It's nothing new to open as I have played pretty much from 1 to 9"

Jayawardene is happy to have got things right in the first match and is happy that youngsters have performed
