all over! Murali spins one in faster outside off stump, and it spins in to catch a clueless Leverock going back, he's rapped in front of middle and leg and Howell says yes, thats out, sir!
So, a huge win for Sri Lanka in their Group B opener, 243 runs. They earlier blasted their way to 321-6 after electing to bat first, with captain Jayawardene, Sangakkara and World Cup debutant Chamara Silva each racking up half-centuries. It was always going to be a total out of Bermuda's reach. No batsman, bar the cavalier Lionell Cann, got going. Vaas and Malinga struck early, and Maharoof joined in with two in his first over to reduce the minnows to 39 for 7. Muralitharan was given a chance, and he too joined the fun with 2 for 28. Maharoof finished with the best figures, 4 for 23.
Thats all we have for you today/tonight, folks. Do join us for two matches tomorrow, February 16, a Group A clash between the Netherlands and South Africa at Warner Park in St Kitts, and Group C rivals England versus New Zealand at St Lucia's Beausejour Stadium. Both games will begin at 13:30 GMT.
This is Jamie Alter signing off with a hearty cheers!
tossed up again outside off stump, Leverock defends and they all go up in appeal, but umpire Howell says nope
tossed up again, now he gets behind the line and defends back to Murali
tossed up, he comes forward and defends
and the crowd erupts in cheer as Leverock works a wide one past point to get off the mark
good length delivery outside off stump, Leverock plays it to cover point
angling down the leg, Leverock turns it to square leg
Here's the last man, Leverock
much shorter and wider this time outside off stump, an impetuous Cann cant resist flaying the bat out at it, he has too go a little too far outside off stump and gets a thin under-edge through to Sangakkara...the fun ends for him!
Cann's having a ball! Maharoof drags one in very short and Cann pulls it from outside off stump over midwicket for four
hello dollie! Hurdle gets inventive, spinning and slamming a low full toss over deep fine leg for six, I bet he loved that one!
tossed up, Hurdle comes forward and defends to silly point
fired in on middle and leg, he heaves it away through square leg for one more
gone! A slower delivery, pitched up, and Borden just chips it straight to Kulasekera at mid-off!
a low full toss, Borden makes room and plays it to silly point
pitched up on middle and leg, Cann drives it to fine leg for one
