Steps out and drives it in the air to the leaping extra covers who puts down the catch and that will be a single. Hang on, there is an overthrow conceded at the batting end and that will do it for Sri Lanka!
Sri Lanka defeat West Indies by 9 wickets with 28 balls to spare. They inch closer towards making it to the Semi Finals.
Mahela Jayawardene, the winning Sri Lankan Captain and also the Man of the Match for his unbeaten knock says: "The boys stuck to their guns and asked a lot of questions of the WI batsmen. To top it off we finished well with the bat. If Chris was batting we would have had different tactics. I thought that if I bowl one guy too much they could line him up so I kept changing it. We still have a game to play. After 12 overs me and Kumar decided to try and finish it off quickly to finish with a good run rate."
Darren Sammy, the losing West Indies Skipper says: "We are disappointed. We had momentum coming into the game. Playing the SL bowlers in their own backyard is very tough. We have a must win situation. Today they bowled well, we didn't. We bowled a little too short and wide. We still have one more chance. The way the Sri Lankans used the conditions was good. They varied the pace and did well."
