West Indies’ bowlers fought hard to make a match of it, but Sri Lanka held its nerve to cross the line with seven balls remaining in a thrilling truncated first One-Day International at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.
Mendis walked in and kept Sri Lanka in the hunt, even as Carter god rid of Sachithra Senanayake and Lasith Malinga off consecutive deliveries to leave Sri Lanka nine down with 11 to get. Mendis, however, sealed the game with a six over long-on off Johnson Charles.
Speaking at a Press conference TM Dilshan stated that Sri Lankan team is supposed to learn a lot from West Indies team.
