Dinesh Chandimal and Dasun Shanaka's heroics helped Sri Lanka beat Ireland in the first one-day international in Malahide by 76 runs yesterday.

The 24-year-old Shanaka, playing only his 12th international match -10 of them Twenty20s, took five for 43 to add to his whirlwind 42 off 19 balls in Sri Lanka's imposing 303 for seven, which also featured Dinesh Chandimal's 100 not out.

Victory saw Sri Lanka take a 1- nil lead in the two-match series ahead of Saturday's second ODI, also in Malahide.

Rain interrupted the game in the 33rd over of Ireland's reply, giving them a revised target of 293 in 47 overs to chase.
