India was knocked out of the ICC Women's World Cup after suffering an upset 138-run drubbing at the hands of Sri Lanka in a crucial Group A encounter yesterday.
Chasing a challenging total of 283, the hosts put up a pathetic show to be bowled out for 144 in 42.2 overs at the Brabourne Stadium.
Incidentally, this was India's first defeat to Sri Lanka in 18 matches, having won their previous 16 encounters with one ending in no result.
Sri Lanka qualifies for the Super Six.
Meanwhile the information department states that President Mahinda Rajapkse also congratulated the Sri lankan Women’s cricket captain Shashikala Siriwarana for the achievement.
