SL 131/4 (20) lost to West Indies 134/7(19)

Heartbreak for Sri Lanka, who fought hard with the ball after a terrible first 10 overs with the bat. 

Sri Lanka lost the decisive third match to lose the series to West Indies 1-2. 

West Indies needing 20 from the last two overs, scored it with one over to spare as they tore into Akhila Dhananjaya scoring three sixes in the 19th over.

Akhila finished gave away 53 runs in his 4 overs in a low scroing encounter, 

Fabian Allen is player of the match for his 1 for 13 with the ball, and 21 not out off 6 with the bat: "I prepare for everything, including bowling in the Powerplay. I just backed myself and executed. The pitch is very slow, so I just needed to execute my plans. When I look in the dressing room we have a lot of batting power. I told Jason Holder that I'm not comfortable batting against Hasaranga, so I told him to bat him out and I'll be finishing. I just backed myself in the end. It was a good performance overall."
