West Indies withstood a late surge from Sri Lanka's tailenders to triumph by 17 runs, in the warm-up encounter in Birmingham yesterday.

 

Fifties by Johnson Charles, Darren Bravo and Ramnaresh Sarwan, propelled West Indies to 297 for 6.

 

Sri Lanka was unable to exert sustained control over the run chase as they lost wickets regularly.

 

A 73-run ninth-wicket stand between Dilhara Lokuhettige and Nuwan Kulasekara put Sri Lanka in sight of victory, but Dwayne Bravo mopped up the remaining wickets, and finished with a match-best 3 for 26 from his 5 overs.
