Sri Lanka and India into the finals.

Wednesday, 10 July 2013 - 8:07


India 119 for 3 beat Sri Lanka 96 by 81 runs by the D/L method yesterday.


In yet another match in Trinidad severely affected by rain, the World Cup and Champions Trophy holders battled to 119 for 3 off 29 overs before a torrential downpour just before midday seemed set to force the match into a reserve day.


However the conditions improved significantly in late afternoon, and with the Sri Lankans set a revised target of 178 off 26 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis system, Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced an outstanding spell of seaming bowling, taking four for 8 off his allotted 6 overs and ensuring that Sri Lanka were routed for 96 in reply.


India and Sri Lanka qualify for the final.
