ICC Cricket World Cup- Sri Lanka v West Indies- Pre Play

Sri Lanka's topsy-turvy tournament continued in Durham with a 23-run victory over West Indies, just four days after their were beaten by nine wickets on the same ground by South Africa.

Earlier, Fernando smashed his first one-day global century as Sri Lanka scored an imposing 338-6 in the first innings. The veteran paceman's late wicket all but finished it off and moved him into the top three of most prolific World Cup bowlers. Perhaps, him conceding 46 runs in five overs made West Indies Jason Holder think of other bowling options especially in the slog overs.

Undoubtedly, this unexpected defeat against Sri Lanka was very disappointing for Windies as they were very close to the win but again fall short.

Rihanna's reaction when Chris Gayle got out, head back in disbelief, summed up the overall feeling of the game over at 71-3.

West Indies earlier chose to field first against Sri Lanka in the World Cup group game that will have no bearing on the playoffs but has plenty of pride at stake for each team.

L'arrêt des traitements reprend ce mardi — Vincent Lambert

While we have a lot to say about Rihanna, it certainly remains a mourning period for the West Indies team.

But when Pooran (118 off 103 balls) and Fabian Allen (51 off 32 balls) combined in an 83-run, seventh-wicket stand, the hopes were revived. Allen had the spotlight, a 30-ball half-century cameo containing seven boundaries and a six down the ground that drew Rihanna to her feet. The West Indies referred the decision to the TV umpire, but lost the review when replay technology showed the ball was going down leg side.

Mathews, who impressed with the ball, added that it was his first ball since December 2017.

"This hasn't been a successful tournament for us but as sportsmen, you fail more than you win and this has been a learning experience", he was quoted as saying by the ICC.

"Angelo put his hands up and said "OK I will bowl two overs".

Gauff, 15, wins again at Wimledon
At 1-3, 15-40 down, Rybarikova managed a good hold that could have given her a boost and thrown her much younger opponent off. Cori "Coco" Gauff is headed to Wimbledon's third round after beating Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round on Wednesday.


"After the World Cup, we have to sit down and discuss what the future plans are".

Pooran, who struck his maiden One-Day International (ODI) hundred against Sri Lanka in a losing cause, wants to use his side's forgettable run as a learning experience.

Isuru Udana has been the pick of Sri Lanka's bowler and Shimron Hetmyer will face a stiff challenge when he faces the left-armer.The angle created by Udana to a left-handed batsman will be a critical factor that will make this contest interesting between the two players. West Indies' hopes of a fast start were dashed when Malinga got rid of both Sunil Ambris and Shai Hope in quick succession.

West Indies' batsman Nicholas Pooran reacts as he leaves the crease after being dismissed by Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews yesterday.

"Unfortunate that we couldn't reach the semifinals - at least we can finish off well", he said. Ponting became Australia's captain, and won three World Cups.
