Oct 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka restricted West Indies to 137 in the ICC Twenty20 final match at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today.
Sri Lanka bowling after West Indies won the toss and decided to bat eliminated the much anticipated threat from Chris Gayle dismissing him for 3 on a ball from Ajantha Mendis. Angelo Mathews dismissed Johnson Charles, the other opener for West Indies with no score.
Ajantha Mendis with his 4 wickets for 12 demolished West Indies but Marlon Samuels resisted with a 78 off 56 balls that included six sixes until Akila Dananjaya bowled him out.
Sri Lanka is hopeful of finally winning a world title having come close to the opportunity 4 times but missing at the last minute.
