Sri Lanka complete a 198-run win over Bangladesh
Sri Lanka complete a 198-run win over Bangladesh to do their chances of a Super Eight spot no harm. They were led by Sanath Jayasuriya’s blitz of a century, Mahela Jayawardene’s plucky 46, and fifties from Kumar Sangakkara and Chamara Silva as they totalled 318 for 4. Bangladesh, in reply, failed to get going as Chaminda Vaas and Lasith Malinga struck early blows and barring Jayasuriya, every bowler used got a wicket.
A comprehensive victory for Sri Lanka. All eyes now turn to the crucial Sri Lanka-India game on March 23. -Cricinfo-
