This is an interesting Super 10 match of World T20 2016 between Sri Lanka and West Indies. These both sides are going quiet tough but let’s see how it goes and which team takes victory. Scroll down to find out!
In this match, West Indies won the toss and elected to field first. Now West Indies is been fantastic so far and maybe they’re looking to chase the target. West Indies might have some plans for Sri Lanka to get restrict them to a very low target. Sri Lankan openers Dinesh Chandimal and TM Dilshan took a good start of their batting. But Dinesh Chandimal got run-out and Dilshan was given LBW out. Even Lahiru Thirimanne and Chamara Kapugedera did not stayed on the crease any longer. Samuel Badree’s bowling spell is been impressive and that’s what created difficulties for Sri Lankan batsmen. It was just Thisara Perera who played good knock of 40 runs that helped Sri Lanka to score 122, which is not easier to defend. It is been kind of unfortunate for Sri Lankan batting order, because it’s not performing in a way that it should. The whole batting order of Sri Lanka was collapsed on very low scoring; credit goes to Samuel Badree who bowled his 4 overs with the economy of 3.00 and took 3 wickets. Dwayne Bravo also took 2 wickets. Now the pressure is on Sri Lankan bowlers to defend such a low score! Let’s see how it goes with the batting order of West Indies.
In the 2nd innings, West Indies took a great start with the openers Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles. Both of them seemed really relaxed and began the game nicely. Unfortunately, Johnson Charles was removed by Sri Lankan bowler Jeffrey Vandersay, but Fletcher kept up with his game and played an wonderful knock. Marlon Samuels and Denesh Ramdin, both didn’t worked well either. All-and-all it was just one-man show and Andre Fletcher really nailed it. He scored 84 runs; hitting 6 fours and 5 sixes. In the end, Andre Russel came up by his side and they both took the victory. Sri Lankan bowlers didn’t worked well to dismiss Fletcher and that’s where they lost the game. Fletcher really entertained everyone around! West Indies won the match by 7 wickets with 10 balls still remaining. Congratulations to West Indian cricket team for their interesting game.
Sri Lanka is going downwards in ranks of their cricket game because of their absolute poor performances. It wasn’t expected from such an outstanding team. But now, they have to figure out their flaws and cover them in order to survive in the ranks now. Well, West Indies played brilliantly. It was Andre Fletcher who was declared as Player of the Match. Absolutely well deserved as the way he played! Wow..
