It was absolutely a good contest of cricket. Although both teams are out of the tournament, they played with more freedom and entertained the viewers. It was a very big score built by Sri Lanka. It’s 338. Could you imagine the score? It’s Sri Lanka, they defeated England! and Now it’s 338 to chase by Windies. Kusal Mendis, Avishka Fernando & Lahiru Thirimanne contributed most to score 338 runs. It was a close match. Windies played well but couldn’t execute it at last. 118 of 103 for Nicholas Pooran made the match close. Windies were going to win the match, but suddenly Sri Lankan captain brought Angelo Mathews back to the attack who wasn’t bowled after December 2017. Mathews made the breakthrough. He took the wicket of Nicholas Pooran and that was the end of the game for Windies.
