HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:32 (IST)

    SRI LANKA WIN: On to the last over of the innings. Mathews comes to bowl it. And it's all over. Windies lose to Lanka by 23 runs. A clinical performance by the Islanders takes them to a well-deserved win. 

  • 23:26 (IST)

    OUT: After Pooran's dismissal, there seems to be no way that the Windies can pull off a victory. There are just too many dots at the moment. Malinga has his third wicket now as he gets Oshane Thomas LBW for 1. Windies are 311/9. 

  • 23:18 (IST)

    OUT: Angelo Mathews comes into the attack and he has a wicket on the first ball. And he gets the big wicket of Pooran. A wide one, Pooran chases the ball and manages to edge it. Pooran has to go for 118. Windies are 308/8.

  • 23:00 (IST)

    100 FOR POORAN: And Pooran has his maiden ton here. He gets there in just 92 deliveries, and most importantly this knock has kept Windies in the hunt. Excellent batting by the Southpaw.

  • 22:57 (IST)

    OUT: What an unfortunate end to Allen's innings. There is confusion between Allen and Pooran, but the former sacrifices his wicket for his team's cause. Windies are now 282/7. 

  • 22:55 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR ALLEN: The equation is still not out of hand for Windies. Meanwhile Allen gets yet another six, this time straight past the bowler. That also brings up his fifty in only 30 balls. What an excellent innings this has been. So after 44 overs Windies are 282/6. 

  • 22:40 (IST)

    FOUR, SIX: De Silva starts his final over and is greeted with a six by Pooran. He moves into the 90s now. This match is still not over. He gets another four, but this time due to a bottom edge. After 41 overs Windies are 255/6.

  • 22:31 (IST)

    FOUR: Udana starts a fresh over. And he is creamed for a four thourgh covers by Allen. But this is certainly not enough at the moment. So after the 39th over Windies are 234/6.

  • 22:08 (IST)

    OUT: Udana comes back into the attack and Pooran has just started to accelerate. The bowler strays in line and is dispatched for a four by Pooran. But there is an unfortunate run out for Windies out of nowhere. Pooran plays the ball straight back to the bowler, and latter deflects the ball on stumps. Brathwaite is out for 8. WIndies are 199/6. 

  • 21:58 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR POORAN: Pooran slams a six off Karunaratne on the first ball and that brings up a well-deserved fifty for the southpaw. He has been mighty impressive till now and needs to continue from here. It's 179/5 after 33 overs. 

  • 21:46 (IST)

    End of 30 overs and West Indies are 159 for 5. They still need 180 runs. Brathwaite and Pooran will have to play special innings if West Indies want to get anywhere near that total. Pooran is now set, while Brathwaite has already played one heck of an innings against New Zealand. The problem is they don't have enough wickets in hand.

  • 21:37 (IST)

    Another one bites the dust! Holder can't believe it! Vandersay dropped one in his arc but Holder ended up hitting it straight to the fielder at mid-on. The partnership has been broken and WI are now five down. 

  • 21:08 (IST)

    Back to back good overs from Vandersay and Rajitha, West Indies batsmen haven't been able to get going and are 94 for 4 in 20 overs. Someone will have to come up with something special if WI want to win this game. 

  • 20:59 (IST)

    Another one departs! Rajitha and Udana haven't allowed him to get going an Hetmyer tried to show some urgency by tapping one straight to backward point and took off for a quick single. Pooran rightly turned him back but Dhananjaya got the direct hit. WI are now four down.

  • 20:41 (IST)

    Rajitha bowls one low full toss and Gayle tonks it over long on for a maximum. The paceman gets his revenge on the very next delivery and had Gayle caught at short third man. This was on good length and Gayle went for a big heave, only to end up top-edging it to the fielder. This is a huge wicket for WI.

Lanka in total control

22:24 (IST)

Windies need a couple of big overs to bring that required run-rate down. One boundary per over is not going to help their case. But for now they are finding it difficult to hit Malinga. After 37.4 overs it's 220/6. 

22:17 (IST)

Malinga comes back into the attack and he will just be looking for yorkers. He ensures that he doesn't concede any boundary in the over. Seven runs added to Windies' total. The score after 36 overs reads as 207/6. 

22:08 (IST)

OUT: Udana comes back into the attack and Pooran has just started to accelerate. The bowler strays in line and is dispatched for a four by Pooran.

21:55 (IST)
Good support here for the Windies
21:48 (IST)

Vandersay has been very inconsistent and has bowled way to many bad deliveries, but WI batsmen have failed to make the most of it. Eight runs from this over, they are 168 for 5.

21:46 (IST)

End of 30 overs and West Indies are 159 for 5. They still need 180 runs. Brathwaite and Pooran will have to play special innings if West Indies want to get anywhere near that total. Pooran is now set, while Brathwaite has already played one heck of an innings against New Zealand. The problem is they don't have enough wickets in hand.

21:37 (IST)

21:28 (IST)

A half-volley from Dhananjaya and Pooran times it down the ground for four. Pooran then survived a stumping chance and is now starting to look comfortable. WI are 132 for 4 in 26 overs. The two spinners are doing a decent job for Sri Lanka.

21:21 (IST)

21:08 (IST)

Back to back good overs from Vandersay and Rajitha, West Indies batsmen haven't been able to get going and are 94 for 4 in 20 overs. Someone will have to come up with something special if WI want to win this game.

20:47 (IST)

Run out opportunity but Pooran had enough time to turn back and return to the crease. Pooran knocked it towards mid-on and set off for a single but was turned down by Hetmyer from the other end. He managed to get back on time, no harms done.

20:41 (IST)

Rajitha bowls one low full toss and Gayle tonks it over long on for a maximum. The paceman gets his revenge on the very next delivery and had Gayle caught at short third man.

Sri Lanka vs West Indies in the ICC World Cup 2019 on July 1st (Monday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played at Durham and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog. (SL vs WI).

Sri Lanka and West Indies will now be playing just for pride when they come face to face in their next 2019 World Cup encounter in Chester-le-Street on Monday (July 1).

West Indies were already out of the World Cup after their defeat to India, while Sri Lanka too now can't make it to the semifinals after Virat Kohli's men lost to England on Sunday.

Sri Lanka can still get up to 10 points if they win their remaining two games but with two of their matches being washed out, they can only end with a maximum of four wins. Meanwhile, England, New Zealand, India and Australia have already won at least five games.

Sri Lanka's 20-run win over England revived their campaign but a nine-wicket loss to South Africa in the very next game brought them right back to square one.

Against South Africa, their inconsistent batting came to the fore yet again and skipper Dimuth Karunaratne will look to improve on that against a challenging West Indian bowling attack.

With their batting unit misfiring more often than not, the onus to secure favorable results has always been put on the experienced bowling attack, led by veteran speedster Lasith Malinga.

With Nuwan Pradeep being forced out of the tournament due to chickenpox, Sri Lanka will rely heavily on their bowling spearhead once again.

The Jason Holder-led side, on the other hand, will look to finish on a high after being knocked out of the tournament.

West Indies came into the tournament as a potential surprise package and started their World Cup campaign with a bang, demolishing Pakistan by seven wickets.

But things have gone from bad to worse for them since as they have suffered five defeats since. Though they have been impressive in parts, the side has failed to hold their nerve in tight games.

They could yet cause Sri Lanka some issues if their destructive batting line up – including the likes of Chris Gayle, Carlos Brathwaite, and Shai Hope – comes to the party.

Last Five ODIs

West Indies: NRLLLL

West Indies’ match with South Africa was washed out but they have been on the losing end of things four times since then. India, Australia and Bangladesh registered emphatic wins whereas New Zealand won a close encounter.

Sri Lanka: NRNRLWL

Sri Lanka saw two games washed out before suffering a big loss to Australia. They stunned everyone by trumping hosts England but were poor against South Africa and were defeated by a massive margin.

Players to Watch Out For

Chris Gayle: The self-professed Universe Boss won’t be retiring from ODI cricket after this World Cup but this is going to be his last time on the big stage. He has underwhelmed with the bat so far but has shown flashes of his power hitting and is due a big knock soon.

Dimuth Karunaratne: The Sri Lanka skipper has been the pick of their batsmen and a lot will be dependent on him getting off to a good start. Their chances of winning the match will rely heavily on how their captain performs.

Team News

West Indies: They have no injury issues at present but could give some squad players a chance to play.

Sri Lanka: Nuwan Pradeep has been ruled out of the tournament meaning Kasun Rajitha will come into the squad.

Squads

West Indies: Jason Holder (captain), Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach, Ashley Nurse, Nicholas Pooran, Sunil Ambris, Evin Lewis, Shannon Gabriel, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen.

Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne (capt), Dhananjaya de Silva, Kasun Rajitha , Avishka Fernando, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Mendis, Jeevan Mendis, Kusal Perera, Thisara Perera, Milinda Siriwardana, Lahiru Thirimanne, Isuru Udana, Jeffrey Vandersay.
