CWC 2015 LIVE - Two Tons Wins It For SL v Eng

#SriLanka v #England, #Wellington
1st Mar 2015

#LahiruThirimanne overcame demons in his mind against #JamesAnderson to post a magnificent century (139*) to lead Sri Lanka to a huge win by 9 wickets.

But, the man who stole the show was veteran #KumarSangakkara with a sublime 117* from just 86 deliveries post such a convincing win against a good score of 309.

#Sanga and Thirimanne picked their spots, bowlers and timing to ensure they kept up with the #runrate at all times and panic did not set in.

English bowlers seemed hapless and hopeless against that onslaught.
Poor fielding and dropped catches didn't help matters as well.

All in all, Sri Lanka gaining the right momentum at the right time while England slumping further.
They are in a must-win situation against Bangladesh for that fourth QF spot in Pool A.

Man of the Match: Kumar Sangakarra
