Sri Lanka vs West Indies, Mumbai

Match 6, WIN vs SRI: With the best bowling figures in ICC Champions Trophy history, Maharoof the man of the moment

Farveez Maharoof took 6-14 for Sri Lanka as they hammered West Indies by nine wickets in the final Champions Trophy qualifier. Windies', after winning the toss decided to bat first, and were all out for 80, their second lowest score in ODIs. Only Wavell Hinds (28) and Brian Lara (13) reached double figures.
Upul Tharanga fell first ball but Sanath Jayasuriya (45) and Mahela Jayawardene (34) saw Sri Lanka home with almost 37 overs to spare. Sri Lanka now joins New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa in Group B, while the Windies face the daunting prospect of lining up alongside hosts India, world champions Australia and England. Sri Lanka Team U Tharanga, S Jayasuriya, M Jayawardene (Captain), K Sangakkara (Wicket Keeper), M Atapattu, T Dilshan, F Maharoof, C Vaas, D Fernando, L Malinga, M Muralitharan

Sri Lanka, Windies look to top qualifying stage

Having already booked their place in the main stage of the ICC Champions Trophy, titleholders West Indies and Sri Lanka would be keen to keep their momentum going when they clash in the qualifying match at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.
There's very little to choose between the cricketers from the Emerald Island and those from the Caribbean and the tie, the first international outing in the splendid setting at the Cricket Club of India in more than a decade, promises to be thrilling contest. The victors in the match would qualify for Group B that comprises of South Africa, Pakistan and New Zealand. The losers would be pooled together with World Cup champions Australia, hosts India and England in Group A.
West Indies captain Brian Lara said after his team's comprehensive ten-wicket win over Bangladesh at Jaipur on Wednesday that his team was keen to finish as the number one team by beating the Lankans. "We want to continue the momentum. No team likes to go to the next stage of the tournament with a loss, and three (wins) in a row would be nice." Sri Lanka would be equally interested in making it ten victories in a row in ODIs starting with a very creditable 5-0 whitewash of England in the latter's backyard. The Lankans are an improved lot, a far cry from the one that visited India a season ago with Marvan Atapattu at the helm and was swamped in both Tests and ODIs, and have shown that the Mahela Jayawardene-led outfit is no pushover.
