Sri Lanka on Monday registered third win in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019 against West Indies at Chester-le-Street. The Lankans after a formidable batting display bowled restrictive lines before there was some recovery by Windies batsmen. The match was well set to be a thriller before Angelo Mathews removed the set batsman to guide Lanka home with ease. 

 

Earlier, batting first, the Asian side got off to a fiery start with Kusal Perera stroking it beautifully. Later, young talent Avishka Fernando joined the party. The right-handed batsman played some eye-catching shots all-around the park. He scored his maiden hundred, helping Lanka post a mammoth total of 338 runs on board.

 

In reply, West Indies started off terribly, losing two quick wickets. However, later Nicholas Pooran came to the rescue. He was joined in by another youngster Fabian Allen who played a brutal knock of 32-ball 51 runs.

 

Nicholas completed his hundred though he was removed by Angelo Mathews just at the right time. Lastly, West Indies fell short of 23 runs, awarding Lanka two points. They now have eight points in seven matches.
