Windies blown away
HAMBANTOTA, Sri Lanka – Avishka Fernando and Kusal Mendis belted hundreds as an uninspired West Indies suffered their heaviest-ever defeat to Sri Lanka in yesterday’s second one-day international.
The loss meant they have conceded the three-match series and extend their disappointing record of never having won a series on Sri Lankan soil.
Captain Kieron Pollard had a poor game. He dropped an easy catch from Mendis and had a first-ball duck.
Asked to complete their highest-ever successful chase in pursuit of 346 at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, West Indies crumbled for 184 in the 40th over, to surrender by 161 runs and fall 2-0 behind in series. (CMC)
