Sri Lanka thump India, enter final

63

Harare: A sloppy India crashed out of the cricket tri-series after Sri Lanka, riding on Dinesh Chandimal’s maiden century, thumped them by six wickets in a crucial one dayer here onย  June 5.

Tottering on the brink of disaster after their back-to-back defeat against Zimbabwe, India badly needed to win this match with a big margin to keep alive their final hopes but they could not pull off a repeat performance of their previous encounter with the Lankans and went down with 1.4 overs to spare.

Chandimal’s (111) 118-ball knock, which included six fours and five sixes, knocked the stuffing out of India’s feeble bowling attack as Sri Lanka cruised to 270 for four in 48.2 overs.
