The West Indies continued their good run of form in the World T20 after brushing aside a hapless looking Sri Lankan side by 7 wickets on Sunday.
Sammy won the toss for the West Indies and elected to field first. Brathwaite struck the first huge blow when he trapped Dilshan lbw in the 4th over for 12 from 10 balls. Chandimal was run out in the next over for 16 from 18 balls as Sri Lanka just never managed to recover from the poor start. The middle order of Thirimanne and Kapugedera both failed leaving Mathews and Perera to rebuild the innings. Perera top scored for Sri Lanka reaching 40 from 29 balls before falling victim to Bravo. Sri Lanka reached a below par 122/9 after their allotted 20 overs. Badree was magnificent with the ball in hand, ending with figures of 3/12 from his 4 overs, effectively braking the back of the Sri Lankan batting order.
The West Indies were forced to open the batting with Fletcher and Charles, as Gayle left the field with a hamstring strain during the Sri Lankan innings, and was only eligible to bat down at number 6. Fletcher took the most of his opportunity at the top of the order, and followed in the footstep of his mentor Chris Gayle, blasting 84 from just 64 balls to almost single handedly win the match for his side. Both Charles and Russell made meaningful contribution, but the innings from Fletcher was enough to get them over the line in the 19th over with 7 wickets still in hand. Vandersay was sublime with the ball in hand taking 1/11 from his 4 overs, but Fletcher was good enough to play him out and attack the lesser successful bowlers.
