Sri Lanka vs West Indies Live Score and Commentary

Meanwhile, Angelo Mathews took to Twitter to express his joy over the Sri Lankan win. 

With 10 runs required from the final over and Jason Holder the only recognisable batsman for the West Indies, Sri Lanka were well and truly in the game. And when Benn sent one soaring over mid-on off the third ball, the West Indies were in business. With 3 runs to win from 3 deliveries, the West Indies would have surely fancied their chances. But after Benn's dismissal, it all came down to Jason Holder. 

N Pradeep however, held his nerve and bowled a decisive yorker to Holder. And all that the West Indian could do was dig it out and scamper through for a single. Sri Lanka get away with a 1 run win and the West Indies will be dejected over run-chase gone wrong.
