You see, Sri Lanka have played at this venue throughout the group stages, and they surely learned one thing, that is, you need spinners to take this game deep with the ball and hence they came into this game with an extra spinner. It did certainly worked in their favour, as it was the spin duo of Sineth and Vishwa who got rid of both the set-batters in Johnson and Wedderburn in a span of 8 deliveries. Sri Lanka only conceded 25 run and picked up a wicket as well during 31-40 overs. Just the squeeze they were looking for, but eventually they could not make the most of it. Nathan Sealy played a wonderful knock coming down the order, he made sure to keep the scoreboard ticking from his end. In the end, he found an able partner in Tarrique Edward. The two ran hard between the wickets, put pressure on the opposition and then even took their side over the line to move to spot number two. Sri Lankan skipper ending up using 8 bowlers until the final over, one seamer in Dinura Kalupahana ended with a brace. He is the one who drew the first blood. The spinners were relentless in the middle overs for them. They kept probing but just could not get the better of the batters. Vishwa Lahiru, Sineth Jayawardena ended with a brace as well.
