23:59 (IST)

That brings us to the end of what was turning out to be a thrilling encounter... until Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne turned to Angelo Mathews out of desperation, only for the latter to snuff out Windies' hopes by getting rid of Nicholas Pooran off his first delivery in 18 months. Props to the Windies middle order for making a match out of this, especially after the Jason Holder-led side lost their captain with just 145 on board, and there's plenty of reason for the Caribbean side to dream of a positive future with talents such as Pooran and Allen in the side. 

Time to shift our attention to the India-Bangladesh encounter that takes place tomorrow. India will hope to seal their entry into the semis tomorrow. For the Bangladeshis though, it is a matter of survival. Should be another cracker of a contest, as the recent India-Bangladesh encounters have been. For now, we bid you all goodnight! 

23:57 (IST)

Dimuth Karunaratne, Sri Lanka captain: Good win for us, gives us a lot of confidence. Players stood up at vital times. All the boys contributed. Those are the things I expect as captain. I think we were putting pressure on ourselves (in the previous games) and weren't expressing properly. If you see Avishka he batted really well. The middle order batted really well.  We knew that they are a good six-hitting side and wanted to keep the pressure on, and increase the required rate slowly. Pooran was playing really well. We have to play freely to win the match. We got some crucial run outs. Two three run outs change the game. Vandersay was leaking some runs, so had to give Mathews a couple of overs. He put his hand up and bowl the two overs. If its a crucial time he will come up for us.

23:50 (IST)

Jason Holder, Windies captain: Probably a little slow off the blocks. You can look back at this game and pinpoint a number of areas we need to work on. Felt that (SL total) was above par. Was a free-scoring wicket. Fernando played an outstanding knock. When you come out here and spend some time, you get runs. We pulled it back. We got a few wickets in the middle. We gave them 30-40 runs on the field. Too sloppy. Was always backing them (Pooran and Allen) to get us over. But threw that away. That run out (Allen) was very very crucial. You get so close. We could've done a lot better. (Youngsters performing) It's definitely promising. We've just got to do it over longer periods and need consistency. (On last game) Gotta win! 

23:46 (IST)


Fernando (translated by Kumar Sangakkara): When I went in I was really happy doing what was required from me. Very happy this hundred came in a winning cause. Happy that is hunger help his side to win game. Feels happy to make use of the opportunity. I have worked hard and developed my game and want to focus on improving my game for the country.

Angelo Mathews bowls out the final over and gives away just three runs off it as Sri Lanka win the contest by 23 runs! Cottrell and Thomas knock the ball around for singles, with the dismissal of Pooran snuffing out their chances of posting an unlikely victory. 

23:30 (IST)

The seniors have done it for Sri Lanka.  West Indies needed 31 off 18 balls when Angelo Mathews was entrusted the ball. Mind you, he hadn't bowled for seven months. Suddenly when he was called up to do the job for the team, he removed Nicholas Pooran, who was threatening to take the game away from Sri Lanka. Then Malinga. There isn't a better bowler in the world than him when it comes to death bowling. Champion. He has three wickets. Spare a thought as there were two catches dropped off his bowling.

Sri Lanka vs West Indies, LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: Angelo Mathews bowls out the final over and gives away just three runs off it as Sri Lanka win the contest by 23 runs! Cottrell and Thomas knock the ball around for singles, with the dismissal of Pooran snuffing out their chances of posting an unlikely victory.

Sri Lanka's 20-run win over England had breathed life into their inconsistent campaign but a defeat against South Africa, in the very next game, hurt their semi-finals chances.

The 1996 champions, who are seventh in the points table with six points from seven matches, need to win their final two games, and hope for favourable outcomes in the England and Pakistan's next fixtures.

With Sri Lanka's batting unit misfiring, the onus to secure favourable results has always been put on the experienced bowling attack led by veteran speedster Lasith Malinga. And with Nuwan Pradeep's exit (due to chickenpox), Sri Lanka will rely heavily on their bowling spearhead once again.

Jason Holder-led Windies, on the other hand, will look to finish on a high after being knocked out.

West Indies came into the tournament, tipped as a potential surprise package, especially after scoring 421 in the warm-up victory over New Zealand. They also started their World Cup campaign with a bang, demolishing Pakistan by seven wickets.

But since then, have gone from bad to worse. With five defeats, despite some bits of impressive cricket to them, the side has failed to hold on to their nerves in crucial junctures.

They currently occupy the penultimate spot just above Afghanistan on the points table, having crashed out of the semi-final race. But with nothing to lose, the West Indies will be playing for pride and could be unstoppable if their destructive batting line up, comprising power hitters like Chris Gayle, Carlos Brathwaite and Shai Hope, clicks.
