Sri Lanka Cricket team Ireland Cricket teamThe Irish team who played against Sri Lanka today were a far cry from the team that lost by 83 runs to New Zealand earlier in the tournament. Dilshan, Sri Lanka's star batsman was out for a duck in the second ball of the match, caught by Niall O' Brien off a ball by Boyd Rankin. Sangakkara was out (c N O'Brien b Johnston) in the third over for only 3 runs. Alex Cusack took 4 wickets for Ireland in 3 overs, conceding only 18 runs. Jayasuriya (27) and Jayawardene (78) steadied the Sri Lankan innings and set the Ireland team a target of 145 runs in 20 overs. Porterfield and Niall O' Brien laid the foundation of the Irish innings taking 31 runs each. Sri Lanka failed to take any wickets till the 10th over when Porterfield was caught by Sangakkara off a ball by Muralitharan. Ireland's run rate declined steeply after Ajantha Mendis took down both the O'Brien brothers in the 14th over. Needing 18 runs from the last over, Ireland was able to get only 8 runs and their final score was 135/7.

With this defeat, Ireland are eliminated from progressing further in this World Twenty20 tournament. Sri Lanka will play against New Zealand on Tuesday, June 16th at trent Bridge and Ireland will face Pakistan tomorrow at Kennington Oval in their final match.
