Sri Lanka keep clean slate, reach semis
June 16, 2009Man of the Match Ajantha Mendis' three-wicket spell of 3-0-9-3 took the wind out of New Zealand’s run chase, as the Black Caps collapsed 48 runs behind the victory target of 159, earning Sri Lanka a place in the semi-final with their third straight victory in the Super Eights group stages. They topped Group F.
Kiwis, the pre-tournament favorites, only beat Scotland and Ireland and lost to semi-finalists South Africa and West Indies, to exit before the semis. Captian Vettori said a South Africa v Sri Lanka final at Lord's on Sunday looked to be on the cards.
