Sri Lankan batting flopped at the crucial moment to pave way for a cakewalk victory for England in the 1st Semi Final Match at Gros Islet. Batting first after winning the toss, Sri Lanka were kept down to just 128 for 6. If not for Angelo Mathews’ 58 from 45 balls, Sri Lanka were in ruins after getting reduced to 47 for 4 in 9 overs.
England eased to victory in 16 overs losing just three wickets. Kevin Pietersen was the top scorer with an unbeaten 42 from 26 balls with 3 fours and 2 sixes. The Man of the Match was Stuart Broad for his tidy spell of 4-0-21-2.
