Sri Lanka vs West Indies Highlights And Cricket Score 2nd Match - ODI Summary

End of Over : 39.1 WI: 184/10

That's all we have from this match! Third ODI will be a dead rubber but both teams will be going hard for a win for different reasons. Sri Lanka would love to inflict a clean sweep whereas West Indies would like to avoid the same. Do join us on 1st March at 1430 local (0900 GMT) for all the action. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!

Dimuth Karunaratne, the Sri Lankan skipper, thanks his teammates first of all. Credits Mendis and Fernando for their fantastic batting performance. Mentions how Wanindu and Sandakan were outstanding, and that the fast bowlers were good as well. On being asked about Major Perera's performance, Dimuth says that he did well with the ball and the bat as well. When asked about Mickey Arthur, their coach, Karunaratne says that is a nice guy and that he supports them at every turn. Adds that he gives them self-confidence on and off the pitch. Ends by thanking the crowd for coming out in such large numbers.

Kieron Pollard, the West Indian skipper, says that the partnership between Fernando and Mendis took the game away from them after the 2 early wickets. Adds that the ground was big and both the wrist spinners were looking for wickets taking advantage of that. On being asked whether he would like to change something from today's performance, he laughs and says everything. Adds that he is disappointed about how the team failed in crunch moments. Ends by saying that he is disappointed with his own performances today too.

Avishka Fernando is the Player of the Match. Fernando says that he is very happy with his performance and thinks that he batted really well. Adds that there was pressure at the start after the loss of 2 early wickets. Shares that they planned to construct a partnership and praises Mendis for batting so well. Ends by saying that he likes to play against the West Indies fast bowlers as he prefers pace.

Angelo Mathews is down for a quick chat. Says that he is very happy with the victory and adds that it was a convincing one for them. Credits Avishka Fernando and Kusal Mendis for the way they batted and the partnership they had and also mentions how the bowlers performed really well. On his wonderful catch, Angelo replies that he wants to contribute in every manner possible and that he has been working a lot on his fitness. On playing his 100th ODI in Sri Lanka, Mathews says he is proud and it is a very big achievement for any person to play so many matches for the country. Stay tuned for the presentation...

In pursuit, West Indies started steadily but failed to capitalize. They were completely at sea against the Lankan wrist spinners and flopped miserably. Shai Hope once again was the only batsman to present a fight but apart from him, it was a collective failure for the touring team. A thoroughly professional effort in the field by the Lankan Lions and they deserve to be 2-0 ahead in the series.

A ruthless show one can say! Although it started on a sorry note for Sri Lanka as they lost two quick wickets upfront but that was followed by a record and marathon 239-run stand between Avishka Fernando and Kusal Mendis. Both struck fabulous centuries and propelled the home team to a gigantic total. The West Indian bowling was very flat, however, Alzarri Joseph and Sheldon Cottrell bowled some good overs at the death. Their fielding though was very mediocre with plenty of catches getting dropped and granting Mendis a life when he was on 2 haunted them the most.

Thumping win for Sri Lanka! They have registered their biggest win against West Indies in ODIs to take an unsurpassable lead in the 3-match ODI series. The Lankan dressing room is all smiles and their players are celebrating in the middle.

Nuwan Pradeep to Alzarri Joseph. OUT! Pradeep strikes with a corker of a yorker. Nails it at the base of off stump, little bit of tail in the air and Joseph is late in bringing his bat down.

Nuwan Pradeep to Keemo Paul. OUT! Pradeep destroys the stumps with his back of the hand variation. He lands it on a length around off, Paul is way too early into his shot and as a result, he fails to make any connection. Wicket number 8 goes down and the end is nigh for West Indies.

Lakshan Sandakan to Keemo Paul. NOT OUT! Missing leg. Loopy full ball landing on middle and it spins in after pitching, Paul tries to flick but misses and is rapped on the pads. They appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Karunaratne takes the referral after the request from his bowler. The replays roll in and Snicko detects no involvement of bat. Ball Tracker takes time to generate... We all wait and once it comes on the screen, the ball is seen to be spinning down and missing the leg stump.
