Mahela the marvel saves Lankan blushes
It was the marvellous century from former skipper
Mahela Jayawardena that saved the blushes for Sri Lanka and helped
them to a 14-run victory over Zimbabwe in a rain-marred ICC World
Cup Twenty20 game at the Providence Stadium in a Guyana on Monday.
New Zealand beat Zimbabwe by seven runs
New Zealand beat Zimbabwe by seven runs on the
Duckworth-Lewis system after rain stopped play when New Zealand had
scored 36 for one wicket in 8.1 overs.
Rain-marred win just Super for Windies
West Indies won through to the second round
Super Eights of the World Twenty20 after beating England by eight
wickets in a match turned on its head by rain here on Monday.
England made a challenging total of 191 for five, featuring 55 from
former Ireland batsman Eoin Morgan, after being sent in to bat by
West Indies captain Chris Gayle. But rain, which had interrupted Sri
Lanka's victory over Zimbabwe earlier here Monday, effectively
rendered that score meaningless.
