Kapu’s last ball 6 sees Lanka gedera

May 12, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Sri Lanka qualified for the World Twenty20 semi-finals after their five-wicket last ball win over India and Australia’s six-wicket victory against the West Indies combined to send them into the last four here on Tuesday. Chamara Kapugedera’s six off the final ball saw Sri Lanka to a dramatic win after man-of-the-match Angelo Mathews and captain Kumar Sangakkara both made 46 to revive the innings after a top-order collapse. Sri Lanka, last year’s losing finalists, will now face England in Thursday’s first semi-final. India - who lost all their Super Eights matches - had to win by at least 20 runs to keep their own slim semi-final hopes alive. 163 for five Having made 163 for five, that meant restricting Sri Lanka to 143 or under.     www.dailynews.lk/2010/05/13/spo01.asp
