Jayawardene century guides Lanka to win against Zimbabwe

- aussieindolanka.com

Mahela Jayawardene struck a scintillating century as Sri Lanka thumped Zimbabwe by 14 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-marred Group B match to brighten their Super Eight stage prospects in the Twenty20 World Cup here on Monday. Beaten by New Zealand in their previous outing, a win was imperative today for the Lankans who rode on Jayawardene’s masterly 64-ball 100 -- fourth century in the short history of Twenty20 Internationals -- to post 173 for seven.   Zimbabwe’s chase ran into a rain-interruption after the first over from Ajantha Mendis. Play did resume after 66 minutes with the minnows chasing a revised victory target of 104 runs from 11 overs but another weather-disruption greeted them four overs later when they were 29 for one. Consequentially the Duckworth-Lewis method was invoked and Zimbabwe were found 14 runs behind their opponents.   www.indianexpress.com/news/jayawardene-century-guides-lanka-to-win-against-zimbabwe/614471/
