Zimbabwe v Netherlands - Action Replay

On the other hand Jayasuriya was keen on erasing the bad memory of the disaster at Nairobi against Kenya. Sri Lankan skipper played a patient knock; hardly threatening to take the cover off the ball as he usually does. Jayasuriya top-scored with an unusually subdued 66 from 99 balls that included just four boundaries. Jayasuriya was distinctly to be adjudged not out by umpire Orchard, after he had clearly nicked the ball to the wicket keeper. Arnold (34), Sangakkara (24) and Chaminda Vaas (28 off 25 balls) helped Sri Lanka to 228/6 in the 50 overs. Pedro Collins suffered at the hands of Vaas, going wicket less in his ten overs that cost him 62 runs.
