Colombo, January 29, Tuesday at 10:00 AM IST
The hosts register another gigantic 202 runs win over Ireland and the scoreline now reads 4-0 with the last match scheduled to be played tomorrow morning at Colombo. Sri Lanka leads the five-match unofficial ODI series by 4-0 and would be eyeing to clean sweep the visitors with one more win.
Batting first after winning the toss, Sri Lanka posted a massive total of 353/6, courtesy A Fernando’s 139 of 118 and fifty’s from A Perera and K Mendis. In response, Ireland A mustered out for a paltry 151 in 30.4 overs falling short by a huge 202 runs margin. I Udana and Kamindu Mendis returned with three wickets each for the hosts.
The hosts have completely dominated Ireland A in all three departments throughout the tour. Ireland A has failed to secure a single win on the entire tour be it any format. It won’t be of many surprises if Sri Lanka turns out to be the winner in the last ODI tomorrow.
