48.4 overs: Sri Lanka 322-3 (Mathews 52, Gunaratne 34) Mathews brings up his fifty – and brings the scores level – with a glorious lofted check-drive for four off Yadav. He is just a class act, and now he has hit the winning run! That is some victory for Sri Lanka, who have equalled their biggest run-chase in an ODI. Sangawardene couldn’t have done it any better.
It was a masterful, infectious batting performance, full of skill, personality and brains. I thought Sri Lanka had no chance; I take great pleasure in being completely wrong, because this sets up a brilliant end to the group with two matches that are effectively quarter-finals: India v South Africa on Sunday and Sri Lanka v Pakistan on Monday.
