Sri Lanka beat West Indies, enter World T20 final

DHAKA, April 3, 2014 (AFP) – Sri Lanka defeated the West Indies by 27 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method on Thursday to enter the World Twenty20 final in Dhaka. Sri Lanka await the winners of Friday’s second semi-final between India and South Africa in Sunday’s title clash. The West Indies, chasing Sri Lanka’s 160-6, were 80-4 in 13.5 overs when a heavy downpour forced the match to be abandoned, with Marlon Samuels on 18 and Darren Sammy yet to score.

Sri Lanka were declared winners of the rain-hit semi-final since the West Indies were 27 runs behind the D/L par score of 107.
