1st ODI: Sri Lanka v West Indies (Winner: No result)

   Match Scorecard  
  Sinhalese Sports Club Ground, Colombo (31 Jan,2011)

West Indies chose to bat first but turned out to be a bad idea as Gayle fell early and then after a scratch inning Bravo was run out as they struggled to 45/2 after 13 with COW of 43%. But Adrian Barath and comeback man Sarwan put their heads down and put together a 150 plus stand. Barath went on to score his maiden century. But once again the Batting Power Play proved to be the wrecker in chief as both of them fell in the first over and Pollard followed soon. This seriously dented their hopes of scoring 280+ and in the end they had to settle for 245/5 with a COW of 49%. Sri Lanka’s inning never got going with rain washing out the match.
