Group 1: Hosts Lanka Feast on West Indies

Sri Lankan bowlers made West Indies big hitters look like a bunch of blind-hitters who did not know how to tackle clever bowling. With just 130 runs to chase Sri Lanka needed only the three oldies of tournament to bat. Captain Mahela and Sangakkara took them home in record a win with just Dilshan being back in pavillion. Narine was not effective where Mendis duo made the West Indies forget their dance on field.
