ICC World Cup Cricket Match 2007

Ireland vs Sri Lanka

Super 8, Match 21, SL vs IRL: Sri Lanka bowls down Ireland

Sri Lanka Cricket team Ireland Cricket team Sri Lanka cruised to an eight-wicket win over Ireland in the teams' last World Cup Super 8s match on Wednesday, easily passing a lowly victory total. Sri Lanka, which had already been assured of its place in the semifinals for almost a week, bowled out Ireland for a tournament low 77 before reaching 81-2 with 40 of its 50 overs to spare.
Opener Upal Thuranga fell in the opening over of Sri Lanka's reply at Grenada National Stadium. But Sanath Jayasuriya and Mahela Jayawardene shared an unbroken third-wicket stand of 56 to seal the result.
Farveez Maharoof and Muttiah Muralitharan (4-19) had each taken four wickets for Sri Lanka, with Maharoof's haul of 4-25 including the top four batsmen and three wickets in four balls. Ireland's total was the lowest of the tournament, replacing the 78 Bermuda managed against Sri Lanka in the first round. It was also the sixth lowest total in tournament history. However, Ireland's players took a well-deserved lap of honour after completing a first World Cup campaign that shocked everyone by stretching into the Super 8s.

Super 8, Match 21, SL vs IRL: Sri Lanka take on resurgent Ireland

Sri Lanka Cricket team Ireland Cricket team Sri Lanka could rest at least one of their still potent but now aging bowlers Chaminda Vaas and Muttiah Muralitharan for their final Super Eights match against Ireland on Wednesday.
Left-arm swing bowler Vaas, 33, and off-spinner Muralitharan, who turned 35 on Tuesday, sat out Monday's seven-wicket defeat by defending champions Australia. Their absence helped to spoil the match as a contest and prompted speculation that they had been deliberately sidelined to keep them away from the Australian batsmen before a possible Australia-Sri Lanka final in Barbados on April 28.
Australia are on course for a semi-final in St Lucia next Wednesday against the fourth-placed side in the second round while Sri Lanka look certain to meet New Zealand in Jamaica on the previous day. Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene defended his decision to rest two of the bowlers who were instrumental in winning the 1996 World Cup and said it had not been a tactical ploy. He said Muralitharan had been suffering from a groin strain while Vaas had missed the World Cup warm-up matches because of a sore hamstring. Sri Lanka team (from): U Tharanga, S Jayasuriya, K Sangakkara (Wicket Keeper), M Jayawardene (Captain), C Silva, T Dilshan, R Arnold, F Maharoof, C Vaas, M Muralitharan, D Fernando, L Malinga, N Kulasekara, M Bandara, M Atapattu.
Ireland team (from): W Porterfield, J Bray, E Morgan, N O'Brien (Wicket Keeper), K O'Brien, T Johnston (Captain), A White, D Langford-Smith, A Botha, K McCallan, B Rankin.
