Sri Lanka return to winning ways
London: Sri Lanka secured their first victory on English soil this season with a crushing 128-run win over Kent in a one-day match at Canterbury on Friday.
The tourists made 301 for seven in their full 50 overs after losing the toss, Angelo Mathews top-scoring with 51 in an innings where Lahiru Thirimanne (49) and Dinesh Chandimal (47 not out) also made significant contributions.
In reply, Kent were bowled out for just 173 inside 37 overs with seamer Suranga Lakmal (three for 16), leading an attack where Thisara Perera and Ajantha Mendis also took three wickets each.
Sri Lanka next play Sussex at Hove on Sunday before facing England in a lone Twenty20 international and five-match one-day series starting next week.
