‘Magnificently finished, what a hit this is, he can run all the way to the dressing room, have a look at the Sri Lankan players as they come out, what a finish to this contest, what a shot from Kapugedara. Jayawardena stretched out to the Centre, the Sri Lankan supporters celebrate, they are almost but certain in the semifinals. The West Indies disappointed, the Indians dejected, it is Sri Lanka that pulled it off in the final ball. They win the contest, get the two points, and now almost into the semifinals’.
That was the voice of the Current Indian head coach and former commentator Ravi Shastri when Chamara Kapugedara whacked Nehera out of the park to take the Lions almost into the semifinals.
