Tharanga outshines Bravo to lead SLC XI to two-wicket win

Former Sri Lanka ODI captain Upul Tharanga upstaged Darren Bravo of West Indies to lead Sri Lanka Cricket XI to a two-wicket win in a one-day warm-up match played at the P Sara Oval yesterday.

Tharanga leading Sri Lanka Cricket XI helped his side recover from losing the first two wickets for one run in Sheldon Cottrell’s opening over to chase down West Indians’ tall score of 282, reaching 283-8 in 47.3 overs to win with 15 balls to spare.

Tharanga struck 16 fours and a six in his 124-ball knock for 120 and figured in a match-winning stand of 198 with another former Sri Lanka one-day cricketer Asela Gunaratne who made 64 off 75 balls inclusive of seven fours.
