Lankans triumph

Dublin: Pacer Suranga Lakmal and Ajantha Mendis took three wickets apiece as Sri Lanka thrashed Ireland by 79 runs in the first of the two-match ODI series, here, at the Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, on Tuesday. Put in to bat, Sri Lanka rode Kulasekara and Mendis’s unbroken ninth-wicket stand of 43 to post a modest 219 for eight in 50 overs.

Thereafter, they bundled Ireland out for 140 with 61 balls to spare. Captain William Porterfield top-scored for Ireland with 37.
