first_imgIN a low-scoring final One-Day match between the Windies ‘A’ and Sri Lanka ‘A’ at the Trelawny Multiplex in Jamaica, it was the bowling of Sheldon Cottrell that made all the difference.Deciding to bat, the Windies were skittled out for just 152 but returned to obliterate Sri Lanka for just 107.Shamarh Brooks, 35, Andre McCarthy, 27, and Sunil Ambris, 20, were the main scorers for the Windies, who were devastated by the bowling of Vimukthi Perera, 4-25.Perera was well supported by Lahiru Kumara, 2-30, and Shehan Madusanka, 2-35. There was also a wicket for Amila Aponsu, 1-25.In response, Cottrell was even more devastating, grabbing 4-19. Kyle Mayers had 3-24, while Rahkeem Cornwall bagged 2-23 and Odean Smith had 1-15 to leave the Sri Lankans well short.Only Nipun Karunanayake offered any support for the Sri Lankans, scoring a patient 47 from 113 deliveries until Cottrell had him caught by Cornwall to be the last man out in the 39th over.The Windies lost an opportunity to even the series on Friday when rain left play impossible at Sabina Park, this after Sri Lanka clipped the first encounter, winning another low-scoring affair by two wickets. Cottrell was again in the thick of things, grabbing 4-44 in the losing effort.WEST INDIES AM Hodge c wkp Weerakkody b Perera 1R Cornwall c Silva b Perera 18S Brooks c wkp Weerakkody b Perera 35S Ambris run out 20A McCarthy c wkp Weerakkody b Kumara 27J Campbell c wkp Weerakkody b Kumara 8*+J Hamilton b Aponsu 19K Mayers c Hasaranga b Madusanka 3S Cotterell b Madusanka 0O Smith b Perera 9R Beaton not out 0Extras (lb2, w9, nb1) 12TOTAL (all out, 44.1 overs) 152Fall of wickets: 1-19, 2-22, 3-63, 4-93, 5-115, 6-122, 7-129, 8-129, 9-152, 10-152.Bowling: Perera 9.1-0-25-4, Kumara 8-0-30-2, Madusanka 8-2-35-2, Aponsu 8-1-25-1, Jayasuriya 10-1-31-0, de Silva 1-0-4-0.SRI LANKA A+S Weerakkody b Cottrell 6N Karunanayake c Cornwall b Cottrell 47R Silva b Cottrell 3*D de Silva c wkp Hamilton b Smith 3C Asalanka c Campbell b Cornwall 10W Hasaranga lbw b Cornwall 0S Jayasuriya c Cornwall b Mayers 13S Madusanka b Mayers 0A Aponsu c Cornwall b Mayers 2V Perera c Campbell b Cottrell 13L Kumara not out 2Extras (lb4, w4) 8TOTAL (all out, 38.3 overs) 107Fall of wickets: 1-8, 2-12, 3-28, 4-53, 5-53, 6-68, 7-68, 8-80, 9-102, 10-107.Bowling: Cottrell 8.3-2-19-4, Beaton 9-0-22-0, Smith 3-0-15-1, Cornwall 10-2-23-2, Mayers 8-0-24-3.Player-of-the-Match: Sheldon Cottrell.last_img
