West Indies 297-6 (DM Bravo 71) beat
Sri Lanka 280 (Sangakkara 56) by 17 runs
ICC Champions Trophy 2013, warm-up

West Indies held off a spirited late fightback by Sri Lanka to register a 17-run win in both sides' final warm-up match ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

Half-centuries from Darren Bravo (71), Johnson Charles (58) and Ramnaresh Sarwan (55) helped the 2004 champions reach 297 for eight before Sri Lanka were bowled out for 280 in 47 overs.

Kumar Sangakkara made a fluent 56 in reply and although Dilhara Lokuhettige hit 42 from number 10 in the order and Nuwan Kulasekara an unbeaten 40, they fell short with three overs remaining, but not before they had given West Indies a few nervy moments with some lusty hitting late on.

Ravi Rampaul, Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo all took two wickets apiece, as had Thisara Perera and Shaminda Eranga earlier in the day for Sri Lanka.
