Sri Lanka Bounce Back With Huge Win Over Bangladesh

Sri Lanka responded to their defeat to Pakistan by defeating Bangladesh by 64 runs in their Super Eight Group F encounter at Johannesburg. Bangladesh bowled well to restrict their Asian rivals to 147 for 5, with five bowlers picking up a wicket and Jehan Mubarak top scoring with 31 not out before Bangladesh collapsed to 83 all out. Sanath Jayasuriya took two for 5 as Sri Lanka reignited their tournament hopes and set up what is effectively a quarter-final clash with Australia in two day's time. © Cricket World 2007
