Another close match for Windies, once again they finished on the losing side. It wasn't a good tournament for them except for the first match against Pakistan. They appeared as a strong side but never been able to finish the game as a victorious. 

In the match-39 against Sri Lanka, West Indies won the coin toss and chosen to bowl. Surprisingly Sri Lanka scored 338 for 6 as Avishka Fernando scored a beautiful 100 followed by 64 of Kusal Perera.

The interesting part of the game was when Nicholas Pooran batted like a real champ. Target was getting tough to achieve, but Nicholas Pooran showed some beautiful skills and mindset. He scored 118 off 103 balls and was out at a very crucial moment when Windies required 31 off 18. While looking for a boundary he was caught behind off Angelo Mathews. It wasn't really a wicket-taking ball but off balance Pooran had no option than to go after it.

Sri Lanka won the match by 23 runs and Malinga once again picked up 3 wickets. Not many games left for the Chris Gayle and Lasith Malinga. World of cricket will remember them for a very long and their services to the cricket will be miss.
