Nuwan Kulasekara’s five-for helps Sri Lanka Legends enter final, to meet India


Sri Lanka Legends arrange a last with India Legends within the Road Safety World Series T20 after Tillakaratne Dilshan’s outfit defeated Jonty Rhodes-led South Africa Legends by eight wickets right here on Friday.

Sri Lankans romped house to a snug win chasing down a 126-run goal with 16 balls to spare.

Riding No.4 batsman Chinthaka Jayasinghe’s 47 not out (25b, 8×4, 1×6) and southpaw Upul Tharanga’s unbeaten 39 (44b, 5×4), Sri Lanka completed at 129/2 in 17.2 overs. Captain Dilshan scored 18 and Sanath Jayasuriya, too, acquired as many runs.

Earlier, Dilshan received the toss and elected to discipline and the Lankans bowled out South Africans for a paltry 125.

Seamer Nuwan Kulasekara was the wrecker-in-chief for the Sri Lankans as he returned figures of 5/25.

For South Africa, opener Morne van Wyk starred with a half century from 57 balls, together with eight boundaries.
