The Sri Lankan cricket captain Mahela Jayawardene hit an unbeaten 65 to lead his side to a nine-wicket victory over West Indies in their World Twenty20 Super Eight match at Pallekele.

Jayawardene made little of the West Indies total of 129 for five, as he hit 10 fours and a six in his 49-ball innings which earned him man-of-the-match honours.

The Sri Lanka skipper and Kumar Sangakkara dominated in an unbroken second-wicket stand of 108 off 75 balls to surpass the West Indies total with 28 balls to spare.
