Sri Lanka after choosing to bat first were bowled out for only 188 and England took a valuable lead of almost a hundred runs in the first innings. The Lankans came back strongly in the second innings with a 100+ opening partnership and then came Sanga to lead the innings forward with a very valuable 152 runs knock, in the process he hit 19 splendid boundaries which were really a joy to watch. It is also important to mention that Sangakkara socre 92 runs out of the 188 runs in the first innings which is almost half of the team runs. These brilliant knocks earned Sri Lanka a somewhat close victory and a very well deserved player of the match for Kumar.
