Kapugedera shines in Sri Lanka win

SRI Lanka cruised to a 2-0 series lead with a comfortable six-wicket victory over Pakistan in the second one-day international in Dambulla yesterday.

Left arm pace bowler Thilan Thushara claimed three wickets as Sri Lanka bowled out Pakistan for a below-par 168 in 47 overs. Sri Lanka made a shaky start, collapsing to 44 for three after the loss of Upul Tharanga (10), Sanath Jayasuriya (30) and Kumar Sangakkara (two), but eventually won with 6.2 overs to spare. The hosts were guided home by middle-order batsman Chamara Kapugedera, who top-scored with a stylish 67 not out from 97 balls. Thilan Samaraweera gave him solid support with 38 from 69 balls. The duo added 95 runs in an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership.
