Sri Lanka maintained their unbeaten record at the Cricket World Cup Qualifier as Pathum Nissanka's hundred helped secure an eight-wicket victory over the West Indies on Friday.
Dutch captain Scott Edwards said Bas de Leede deserved to be immortalised by a statue after his magnificent all-round performance secured The Netherlands the final spot in the Cricket World Cup on Thursday.
Former West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said the team had reached their lowest point after failing to qualify for the 50-overs World Cup for the first time, but signs of their decline have been evident for a while now.
Dhananjaya made 93, his best ODI score, to help Sri Lanka recover from 96 for six to make 213. And Theekshana then took three wickets in the space of two overs to derail the Dutch chase in a 21-run victory.
