Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - Sri Lanka vs West Indies, Match 39, ICC World Cup 2019, Chester-le-Street

Who'll play for pride better?

Stokes. Cottrell. Maxwell. Jadeja. And Fabien Allen has marched through into this list of catching stunner. He goes a step better, takes it off his own bowling -- diving one-handed, airborner in sending Kusal Mendis back.

When you define what slipping under the radar is, use this stand as your example. Both Mendis and Fernando are people you'd sell your house to watch, but they've quietly been doing it for the team now .. rebuilding, and rebuilding more.

Sheldon Cottrell's salute isn't limited to only his wickets. He'll use them even when he gets to run someone out.

Oh madness. First Kusal Perera gets some real gifts of freebies to smash all around the park. Then he is put down in the simplest of circumstances at the boundary. But he's had it -- he's out there to return the favour, and takes matters into his own hands -- charging out for a second run that was never there, waits in the middle of the pitch and MAKES SURE he's run out. Ahh, nice, the barter system is still alive!

Well, well, well. It's no hidden secret that the umpires and West Indies don't seem to be on the same page. So when Holder doesn't get an LBW in his favour, he KNOWS he HAS to review. And he does .. only to watch the ball-tracking missing the stumps. Hmmm.

Drinks #1: Sri Lanka - 93/1 (15.2 overs). Decent.

They needed something special -- and it's a short-wide sitter that produces that for the West Indies. Karunaratne looks to crash, or rather do unleash a Perera of his own, but nah, ends up nicking it rather tamely through to the keeper.

Well, it's been a one-way joy-ride. No fuss. And already a CRR of six. Kusal Perera, while having all his fun, has a fifty to himself. He's been by far the most fun Lankan batsman to watch by a country mile -- 38 balls | 7 fours.

Such has been Sri Lanka's powerplay 1:51-3 NZ79-0 Afg87-0 Aus48-2 Eng49-0 WI

The openers are off, kicking. A few of drives, some cuts and lot of positive aggression. This wicket is an absolute belter, and the bowling has been rather generous -- you know, the half volley kind.

Durham is England's Wellington. It's so damn windy that the camera guys are having some real problems in well, stopping themselves from flying away. Right, just to summarize, here are the changes -- IN (WI): Shannon Gabriel | OUT (WI): Kemar Roach .. IN (SL): They have three of them, and even Karunaratne doesn't remember.

Okay, the Windies are bowling. Meanwhile, as you wait, here's the bbb, here's the preview, and here's the shock of a breaking news.

West Indies gave up on the night Carlos Brathwaite almost asked us to remember his name again. All he needed was a couple of centimeters and we would've been good. But no, Boult and his antics at the boundary, were just too good.

Match #39 -- Chester-le-Street: Everything, like with life, has now come down to pride. Hello, we're in for the the first official fully dead rubber of the tournament, where anything, anyhow, will make no difference. Yesterday ruined it all for Sri Lanka. They had their hopes on India, and rightly so, given the brand of cricket they'd played all tour. But England found their earlier brand, and India, a brand nobody was particularly a fan of.
