Americas,Barbados,Sports, Sat, 28 Apr 2012 IANS

Lucas Street (Barbados), April 28 (IANS/CMC) Sri Lanka held their nerve to beat the West Indies by one wicket with two balls to spare in a thrilling finish to the second One-Day International (ODI) here.


Sent in at the Windward Cricket Club Friday, the West Indies scored 197 for nine off their 50 overs with Shemaine Campbelle top-scoring with 56 and Juliano Nero chipping in with 45.



Off-spinner Shashikala Siriwardena was the best bowler with three for 27 while seamers Sripali Weerakkody (2-36) and Chamani Seneviratne (2-38) were among the wickets.



Sri Lanka were propelled by Yashodha Mendis's 51 while Shashikala Siriwardena got 34, but Sri Lanka found themselves struggling late in the innings.



But Seneviratne showed her all-round worth, punching a breezy, unbeaten 36 from 34 balls to steer Sri Lanka home.



The series is now tied 1-1 with the final match scheduled for Sunday at the same venue.



Brief scores:



West Indies 197 for nine off 50 overs (Shemaine Campbelle 56, Juliano Nero 45, Shanel Daley 24, Merissa Aguilleira 21; Shashikala Siriwardena 3-27, Sripali Weerakkody 2-36, Chamani Seneviratne 2-38)



Sri Lanka 200 for nine off 49.4 overs (Yashodha Mendis 51, Chamani Seneviratne 36, Shashikala Siriwardena 34; Anisa Mohammed 2-29)
