It went all too easy for Sri Lanka in the final game of the qualifiers where they beat Netherlands comprehensively by 8 wickets.

Sri Lanka sent the dutch to bat first after winning the toss and were all over them from the very beginning. They picked up six dutch batsmen within the powerplay.

It took Sri Lanka only half of the innings to bundle Netherlands for 44 only. Colin Ackerman was the only batsman to reach the double figures (11 off 9).

Hasaranga and Kumara picked 3 wickets each while Theeksana took 2.

Sri Lanka chased down the target easily on the back of Kusal Perera's 33(24), keeping 77 balls in hand. 

Lahiru Kumara became the Man of the match
