England pastes Sri Lanka

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh — Alex Hales cracked a career-best 116 not out as England ran down Sri Lanka by six wickets with four balls to spare in another gripping World Twenty20 match yesterday.

Hales 64-ball knock, the first century of the tournament, earned England’s highest chase win in a T20 as they zoomed to 190-4 in response to Sri Lanka’s daunting 189-4.

After Sri Lanka had England 0-2, Hales and Eoin Morgan combined for a record third-wicket stand of 152. Morgan made a rapid 57 off 38 balls.

Nuwan Kulasekara grabbed a career-best 4-32 in his four overs.

Also, South Africa overcame a spirited Netherlands team to beat them by six runs. The Netherlands raised the prospect of another upset but was finally bowled out for 139 in response to South Africa’s 145-9.
