Opener Upul Tharanga struck his ninth one-day century to propel Sri Lanka to a crushing eight-wicket win over the West Indies on Thursday.

West Indies was bowled out for 203 in 50 overs after being asked to bat first by Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara at the Sinhalese Sports Club.

After a brief rain interruption, Sri Lanka was given a revised target of 197 in 47 overs under the Duckworth/Lewis method and reached it with 27 balls to spare. Tharanga was 101 not out. Sri Lanka leads the three-match series 1-0 after the first match was drawn.
