West Indies downed England by 15 runs in a last-over lip-smacker, while Sri Lanka beat New Zealand in the sensational clash.
Sri Lankan opener Tillakaratne Dilshan rediscovered his lost form by playing a blistering 72-run knock against New Zealand. Skipper Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara also played the invaluable digs against kiwis and expected to carry on the momentum.
Though their all-rounders Angelo Mathews, Jeeven Mendis has not get an opportunity to demonstrate their power in the tournament so far, but are undeniably able to change the complexion of game at any instant.
Ajantha Mendis, who produced a record-breaking six-wicket haul in the tournament opener, looked lackluster against Zealand and leaked 48 from four overs taking a single wicket.
West Indies, who arrived in Sri Lanka with hot favorite tag, have vindicated the analyzers so far with their outstanding batting. As expected swashbuckling opener Chris Gayle has took the centre stage in the tournament and cracked half-centuries in the Super Eight game against England and preceding group clash against Australia.
Not only Gayle, his 23-year-old fellow Jamaican Johnson Charles also looked in hostile touch and blasted 84 off 56 balls against England. Marlon Samuels is also in outstanding from but the likes of Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell have failed to make impact so far.
Barring Ravi Rampaul, rest of West Indies pace attack has been looked ordinary in the trio games they have played. Off-spinner Sunil Narine has also failed to deliver a convincing performance so far.
