Sri Lankan Win

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka () -- Aravinda de Silva hit a brilliant unbeaten century, his sixth in one-day cricket, to steer Sri Lanka to a comfortable six-wicket win over Zimbabwe in the Singer world series tournament Tuesday.


The win ensured the World Cup champions finished at the top of the league standings in the four-nation limited-overs tournament and qualified for Saturday's final.


Sri Lanka must wait until Thursday's clash between Australia and India to find out who will meet them in the final. Both teams have two points from two games.


De Silva maintained his outstanding form in this tournament and took his aggregate to 259 in three innings without being dismissed once. It puts him in line for the player-of-the series award, a choice between a luxury car and a jeep.
