India v Sri Lanka



Chaminda Vaas celebrates
Vaas took the key wickets of Uthappa and Ganguly
Sri Lanka's spearhead Chaminda Vaas says his team can go all the way in this World Cup after their crushing win over India in Trinidad.

India face elimination from the tournament after succumbing to a 69-run defeat by the inspired Sri Lankans.

Vaas, who finished with 2-39, said: "I think we have a very good chance."

"The team is playing with good unity at the moment. The batsmen are doing really well and the bowlers are doing their job too."

Vaas took the key early wicket of Robin Uthappa before then dismissing dangerman Sourav Ganguly.

He said afterwards: "I just bowled line and length - I knew that the batsmen would go after it, so I just concentrated on doing the basics.

"I did use some variations for few balls, but I knew it was all about keeping it in the good areas and sticking to my basics.

"I have been playing for quite a while so I know my line and length. I'm happy with the way I'm playing and I hope to continue that good form into the Super 8 stage.

"Being a fast bowler you have to get wickets - early breakthroughs are good for the team, and then you can capitalise on that start."
