Sri Lankan openers crush England bowling

Sri Lanka 0/231 (39,3 ov, T Dilshan 108*,U Tharanga 102*) beat England 6/229 (50 ov, J Trott 86, E Morgan 50) by 10 wickets: CWC 2011 quarter final#4 at Colombo. Sri Lanka qualify for semi finals, England eliminated from tournament.

After some ragged fielding and steady bowling by Sri Lanka had allowed England to post what several TV and radio commentators thought was a competitive score, Tillakaratne Dilshan 108*/115b (2x6, 10x4) and Upul Tharanga 102*/122b (1x6, 12x4) chased it down with panache and considerable disdain for the bowling.

Here is the Scorecard

And here (at least for the immediate future) the video highlights:
