In the 12th overs, they lost the wicket of Sunil Ambris for 17 runs, and after that lost wicket of Shai Hope for 51 runs in the 17th over. Roston Chase 20 runs and Nicholas Pooran 31 runs batted sensibly for quite a while, but they too got out, and West Indies were in deep trouble. The pressure of the run rate was increasing. They kept on losing wickets and, as a result, got all out for a total of 184 runs in 39.1 overs, and Srilanka won the match by 161 runs.
