CAN v SL, T20 Match 6: Sri Lanka edge out Canada

Rizwan Cheema's defiance at the top of the Canada order failed to prevent Sri Lanka from recording a 15-run in the Twenty20 quadrangular series on Sunday.
Opener Cheema hit 68 off 44 balls - including four fours and six sixes - but Canada nevertheless fell short of Sri Lanka's total of 153 for seven from their 20 overs. Ajantha Mendis and Dilhara Fernando combined to help dismiss Canada for 138 after 20 overs, the former taking four wickets - including that of Cheema - and Fernando three.
Balaji Rao had done his best to stem Sri Lanka's scoring early on with three wickets but a series of solid cameos - the most effective of which came with Mahela Jayawardene's 35 off 21 balls - meant Canada were always facing a stiff task. The Canadian batsmen failed to follow Cheema's example, with the hosts' second-highest score coming from Sunil Dhaniram, who hit 16.
