Jan.28 (CRICKETNMORE) - Openers Hasitha Boyagoda and Dhananjaya Lakshan featured in a double-century stand that helped Sri Lanka defeat the Windies by three wickets in the Plate championship final of the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in Christchurch.

The 213-run partnership between Boyagoda (116, 124b, 17x4,1x6) and Lakshan (98, 119b, 12x4, 1x6) had put Sri Lanka in a position of strength to overtake the Windies’ total of 254 for five but a batting collapse made things difficult for the 2000 finalists and they ultimately won with only two balls to spare.
