Jayasuriya, Mendis emerge on top

July 07, 2008 15:20 IST

Sanath Jayasuriya's blazing knock of 125 saw Sri Lanka register a comprehensive 100-run victory over India in the final of the Asia Cup in Karachi on Sunday.

Jayasuriya's second century of the tournament also saw him finish as the highest scorer in the tournament with a tally of 378 in five matches at an average of 75.60. India's Suresh Raina finished a close second, with 372 runs in six matches at 74.40.

Sri Lanka's latest spin sensation Ajantha Mendis, who claimed a mesmerising six-wicket in the final, emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 17 wickets in five matches at an average of 8.52. His senior spin partner Muttiah Muralitharan, finished with 11 wickets in five matches.

Rajneesh Gupta presents a detailed statistical analysis of the tournament.
