Avishka Fernando and Dasun Shanaka scored half-centuries as Sri Lanka defeated Oman by 19 runs in the first Twenty20 encounter played at Al Amerat, Muscat yesterday. Fernando hit a top score of 83 not out and Shanaka remained unbeaten on 51 as Sri Lanka recovered from an early setback to post a competitive 162 for four after they were put into bat. In reply, Oman were in real trouble from the beginning as they lost half of their side for 54 runs shortly after the half way stage of the innings. Nuwan Pradeep and Lahiru Kumara rocked the home side with some superb hostile bowling before Mohammed Nadeem and Ayaan Khan avoided further disaster.
