A whirlwind innings from Kumar Sangakkara coupled with a disciplined bowling performance helped Warne’s Warriors beat Sachin’s Blasters by 57 runs in the second match of the Cricket All-Stars Series at the Minute Maid Park here on Thursday.

Sangakkara smashed 70 runs off just 30 deliveries to help post a challenging total of 262/5 in their 20 overs. Andrew Symonds (4/70) and Saqlain Mushtaq (2/12) then spearheaded the Warriors’ bowling attack as the Blasters could only manage 205/8.

 

The Warriors, who had won the first match of the three-game series by six wickets on November 7, have thus taken an unassailable 2-0 lead. The final match is scheduled to be played in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Blasters’ captain Sachin Tendulkar was left to rue his decision to field as Michael Vaughan and Matthew Hayden gave the Warriors innings a blazing start.
