Hosts Sri Lanka became the first team to qualify for the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2002 when they beat the Netherlands by 206 runs at R. Premadasa Stadium on Monday.
The Dutch, playing in only their sixth one-day international, were all out for 86 in 29.3 overs of the pool 4 match after Sri Lanka had piled up 292 for six.
The Sri Lankan innings was largely based on Vice-Captain Marvan Atapattuís sixth one-day century, which won him the Man of the Match award.
Off-spinner Muttaiah Muralitharan went on to claim Hollandís last four wickets for 15 runs.
Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by eight wickets in the opening game on September 12.
