DUBLIN: Sri Lanka beat Ireland by 136 runs to win the second one-day international at Malahide on Saturday and so take the two-match series 2-0.

After losing the toss, Sri Lanka made 377 for eight, Kusal Perera top-scoring with an ODI best 135 and Seekkuge Prasanna making 95 — his highest score at this level.

Ireland, in reply, were bowled out for 241 with five overs to spare.
