MIRPUR (BANGLADESH), March 3 (PTI): In-form Sri Lanka sailed into the summit clash of the Asia Cup cricket tournament with a resounding 129-run victory over minnows Afghanistan, here today.

Opting to bat, the islanders rode on Kumar Sangakkara�s patient 76 and skipper Angelo Mathews� breezy 41-ball 45 to post a competitive 253/6 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

In reply, Afghanistan were bundled out for 124 in 38.4 overs, sealing Sri Lanka�s place in the final of the five-nation continental tournament, and further diminishing India�s chances.
