Sri Lanka bowled out the Netherlands for the lowest total in Twenty20 International history in a one-sided World T20 contest in Chittagong.

The Dutch were skittled out for 39 in 10.3 overs, with Angelo Mathews and Ajantha Mendis picking up three wickets apiece.

The 2009 and 2012 runners-up polished off the total in just five overs to pick up their second victory in Group 1 and considerably boosted their net run rate in the process.

Only Tom Cooper got into double figures as the Associate Nation received a harsh wake-up call at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium after their heroics against Ireland on Friday.

The Netherlands chased down 190 in 13.5 overs to eliminate the Irish but had no answer to the seam of Mathews and Nuwan Kulasekara with the new ball, as they slumped to 1-3.

Mathews picked up a third wicket before Cooper was run out for 16.

The Dutch could not deal with the unorthodox Lasith Malinga, who picked up two quick wickets, or mystery spinner Mendis. They lost their final five wickets for six runs in 13 balls.

Netherlands: 39 all out (10.3 overs)
