* The West Indies totalled a massive 4-360 and Sri Lanka could reply with only 4-169 in their 50 overs. Helped by 105 from opener Desmond Haynes, Richards made the flagging Sri Lankan bowlers suffer, none more so than Asantha de Mel whose 10 overs cost 97 runs. Ravi Ratnayake gave away 68 runs in eight overs.

* Richards scored more than half his side's 50-over total of 360, another record, and in reply Sri Lanka quickly accepted that the target was beyond them, carefully avoiding a total humiliation by plodding to 169 for four.

* Sri Lanka won the toss and skipper Duleep Mendis elected to bowl first, one of the rasher decisions in World Cup history although the early stages went reasonably well for Mendis's team.

* Desmond Haynes and Carlisle Best had put on 45 for the first wicket when Ravi Ratnayake struck twice with successive balls. Then Desmond Haynes and Viv Richards came together to plunder the Sri Lankan bowling.

* The West Indies victory was precisely the tonic Richards needed after his side's uncharacteristic loss of nerve in the two-wicket defeat by England on Friday.

* The West Indies' huge score not only surpassed Pakistan's 1983 total of 338 for five, off 60 overs, also against Sri Lanka, but more significantly it also gave an important boost to their run-rate in a case of a tie-break

* Viv Richards struck seven sixes and 16 fours in his innings, which was a record individual score for the World Cup, surpassing Indian captain Kapil Dev's 175 against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge Wells, England, four years ago.

* Viv Richards, the obvious man-of-the-match, made his 181 runs from a mere 125 balls in a display of belligerence which over-shadowed Haynes's fine century.
