Sri Lanka ended Ireland's hopes with a massive 133-run win in a Super Six match in the ICC World Cup qualifier, here on Sunday.
The result also clinched a place in the Super Six for Scotland and Oman, who were in action at the same time.
Dimuth Karunaratne had enjoyed knocks of 52 and 61 not out in wins over the UAE and Oman, and produced his best performance with 103 as Sri Lanka made 325 after being invited to bat.
In a tournament where big chases have come thick and fast, Wanindu Hasaranga (5/79) again made the difference with the ball, collecting a third five-wicket haul in as many matches in the 133-run win.
Ireland were all out for 192.
In the other game of the tournament, Brandon McMullen began this tournament with a five-wicket haul, and he now has a maiden ODI hundred after firing Scotland to a 76-run win over Oman.
