    cruise

    An unbeaten 115 by Jayawardene and a 4-wkt haul by Murali help Sri Lanka cruise into the WC final.

    What does `cruise' mean in this sentence?

    Please explain it.

    Re: cruise

    The verb cruise suggests movement at a constant speed. So, in this context it suggests an easy, unobstructed movement into the finals.
