    APPEAL! Scott Kuggeleijn to Wanindu Hasaranga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Santner, appeal made for Run Out. The batsman turns quickly knowing he wants the two. The big dive means that he is safe and closes out the innings. The spinners did the real damage for New Zealand and Sri Lanka are sure to use the same tactic. The Kiwi spinners were backed up well by Scott Kuggeleijn and Tim Southee with some really skillful bowling. Overall, a score that is well under par by Sri Lanka but this is not an easy pitch to bat on and they have the bowlers that will suit it. New Zealand will still be favourites, though

  • 18.1

    Tim Southee to Wanindu Hasaranga. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump moves in front driving, mis-timed in the air under control to deep cover for 1 run, dropped catch by de Grandhomme. The slower ball does for the batsman, he cannot generate any power on the ball and chips the ball into the cover region. Colin de Grandhomme comes steaming in off the boundary and gets to the ball with a dive. His momentum has taken him too far and the ball hits the heel of his hands and bounces away. Southee hangs his head in dismay

    OUT! Bowled. Scott Kuggeleijn to Akila Dananjaya. Slower length ball, to leg no foot movement dropped, missed to. Kuggeleijn just seemed a bit too quick and skiddy for Dhananjaya. His feet and hands were well apart and the ball goes through the gap and hit the off stump, only taking one bail off

Udana turned down the second run in the previous ball but this time is intent on getting the second. Hasaranga was not interested and sent him back. He ends up being run out without even being in the frame but some poor communication brought his downfall

    OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Santner to Lahiru Madushanka. Quicker length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Pushed through flatter and quicker by Santner and he plays all around his front pad. He thinks about reviewing it but his partner sends him on his way. The replay suggests that that was a good decision

    OUT! L.B.W. Lakshan Sandakan to Seth Rance. Googly half volley, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. Sandakan changes the angle and gets the reward first ball, hitting Rance on the pad and New Zealand do not have a review. What a performance by Sri Lanka and their captain Lasith Malinga in particular. It needed something magic for them to win this game and he pulled it out of the bag, becoming the first man to take 100 T20I wickets. A comprehensive victory by Sri Lanka with only Tim Southee showing any fight in the run chase. Very positive signs for Sri Lanka moving forward in international cricket
