Isuru Udana to Daryl Mitchell. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Rajitha. And that two gets New Zealand over the line with three balls to spare, in the end the middle over cost Sri Lanka after getting off to a great start. Taylor and de Grandhomme played exceptionally well to give New Zealand a chance, but after Taylor fell you thought Sri Lanka might have nicked it but some good batting from Santner gives New Zealand the win and a great start to the series.

Seth Rance to Isuru Udana. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off for 3 runs, overthrow by Southee, mis-fielded by Seifert, fielded by Sodhi. A great little cameo from Udana getting 15 off three balls to send Sri Lanka up to a great score of 174, Mendis the pick of the batters and Southee the pick of the bowlers, some good cricket on display here and the run chase should be interesting with the pitch giving the spinners some grip.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Good afternoon and welcome to the first T20I of the series between Sri Lanka and New Zealand, taking place at Pallekele. This is the first T20I between the two teams since January of this year where Sri Lanka lost to the Kiwis, Sri Lanka's last win against New Zealand in a T20 came five years ago, so Sri Lanka will really want to break this bad spell against New Zealand with a win today. In terms of team news for New Zealand, Tim Southee comes in to replace Kane Williamson as captain with Williamson being rested. Southee boasts a great record as captain, not losing any of his T20 matches when in charge. Trent Boult also is rested today making room for others to get some vital T20 experience ahead of the T20 World Cup. As for Sri Lanka, there are no players certain to be left out today but they might decide to leave out Kusal Mendis who has been struggling to find form of late. There could be a bit of bad weather in this game as menacing clouds begin to appear at the Pallekele Cricket Stadium which could sway the match either way depending on the toss.
