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

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

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

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! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Colin de Grandhomme. Out-swinging yorker, middle stump on the front foot working, missed to. Oh how the momentum has changed! The crowd is roaring as Malinga bowls a trademark yorker shaping away from the right handed batsman. Wild celebrations by the Sri Lankans, but wait, the umpires checking the front foot no ball, it's very tight indeed but not definitive enough to overturn, the wicket stands! A hat trick for Lasith Malinga

OUT! L.B.W. Lasith Malinga to Hamish Rutherford. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to short leg. Rutherford goes on his very first ball back in international cricket. The appeal goes up and immediately after the umpire says no, Malinga reviews and how right he was! The ball shown to be crashing into the leg stump on hawk-eye, an excellent review

OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Colin Munro. In-swinging yorker, middle stump on the front foot flick, missed to. A very high quality delivery that we only come to expect from Lasith Malinga.
