Match Overview

The second ODI between New Zealand and Sri Lanka was one to remember. New Zealand had posted 319/7 while batting first and reduced Sri Lanka to 128/7 in reply. Thisara Perera, the superhero, struck a belligerent 140 from 74 balls to bring the visitors closer. They fell only 21 runs shorter.

New Zealand enjoyed solid contributions from Colin Munro (87) and Ross Taylor (90) with the bat. Later, Jimmy Neesham once again provided the late burst and scored 64 from 37 balls. Ish Sodhi was outstanding with the ball as grabbed three wickets. Henry and Neesham earned two wickets each.

Out of seven New Zealand wickets to fall, four were run outs. Malinga led the bowling effort from the front with two wickets. Nuwan Pradeep took the only remaining wicket. Before Thisara Perera’s great show, Gunathilaka chipped in with a 71 run knock at the top.
