Recent Balls:

46.2 - M Henry to T Perera

Length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Boult. Finally New Zealand take a catch, Trent Boult shows them how it is done by plucking a beauty from the air with a full length dive. An unbelievable day of entertainment at Bay Oval has ended in a Black Caps victory as Sri Lanka fell short in an epic runchase by just 21 runs. The tourists looked dead and buried when they slumped to 128/7 in pursuit of 320, but then Thisara Perera unleashed in devastating fashion. He struck 13 colossal sixes, a Sri Lankan record, on his way to an insane 140 from just 74 balls. It was a maiden ODI century for the left-hander, however he'll be left feeling disappointed at the match result. The Kiwis were uncharacteristically sloppy in the field, dropping at least six or seven catches to let the visitors off the hook. Fortunately for them, their batsmen were in fine form earlier in the day to amass a total that proved just enough. Colin Munro, Ross Taylor and Jimmy Neesham all made aggressive half centuries, yet Thisara Perera's innings is the one that will live long in the memory. New Zealand take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, meaning it is just pride to play for in Nelson on Tueday.
