Maheesh Theekshana403518.7572210
0.4 to FH Allen, got him! Bowled neck and crop. Theekshana flicks his fingers across the seam, this one swerves back in after landing outside off, Allen backs away to cut but is beaten by the skid on the delivery as the off-stump takes a knock. Massive, massive wicket.. 2/1
Kasun Rajitha402325.75163012
3.6 to KS Williamson, gets him driving, gets him nicking. Williamson throws his hands at a length ball that nips away off the seam, no feet movement as he goes through with the drive, ends up getting the thinnest of nicks through to the keeper. Un-Williamson like that shot and they're in big trouble now.. 15/3
17.1 to JDS Neesham, And strikes straight away! Pace off, off cutter angling away, and this attempted cut is chipped gently to cover.. 129/5
Dhananjaya de Silva201417.0041000
2.2 to DP Conway, got him! Conway is deceived in flight as he makes room to go inside out, Dhananjay beats him in the air, gets it to dip as well. Conway may have rushed a tad early into the shot as he lost his shape and saw his stumps knocked back. New Zealand are in early trouble.. 7/2
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402215.5091000
14.3 to DJ Mitchell, And Hasaranga strikes! It's the googly, on a better length and Mitchell just does not pick this. Goes for the big heave over long-on, but the spin takes it between bat and pad to disturb middle and leg.. 99/4
Lahiru Kumara3037112.3322221
19.4 to GD Phillips, And finally they hold on to a chance off Phillips! An all-time great T20I World Cup innings comes to an end, as Phillips looks to slash this offside but only manages to chip it high towards long off running in.. 162/6

Tim Southee411213.00180110
0.5 to P Nissanka, big appeal and gone! Nissanka's night of horror is over. Attempts a big mow across the line to a length ball angling in, misses it altogether and is hit on the back leg, right in front of middle and off. He doesn't bother reviewing.. 0/1
Trent Boult401343.25181010
1.3 to BKG Mendis, gets him with one that holds its line. Was that a cutter? It seemed like. Kusal shapes for a big booming drive but expects this to shape in which it doesn't, the ball carries on with the angle to take a thin edge as Conway gleefully accepts a simple offering.. 4/2
1.6 to DM de Silva, chops on! That is a nothing shot. Dhananjaya has no room to work with but is hell bent on dabbing it behind square, ends up getting a big inside edge that rips into the stumps. Sri Lanka in absolute disarray, their campaign on the rocks.. 5/3
3.3 to KIC Asalanka, picks out backward point! Asalanka drives uppishly to point. Went hard at that but the ball flew off the edge as it was a knuckleball that just about held on and Allen dived low to his left to take an excellent catch.. 8/4
16.6 to MD Shanaka, And Shanaka's vigil is over! This was short and he goes for the pull, but he can't get enough on it as this is taken comfortably on the deep square leg boundary.. 93/9
Lockie Ferguson403518.75114130
9.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, toe-ends a lofted his straight to mid-off, the fielder didn't have to move an inch! Right intent, wrong execution. Lockie bowls this into the pitch at 146kph, gets some lift off the pitch to hit Bhanuka high on the bat, he's unable to generate any power on the shot as a result and Williamson takes the simplest of catches.. 58/6
Mitchell Santner402125.25133000
6.1 to C Karunaratne, picks out the lone man in the deep! He opened up the off side by backing away, Santner ended up bowling short in trying to cramp him for room, Karunaratne now decides it was time to take him on with the pull without realising he was hitting it to the lone man at deep midwicket. Never mind that he was hitting it towards the shorter boundary.. 24/5
12.3 to M Theekshana, But this time it's held! Edged to slip and Theekshana is the latest to make the trudge back to the dugout. Sri Lanka on the way to a massive NRR hit here.. 65/8
Ish Sodhi3.202126.30112110
11.4 to PWH de Silva, And this might be the final nail in the Lankan coffin! A soft dismissal, as this is slapped straight to extra cover. Williamson takes it with ease.. 64/7
19.2 to CBRLS Kumara, Down the ground, goes for the big heave and gets nowhere near it. Easiest of stumpings completed, as New Zealand record a 65-run win!. 102/10
