    OUT! It's all over! Sri Lanka have been bowled out for 144 inside 17 overs. NEW ZEALAND WIN THE ONE-OFF T20I BY 35 RUNS. This one is flighted on middle and Rajitha goes for a huge one over mid-wicket, but the ball takes the top edge and goes straight up in the air. The keeper, Seifert, makes a loud call for it, comes under the ball and takes it comfortably with his big gloves. Sodhi ends with three wickets and there is jubilation amongst all the Kiwi players.

    Well outside off, Rajitha goes after it but can't connect. Wide signalled by the umpire.
  • 16.2IshSodhi to LKumara

    W
    OUT! Gone off the second ball! Kuggeleijn takes a simple catch coming in from short third man. Nine down now! Looks like SL might not last the quota of 20 overs even. Slower one this time well outside off, Kumara looks to smash it down the ground but gets a thick outside edge that goes straight to Scott. What an evening for the debutant as well.

    FOUR! Kumara uses his feet and smashes this flatter one on leg right back over the bowler's head for a boundary off the first ball he faces. Lovely shot.
  • 15.6MSantner to LMalinga

    W
    OUT! Lasith Malinga is back to the pavilion and New Zealand inching closer to the victory line. Santner bowls it wide outside off after seeing Malinga make room for himself for a slog. Malinga tries to go for it but all he manages is to find a top edge and Guptill takes a dolly at long on. The small hope that Sri Lanka had has just went down the drain here.

    FOUR! Lucky boundary for Malinga. Tossed up on middle, it finds the inside edge of the bat and moves to the fine leg fence for a boundary.

    Santner bowls it way outside off this time. Malinga has a go at it but misses. The umpire signals it as wide.

    OUT! What a brilliant review! Three reds flash and the original decision will have to be overturned and it is curtains for Shanaka and for his team, most probably. A flatter one landing on leg and the ball turns a bit. Dasun who was looking to flick misses the ball and gets rapped on the pads. Loud appeal follows but it is turned down by the umpire. Southee goes upstairs almost immediately. The Snicko is clear, and Ball Tracking shows us that the ball was pitched on line, hit in line and would have gone on to hit the top of leg. The decision is overturned, Shanaka departs! Sri Lanka in troubled waters now. Seven down, need 52 off 35 balls now.

    FOUR! Loopy delivery by Mitchell, Shanaka opens the face of the bat and helps it towards the vacant third man region for a boundary. Important boundary here for Sri Lanka.
  • 12.7LFerguson to deSilva

    W
    OUT! Cleaned him up! A fiery 147.4 kph yorker and the stumps have been disturbed! Ferguson is on fire here! Runs in hard and bowls this on the base of off stump. It is too good for Dhananjaya as he fails to keep it out. Sri Lanka are losing their way here! 61 now needed off 42 balls and the main batsmen are all back in the dugout.
