37th Over
Join us this evening for the day night match between South Africa and Pakistan.
Nathan McCullum named Man of the Match
Malinga's excellent 10 over spell (4/34) almost dragged Sri Lanka over the line, and he was ably supported by Eranga, Herath and Dilshan. Nathan McCulloch top scored for New Zealand with other important contributions from Guptill, and Brendan McCullum.
And that ends an extraordinary match, one completely dominated by the ball, but at no stage did batting actually look difficult, instead the quality of the bowling was extremely high.
Over 36.3: Dilshan to McClenaghan, two wides, pushed down the legside, they scamper back for a second but no need as they passed the target once they had made the first run
Over 36.3: Dilshan to Southee, one run, turned backward of square
Over 36.2: Dilshan to McClenaghan, one run, worked to square leg
Over 36.1: Dilshan to McClenaghan, no run, left alone outside off

35th Over
Over 34.6: Eranga to McClenaghan, no run, forward, solid defence. NZL 9/134 (Southee 12, McClenaghan 0)
Over 34.5: Eranga to Southee, no run, OUT, punches to mid on, calls for the single, the throw at the bowler's end misses but then hits the stumps at the batsman's end and Mills is caught short, an unbelievable dismissal. 5 runs or 1 wicket needed
