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.
