Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets (with 60 balls remaining)
28 December 2006 (50-over match)
  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Vaas 10 20 16 1 1 62.50
4.6 lbw! Vaas finally gets one but it's McCullum and not Astle, who's been struggling more against the inswing. This one pitched on off stump, McCullum got his foot across and the ball hit him on the pad soon after pitching, the shape back into the right-hander ensured that it was heading for middle, umpire Steve Davis is convinced 18/1
View dismissal NJ Astle run out (Jayasuriya) 83 119 87 8 2 95.40
28.4 Jayasuriya to Taylor, oh boy, he's gone! Tossed up outside off stump, Taylor comes forward and drives back down the ground, the ball ricochets off Jayasuriya's fingers onto the stumps and Astle, who's backed away some distance, is caught short by about six inches, and his great innings comes to an end 169/2
LRPL Taylor not out 128 191 133 12 4 96.24
View dismissal PG Fulton c †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 24 31 29 1 0 82.75
38.2 gone! Quicker delivery outside off stump, pitches a fraction shorter and spins the other way, Fulton gets into position to cut quickly but doesnt time it well, and Sangakkara does very well to snaffle the thin underedge, Murali strikes 222/3
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Jayawardene b Vaas 5 11 11 0 0 45.45
41.3 Vaas doesnt waste time in striking! Fullish ball outside off stump, a tad slower too, and all Vettori can do is chip it in the air to Jayawardene at cover 229/4
View dismissal JAH Marshall lbw b Vaas 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
41.4 and he lasts one delivery, would you believe it?!? Fullish delivery on middle and leg, the Vaas special, Marshall shuffles and falls over as he plays across the pads, he's rapped in front, the Sri Lankans ask the question and umpire Davis shoots up the dreaded finger 229/5
View dismissal HJH Marshall c †Sangakkara b Fernando 17 22 17 2 0 100.00
45.5 gone! Fullish this time on the stumps, Marshall gets under it and attempts the lofted straight drive, but the ball's slower and he's way too soon into the shot, the ball pops up in the air for some time and Sangakkara takes a simple catch behind the stumps 257/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin b Malinga 2 4 3 0 0 66.66
46.5 but that one's smack on target! Fires in the reverse-swinging yorker on off stump, Franklin doesnt pick and plays at the wrong line, and has his stumps rearranged! Express delivery from Malinga 262/7
View dismissal AR Adams b Malinga 3 8 5 0 0 60.00
48.5 bowled! Fullish on off stump, again Adams backs away and exposes the stumps, looking to open up on the off side, but the pace is too good for him, he misses, and his off stump goes for a walk! Typical you-miss-I-hit dismissal, which Malinga is all too eager to remind Adams 280/8

View dismissal WU Tharanga c †McCullum b Franklin 68 107 73 9 0 93.15
24.2 oh ho, another wicket! That was a good, quick delivery, tight outside off stump, and Tharanga just stands there and plays at it, getting an outside edge that a gleeful McCullum accepts, thats two in two balls 201/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Fulton b Franklin 111 105 82 12 5 135.36
24.1 his reign comes to an end! A good length outside off stump, up on his toes he goes, and uppercuts it over backward point and finds the fielder on the ropes, who takes a few steps in and pouches the catch 201/1

View dismissal KC Sangakkara c & b Vettori 36 47 41 5 0 87.80
35.6 tame dismissal! Tossed up, tantalizingly, rolling the fingers over the seam, getting the ball to stop in the air, and Sangakkara gets a step down the track, looking to flick it away, but chips it back to Vettori 271/3
