Match Referee

Kiwis win by 21 runs. A wonderful match, Sri Lanka should have won this match easily, but lost too many wickets in the middle overs, they lost wickets at regular intervals. Good bowling from Jeetan Patel and Bond to finish off a wonderful win. New Zealand win by 21 runs. Please join us for the final ODI on the 8th of January.
