Commentary

So what a game we have had, with Sri Lanka winning it in a Super Over after the match was tied. It was just what the designers had in mind when they conjured up T20, a great hard, fast surface, big hitting, boundaries aplenty, the tightest of finishes and then a bit of extra drama to finally separate these sides. Tillakaratne Dilshan took the Man of the Match award for his innings that should have taken Sri Lanka over the line, he couldn't quite finish it off but his side prevailed in the end.

But no time to catch our breath because we're straight off to live coverage of the second game of the night, England playing West Indies. Phew, see you tomorrow...

Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill have found some gear and are coming out to face Lasith Malinga...

New Zealand need 14 to win if it's another tie, it will go to boundary countback over the entire duration of the match, so including the Super Over...there's delay while New Zealand retrieve their kit, it may be back on the bus! There's another game to come remember on this ground...

Dilshan is the new batsman, if Sri Lanka lose another wicket the innings is over

So a wait to find out which three batsman are going to be nominated for Sri Lanka and, of course, which bowler is going to send down the six deliveries...Jayawardene and Perera are going to bat, Dilshan has also got his gear on in the dugout...Tim Southee looks like he's going to bowl...

END OF OVER:
20 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | SL: 174/6

What drama! Everything we've been waiting for in this tournament has suddenly come alive tonight, fabulous, crazy cricket...so now we have a Super Over, and the rules are...Sri Lanka to bat first because they were the chasing team...one over each, two wickets per team...

Southee to Thirimanne, OUT, slap into the off side off an inside edge, easy run out at point surely to the non-striker's end but I think Taylor dropped the ball, he did! Taylor dropped it and Sri Lanka have won!! But no!! On the replay the ball has deflected off Taylor's hand and deflected into the stumps!!! Amazing stuff so New Zealand have effected the run out and this is going to be a Super Over...so much checking to see what actually caused the bails to come off but it looks as if it was ball...here comes the third umpire...it's OUT!!!

So now just a single to win it...surely the field comes right up...run whatever...

Southee to Thirimanne, FOUR runs, full and wide, goes for the ramp and this time pulls it off! What a shot, picked it up from well outside off and it sails over short long leg

Five from two...

Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full ball on leg stump, dug out through midwicket for...just a single as the fielder scrambles well off the rope

Six to win...

19.2

Southee to Thirimanne, 1 run, full outside off, goes for the ramp and gets it off the toe of the bat in the air towards short long leg, doesn't get it at all and it falls short of the fielder

Seven to win from five balls...

19.1
1
Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full and cracked out to cover, well fielded

So eight to win and Southee again to bowl around the wicket...
