New Zealand keep semi-final hopes alive

Sri Lanka were picking their way delightfully into a daunting 316-run target, their openers having set the tone in a free-spirited manner, but New Zealand turned the tables in a trice

Hang on for the post-match quotes from the captains.

Sanga: "At the end of the day we have to look back and see we didnt have enough wickets in hand. Mahela and Kulasekara played superbly. We have to improve our fielding standards. We have to take responsibility at the end of the day for the mistakes."

Vettori: "The way Ryder and McCullum gave us a great start put the dressing room in good shape. We carried the momentum all the way through. IT was a fantastic pitch. Sri Lanka put a lot of pressure on us in the end. Guptill maintained a good composure and played very well. Tuffey has come back from injury and has stood up today. We can go into the game against England, knowing the wicket, knowing what we have to do and we can win that and go to semi-finals." Vettori is also the man of the match.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging. Hop on to the England v South Africa game.

Tuffey to Mendis, OUT, And it's all over. Full delivery, dragged straight to mid-on. Fine win for NZ. The group is split wide open. Sri Lanka are virtually out of this tournament. Sorrow and joy collide.

Bond to Kulasekara, SIX runs, goes for the slower one, drops it short, Kulasekara picked it up really well, waited for it to arrive before biffing it over midwicket boundary. And this is his first ODI fifty. Fighting knock
