New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score - 1st ODI Match - Summary

End of Over : 49.0 SL: 326/10

So that's it from the first ODI at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. The hosts did really well with the bat as expected but what was nice to see was the response of Sri Lanka with the bat. If this game is anything to go by, we should be in for a good series. The second match will be on the 5th of January at the same ground. It will begin at 1400 local (0100 GMT). See you and till then, take care. You can now switch tabs to catch the action from the Cape Town Test where Pakistan are in all sorts of trouble after being put to bat. Cheers!

OUT! Bowled 'em! It's all over here. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 45 RUNS AND GO UP 1-0 IN THE THREE-MATCH SERIES. A perfect yorker, somewhat like giving Malinga a taste of his own medicine. The Lankan skipper can't keep it out and the ball knocks the stumps. The NZ players are elated and Malinga and Pradeep wait patiently to shake hands. Been a great performance by both teams but the Kiwis were better in the end.

48.5 0

Yorker length ball on middle, kept out by the batsman.

48.4 6

SIX! Another biggie, this time from the bat of Malinga. Short of a length ball on middle and Lasith pulls it hard over mid-wicket for a maximum. A lady in the crowd seems to have been hit by the ball, hope she's okay.

48.3 2

Dropped! Fuller outside off, Lasith Malinga lifts it towards mid off and Nicholls out there cannot take this one moving to his right. Drops it and the batsmen come back for two by the time the ball is returned.

48.2 2

Short length ball on middle. Pulled away to deep mid-wicket for a couple by Malinga on this occasion.

48.1 0

Length ball on middle and leg following the batsman, defended off the back foot with a straight bat.

End of Over : 48 6 Runs SL: 316/9
47.6 6

SIX! What a well timed shot by the no. 11 batsman. Uses the pace of Boult and lifts it over the bowler's head and all the way for six. Brought a smile to his face. Boult ends with 2/65 off 10 overs.

47.5 0

Length ball outside off, driven towards mid off by the batsman.

47.4 0

Fuller outside off, dug out towards cover by Pradeep.

47.3 W

OUT! Cleaned up the no. 10 batsman. Pacy and on target, you miss I hit stuff. Too good for Sandakan who tries to hit it through the covers. Knocks the off stump as he misses. Boult gets his second wicket and mere formalities left now.

47.2 0

Fuller length once more, Lakshan gets an inside edge as he tries to hit it on the off side. That runs to the keeper missing the leg stump by inches.

47.1 0

A play and a miss this time! Angling in from around the wicket, Sandakan goes for the swing but misses.
