New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score - One-off I T20 Match - Summary

End of Over : 16.5 SL: 144/10

So that't that, folks! 1-0 in the Tests, 3-0 in the ODIs, 1-0 in the only T20I! Sri Lanka have finished the tour without a win. They did play well in patches but patches aren't enough to win games or series'. Looking forward though, New Zealand welcome the mighty Indians for a limited overs tour and Sri Lanka travel to the island of Australia for another tough tour. It has been lovely bringing you the coverage of this tour. Join us for the upcoming games as well. As of now, lots of cricket is going on! Switch tabs to follow the final Test between South Africa and Pakistan, where the hosts are batting first at Jo'burg or if you want more exciting and faster T20 action, switch tabs to the BBL where the Melbourne Stars have been set a target of 179 by the Adelaide Strikers. Adios from here! Take care!

OUT! It's all over! Sri Lanka have been bowled out for 144 inside 17 overs. NEW ZEALAND WIN THE ONE-OFF T20I BY 35 RUNS. This one is flighted on middle and Rajitha goes for a huge one over mid-wicket but the ball takes the top edge and is straight up in the air. The keeper, Seifert makes a loud call for it, comes under the ball and takes it comfortably with his big gloves. Sodhi ends with three wickets and there is jubilation amongst all the Kiwi players.

Flatter one on middle, defended back down the ground towards the bowler.

OUT! Gone off the second ball! Kuggeleijn takes a simple catch coming in from short third man. Nine down now! Looks like SL might not last the quota of 20 overs even. Slower one this time well outside off, Kumara looks to smash it down the ground but gets a thick outside edge that goes straight to Scott. What an evening for the debutant as well.

FOUR! Kumara uses his feet and smashes this flatter one on leg right back over the bowler's head for a boundary off the first ball he faces. Lovely shot.

OUT! Lasith Malinga is back to the pavilion and New Zealand inching closer to the victory line. Santner bowls it wide outside off after seeing Malinga make room for himself for a slog. Malinga tries to go for it but all he manages is to find a top edge and Guptill takes a dolly at long on. The small hope that Sri Lanka had has just went down the drain here.
