After claiming a thrilling victory in the first Twenty20 international, New Zealand will aim for a series whitewash when the hosts and Sri Lanka conclude their tour with the final meeting in the second T20I at the Eden Park in Auckland.
Colin Munro has smashed New Zealand’s fastest international Twenty20 half-century, breaking a record set by teammate Martin Guptill minutes earlier in a nine-wicket Twenty20 win over Sri Lanka.
The pair were destructive as New Zealand sauntered to the easy victory in the second and final match in Auckland on Sunday to claim the series 2-0.
New Zealand, riding on Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson’s solid 101-run opening partnership beat Sri Lanka by three runs in the opening T20I.
New Zealand certainly have the momentum behind them as they pummeled SriLankans in both Test and ODI series and will try to finish this series the same way they started it.
Munro reached exactly 50 off 14 balls, bring up the winning runs with his seventh six as the Black Caps chased down 143 for victory with 10 overs to spare at Eden Park.
Earlier, Guptill had got to 50 off 19 balls, beating by four balls a record he had held with Aaron Redmond. His 25-ball knock ended on 63 when he was caught behind off seamer Thisara Perera.
Sent in to the bat, Sri Lanka mustered 8-142, with Angelo Mathews providing the bulk of their runs with a career-high 81 not out.
Grant Elliott, who in the Black Caps’ last appearance on Eden Park hit the winning six in the epic World Cup semi-final victory against South Africa in March, again played a major hand.
The part-time seamer took 4-22 off his four overs, while spinning all-rounder Mitchell Santner (2-24) and fast bowler Adam Milne (2-36) grabbed the other wickets.
Hard luck for Guptill and more so, for Elliott, for picking up 4 wickets in a T20 and not being acknowledged. That is all we have from this big Kiwi tour by the Lankans. The hosts now get ready to receive Pakistan for a 3-T20I, 3-ODI series before the big one of the summer against Australia. Sri Lanka take a break for now as they head back home for some recuperation before the T20 World Cup in India. That is all we have for you from today. Until next time, Adios! Take Care!
Spare a thought for the Lankans. Mathews’ knock would have given them some hope but Guptill’s onslaught killed everything which would have been in their minds. A nightmare to end a disappointing tour. And, if Guptill was not enough, then Munro came in and enjoyed himself. Forgetful outing for the tourists.
Well, one did expect the Kiwis to win but by such a big margin? Naah… this is literally brutal bashing by the hosts. It was all set up by Guptill, who smashed 63 from 25 balls, which included the fastest T20I fifty by a Kiwi but then Colin Munro came out and clobbered 50 from just 14 balls, which is now the second fastest half century in this format behind Yuvraj Singh’s 12-ball one against England in Durban.
Gone in 60 balls. New Zealand won by 9 wickets and 60 balls to spare. They were not chasing a target under 100. They have chased down 143 with consummate ease.
New Zealand won the toss and chose to bowl Sunday in the second match of a Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka was forced into three changes due to a spate of injuries. Chamara Kapugedera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Suranga Lakmal were replaced by Isuru Udra, Kithuruwan Vithanage and Dushmantha Chameera.
New Zealand made two changes for the game at Eden Park, naming all-rounder Mitchell Santner in place of Ish Sodhi, and Adam Milne for Matt Henry.
New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (captain), Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan.
Sri Lanka: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dinesh Chandimal (captain), Angelo Mathews, Shehan Jayasuriya, Milinda Siriwardana, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Isuru Udana, Thisara Perera, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dushmantha Chameera.
