T20WC2012: SL vs NZ: This Match Has Everything on the Platter

Excellent batting by NZ playing first and putting a target of 175 to win for Sri Lanka. Excellent opening by Dilshan and Jayawardene. Beautiful catch of Jayawardene by Vettori. Lovely run out getting Sangakara out. But by then the picture was quite clear. Sri Lanka is in. New Zealand is out of fray.

On top of it a half century by Dilshan must be termed as the cherry on the cake. Required run rate a little higher than when Sangakara left. It was over 6 runs per over at that time which piled up to over 7 an over. 49 runs in 38 balls, should not be a worry point for SL as long as Dilshan is on the crease.
