AUCKLAND, Thursday: Having won the Test series and swept the one-day internationals 3-0, New Zealand will look to finish a high by winning the one-off Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka as well at Eden Park, Auckland on Friday. New Zealand notched up three consecutive scores in excess of 300 in the ODI series, burying Sri Lanka under a pile of runs they couldn't recover from, despite a heroic effort from Thisara Perera.

Sri Lanka desperately in need of wicket-taking bowlers in the middle overs ahead of the World Cup are anxious to clear the bowling action of spinner Akila Dananjaya in order to have him up and ready for the upcoming South African ODI series.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson heaped praise on Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera after his stunning 74-ball 140 almost single-handedly dragged the tourists towards an unlikely victory.

Angelo Mathews World Cup spot in jeopardy

Sri Lanka’s experienced one-day cricketer Angelo Mathews’ place in Sri Lanka’s 2019 World Cup squad could be in jeopardy unless he proves his fitness.

Chief selector Ashantha de Mel blamed the present domestic structure for the poor batting techniques displayed by the Sri Lankan batsmen against short-pitched bowling in New Zealand where Sri Lanka lost the two-Test series 1-0.

Sri Lanka has been ranked as one of the top countries where sports corruption thrives by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and in an effort to curb it the ICC has decided to set up a permanent Anti-Corruption Unit office in Sri Lanka, stated Sports Minister Harin Fernando at a media conference held at the Sports Ministry yesterday.
