OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to Kasun Rajitha. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to leg gully, by Seifert. New Zealand have beaten Sri Lanka by 35 runs at Eden Park in the Only T20I to leave the tourists without a win all tour. In the early stages of the game that looked improbable as the Kiwis crashed to 5-55 halfway through their innings. Lower order cameos from Doug Bracewell and Scott Kuggeleijn launched the hosts up to a healthy if not daunting total in Auckland. In response, Sri Lanka made their approach clear from the start with the top order playing as many shots as possible. They were losing regular wickets yet still looked in control until a sublime 13th over by Lockie Ferguson where he took two wickets, including the explosive Thisara Perera, and conceded just two runs. That proved to be the decisive turning point as the Black Caps mopped up the tail with ease. New Zealand's next assignment is some white-ball cricket at home against India, whereas Sri Lanka have the tough prospect of a tour of Australia.

OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to Lahiru Kumara. Slider length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Kuggeleijn. Sliced tamely into the offside, Sri Lanka are sliding towards defeat.

OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to Lasith Malinga. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Guptill. Fantastic bowling by Santner, slowing this one up and luring the batsman into a wild heave. New Zealand are closing in on a crushing victory.

FOUR! Mitchell Santner to Lasith Malinga. Stock ball yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Fortune for the Sri Lankan skipper, he'll certainly take it at this stage.

OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Ish Sodhi to Dasun Shanaka. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to. What drama at Eden Park, the home crowd is really rocking now. Sodhi is convinced this is plumb but the umpire is unmoved. Southee asks for the review and ball tracking brings up three reds. Lovely bowling by the leggie, things aren't looking good for Sri Lanka now.

FOUR! Mitchell Santner to Dasun Shanaka. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. I'm not sure Shanaka was looking to play the ball quite that fine but it works in his favour. Every boundary hurts the Kiwis.

OUT! Bowled. Lockie Ferguson to Dhananjaya de Silva. Yorker, outside off stump no foot movement defending, inside edge to. Sheer pace from Ferguson leaves de Silva with his feet rooted to the spot. That was a sensational over to really tilt the match in favour of the hosts.

OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Thisara Perera. Slower ball short, outside off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Bracewell. That's the wicket the Black Caps have been desperate for, Thisara Perera has been in terrific form but he can't finish the job tonight. The match is in the balance now, it could go either way from here.
