Sensational Punch
by D. Giridhar


Scorecard:Sri Lanka v New Zealand
Event:ICC World Cup 2010/11

DateLine: 1st April 2011

 

It was a sensational victory by Sri Lanka to emerge victorious against Kiwi's by 5 wickets in the semifinals of the World Cup.

 

For the Sri Lankans the destructive bowling of Malinga, Mendis and the spin wizardry of Muralitharan folded-up the New Zealanders for a modest total on a good batting track. Malinga and Mendis took three wickets each with their line and length bowling which rattled New Zealand batsmen Guptill, Taylor, Williamson, McCullum, Southee and McKay who could not match the Magical spells of these bowlers.

 

In reply, Sri Lanka with superb half-centuries from Dilshan and Sangakkara guided their team home showing phenomenal temperament and a wide range of cricketing strokes which were a delight for all cricket lovers to watch.
