September 2nd, 2009 Posted in 20-20, Match Highlights, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Twenty 20

New Zealand 141 for 8 (Taylor 60, Malinga 2-21) beat Sri Lanka 137 for 9 (Dilshan 57, Oram 3-32) by three runs

Post-match presentation: Sangakkara: “With the start we had, not chasing 142 is inexcusable … I think Dilshan has matured a lot over the past couple of years and is maximising his opportunities, unfortunately we couldn’t support him today”

Vettori: “The fightback after we got Dilshan was really impressive. He’s been the difference between the two sides in the Tests and today, and it’s difficult to bowl to him given the wide range of shots he has… Our death bowling was the best display in a long time … The fielding really stands out int Twenty20. ” Vettori is also the Man of the Match.
