Sri Lanka beat New Zealand by 115 runs in the third match of the one-day series in Nelson.
Once again, Theresa Perrera’s heroism and then Sri Lanka’s disappointment story.
Sri Lanka were batting on 365 for victory in the third and final match of the one-day series at Nelson. In the 17.1 overs, Sri Lanka reached 117 for 4 wickets, Thesera Perera came to the wicket. Perera was dismissed for 63 off 80 balls with four fours and two sixes in 38.3 overs. Sri Lanka, after taking 4 wickets in hand, were 121 for 69 in the distance. Although the target was difficult, Lasith Malinga’s team could have tried to end. But it happened without the surprise fall!
Sri Lanka’s last five batsmen got only 5 runs in the match after returning to Perera for 244 runs. The last four batsmen have been out of the team scoreboard without adding any runs! That is the last four batsmen lost all out to 249 Sri Lanka Ferguson and Ritendra Sodhi shared the 41st and 42nd overs with the four wickets taken. Sri Lankan could not add any more runs to the scoreboard after Ferguson Wide put the second delivery in the 41st over. But the team lost all the four wickets in the next 9 deliveries.
Perera’s innings, chasing sixes and seven fours, is the best in the Sri Lanka team. Apart from this, no other batsman has seen the face of FIFA. Earlier, New Zealand won three hundreds in the first innings of the Twenty20. Ross Taylor scored 137 runs in 131 balls. Henry Nicholls played a brilliant innings of 124 in 80 balls. New Zealand beat Sri Lanka 3-0 in a three-match series win in the last match of 115 runs.
But surprisingly, the equipment or equipment that is being brought from the UK to connect Ultra Edge technology to the DRS, the broadcast room of Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
