New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Six to the leg side off the third ball of the eighth and then four to the off side off the next. Ravindra is making runs everywhere at the moment. In the slot is the third ball of the eighth over from Dhananjaya, he slog sweeps it over deep midwicket. Then the next ball is smashed through cover after DDS pulls the length back.

Nov 9, 2023 12:47 PM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: SIX! Ravindra lets fly!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Dhananjaya de Silva is in for the sixth over and Ravindra steps out to his third ball and eases it over wide long-off. Wonderful shot from the youngster. He is on 16 off 13.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Wonder if that lucky boundary was the reprieve Conway needed to turn things around. He takes two off the third ball and times a shot past mid-on perfectly to the boundary. Madushanka then goes short and Conway pulls it away emphatically.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Ohhh lucky break there for Conway, not something he has got too often in this tournament. Good length delivery, quite nice from Madushanka, it shapes away and induces an edge from the drive that Conway tried. It flies between first slip and the diving wicketkeeper.

Nov 9, 2023 12:34 PM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: FOUR! Conway gets another boundary

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Fourth ball of the third from Madushanka, it is full and Conway drives it gloriously down the ground to the boundary.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Trent Boult talks

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Boult says that New Zealand are happy with this target. The wicket was probably a little different to what they thought it would be like. "Little slower than we thought, there might be dew later and might come on to the bat a bit better," he said. He says that New Zealand have done well as a group thus far in this tournament. "We're looking to peak at the right time and go all the way," he said.

Nov 9, 2023 11:52 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Sri Lanka 171 all out

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Ravindra once again breaks that stand and Sri Lanka's somewhat miraculous last wicket stand, and their overall tail-wag, has come to an end. It didn't look possible that Sri Lanka would survive until the 47th over when they were seven down in the 19th but the tail enders led by Theekshana have stolen some of New Zealand's thunder. Sri Lanka still have a massive job in their hands if they are to win this though, bowling is only going to get more difficult as the evening wears on with the humidity here and New Zealand have a lot of in form batters to make merry at the Chinnaswamy.

Nov 9, 2023 11:46 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Into the last 5 overs now

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Theekshana is on 36 off 86, Madushanka on 18 off 43. It seems like Ravindra and Southee will bowl out now.

Nov 9, 2023 11:40 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Into the 44th over

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Theekshana on 34 off 82, Madushanka on 16 off 35. Their stand is now on 35 off 66 and now three runs away from equalling Sri Lanka's best stand of this innings, a proper gritty tail-enders' partnership on display here and Sri Lanka should take a lot of heart from this.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 163/9 in 43 overs

Nov 9, 2023 11:32 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: FOUR!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Second ball of the 41st from Southee, Madushanka hoicks that over midwicket to the boundary. No more runs before or after that ball in that over and Madushanka is on 15 off 27, Theekshana remains on 31 off 78.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 159/9 in 41 overs

Nov 9, 2023 11:28 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Theekshana down hurt!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Last ball of the 40th from Ferguson, a brute of a delivery that nips in from back of a length and hits Theekshana on the bowling arm. Physio comes on and mends him but worryingly for Sri Lanka, that is Theekshana's bowling arm that has been hit. He is batting on 31 off 78, Madushanka at the other end on 11 off 21.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 155/9 in 40 overs

Nov 9, 2023 11:24 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: 39 overs done

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: It is quite extraordinary that the Sri Lankans have actually managed to get through to this part of the innings. They were down to their last three wickets in the 19th over and since then, only two wickets have fallen. Theekshana has led this act of resistance and he is on 30 off 73 balls. Madushanka at the other end on 10 off 20.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 153/9 in 39 overs

Nov 9, 2023 11:17 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: FOUR! 150 up for Sri Lanka!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Fourth ball of the 38th, Madushanka flays out the bat on this back of a length ball from Ferguson and it goes over point to the boundary. This is getting a little frustrating now for New Zealand.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 150/9 in 38 overs

Nov 9, 2023 11:08 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: 35 overs done

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Theekshana has moved to 25 off 61. He is trying to add as many runs as he can on the board and elongate this innings. Thus far he has done well with regards to that.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 140/9 in 35 overs

Nov 9, 2023 10:56 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: GONE!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Rachin Ravindra breaks this stand that has lasted 52 balls, which is the longest that any Sri Lankan pair has lasted today. It only produced 15 runs but hey, who cares about that at this point. Chameera slices the first ball of the 33rd, the first after the drinks break, straight to backward point.

Chameera c Boult b Ravindra 1 (20)

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 128/9 in 32.1 overs

Nov 9, 2023 10:45 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: 30 overs done

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Credit to Sri Lanka that they have managed to stick around until the 30th over. Theekshana is on 14 off 42, Chameera is still on nought off 17 balls. Sri Lanka are going nowhere with their score but the best they can do at the moment is hang around as long as possible. Santner to bowl out in the 31st, he has been utterly brilliant as usual.

Nov 9, 2023 10:33 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: BACK TO BACK FOURS! Some respite for Sri Lanka

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Theekshana clears mid-on first ball of the 27th and then he brings out a wonderful cover drive off the next. Some reprieve there for Sri Lanka who have pretty much been in survival mode. At the end of that over, Theekshana on 13 off as many, Chameera yet to get off the mark in 10 balls.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 124/8 in 27 overs

Nov 9, 2023 10:31 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Test match scenes!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: There are "RCB! RCB!" chants in the stands, the players on the field are in coloured clothing but the proceedings right now ae reminiscient of a Test match. The field is in and there was even a close second slip on his knees. New Zealand have a vice grip on this match, and possibly on that final semi-final spot.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 114/8 in 25 overs

Nov 9, 2023 10:22 AM IST

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: The most bizarre review in the world!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: The very next ball is a full toss on the stumps. Dushmantha Chameera seems to have very clearly got an inside edge before the ball hit the pads. Mitchell from slip absolutely begs Williamson to take the review and the latter obliges. Gigantic inside edge and the ball crashes onto the pads after that. Williamson walks off with his head in his palm seeing that, Mitchell with a sheepish smile. A review burner that one. The next two balls are dots.

NZ vs SL Live Score: Sri Lanka 113/8 in 24 overs

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: OUT! Ferguson gets another!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Ferguson has been playing with the batters' minds for a while now and he reaps the reward at last. Previous ball was a bouncer and Karunaratne ducked under it. Then the third is full, Karunaratne edges it, keeper takes it and the umpire raises his finger.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: GONE! Dhananjaya goes!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Wonderful low catch from Mitchell, another wicket for Santner and another nail in Sri Lanka's coffin. This has gone so horribly wrong for them. This delivery is outside off after the previous two were in line with the stumps, Dhananjaya lured into it, but the extra lift surprised him. He ends up somewhere between playing he shot and pulling out of it, outside edge and Mitchell takes.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: OUT! Mathews goes

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Santner gets his first wicket of the match and Sri Lanka lose their sixth. Wonder if someone told them that this is a T20I match and not an ODI. Length ball, Mathews drawn forward and deceived by the flight. Thick outside edge and the ball is caught at slips.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Oh gorgeous! Last ball of the 16th from Southeee, Dhananjaya lifts it gloriously back above the bowler's head and it travels to the stands.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: OUT! Now Perera falls, Sri Lanka crumbling

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Third ball of the 10th from Ferguson, Perera gets under it and sends it high into those dark clouds. Both Williamson and Santner positioned themselves underneath it, the former just about pulled out on time, the latter just about realised that his captain had pulled out on time, and completes the catch. The two share a hug in relief after that. Sri Lanka are falling apart.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: GONE! Boult strikes again!

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: It is not Perera but it is a fourth wicket within the first 10 overs which is always good news. It is also a fantastic review. Confident appeal for LBW second ball of the ninth, umpire turns it down. Boult tells Williamson that the two noises are coming from the ball hitting both the pads and so the New Zealand captain takes the review. Sure enough, there is no bat and it is three reds. Boult is in the business today.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Well, this game has had everything so far. three very quick wickets have fallen but 70 very quick runs have been scored as well, largely thanks to Kusal Perera. He is on 51 off 25, Asalanka on 8 off 6.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Lockie Ferguson introduced in the eighth over. Perera pounces on the fuller length third delivery and sends it to the boundary. That is Perera's half century and it has come in just 22 balls.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Score, NZ vs SL World Cup 2023: Well if New Zealand are getting wickets at one end, Perera is giving them food for thought at the other. He cracks the fifth ball of that same over through point. Then the last one, full on middle and leg, is flayed through midwicket by Perera. Wow, he has raced to 39 off 17 now with Charit Asalanka on 2 off 2 at the other end.
