ICC World Cup Cricket Match 2007

Sri Lanka vs New Zealand

Super 8, Match 15, SL vs NZ: Sri Lanka beat New Zealand by 6 wickets

Sri Lanka Cricket team New Zealand Cricket team Sri Lanka ended New Zealand's unbeaten World Cup run and moved to within sight of the last four with a comfortable six-wicket Super 8 victory in Grenada.
Scott Styris made an unbeaten 111 as the Black Caps laboured to a modest total of 219-7 from their 50 overs. Chaminda Vaas took 3-33 and Muttiah Muralitharan 3-32 for Sri Lanka.
In reply, Sanath Jayasuriya made 64 before Kumar Sangakkara guided Sri Lanka home with almost five overs to spare with an unbeaten 69. Reported Earlier: Scott Styris gritty knock of 111 in 157 balls helped an otherwise unimpressive New Zealand post 219 for 7 in their allotted 50 overs in the World Cup Super Eight match against Sri Lanka at the Grenada National Stadium.
Styris held the New Zealand innings together but his partners deserted him in the efforts at regular intervals. Murali dismissed Brendon McCullum(1) and Daniel Vettori(5) in quick succession around the 40th over taking his tally in the match to three. Vaas also managed 3 wickets in his 10 overs. Reported Earlier: New Zealand have won the toss against Sri Lanka in Grenada and have elected to bat first.
Sri Lanka will be without paceman Lasith Malinga, who misses out with an ankle ligament injury, and his place goes to Farveez Maharoof.
Batsman Ross Taylor is recalled by New Zealand after missing their last four matches with a hamstring injury. He replaces Hamish Marshall in the line-up, while seamer Mark Gillespie is preferred to spinner Jeetan Patel. Sri Lanka team: W U Tharanga, S T Jayasuriya, D P M D Jayawardene, K C Sangakkara, L P C Silva, T M Dilshan, R P Arnold, W P U J C Vaas, M F Maharoof, C R D Fernando, M Muralitharan
New Zealand team: P G Fulton, S P Fleming, R L Taylor, S B Styris, C McMillan, J D P Oram, B B McCullum, D L Vettori, J E C Franklyn, S E Bond, M R Gillespie
World Cup Super 8, Match 15, Grenada: Sri Lanka 222-4 (45.1 overs) beat New Zealand 219-7 (50.0 overs) by 6 wickets

Super 8, Match 15, SL vs NZ: Malinga out of New Zealand match

Sri Lanka Cricket team New Zealand Cricket team Lasith Malinga, the leading bowler at the World Cup, has been ruled out of Sri Lanka's Super Eights clash against New Zealand on Thursday with an ankle injury.
Malinga, who missed practice Tuesday, trained at the Grenada National Stadium on Wednesday and bowled just three deliveries at reduced pace. He was then seen sitting in the stand with his left ankle heavily strapped. Malinga, whose distinctive slingy action makes him difficult to face, tops the tournament bowling averages with 15 wickets at an average of under 15 apiece.
Against South Africa, in a Super Eights match in Guyana last month, he became the first bowler to take four wickets in four balls in an international fixture. Farveez Maharoof or Nuwan Kulasekara, both right-arm ace bowlers, are the leading contenders to take the 23-year-old Malinga's place in the side. New Zealand, yet to win the World Cup, top the Super Eights table on run-rate ahead of champions Australia the only other unbeaten side in the tournament. Sri Lanka team (from): Upul Tharanga, Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara (Wicket Keeper), Mahela Jaywardene (Captain), Chamara Silva, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Russel Arnold, Chaminda Vaas, Muttiah Muralitharan, Dilhara Fernando, Farveez Maharoof, Nuwan Kulasekara
New Zealand team (from): Stephen Fleming (Captain), Peter Fulton, Ross Taylor, Hamish Marshall, Scott Styris, Craig McMillan, Jacob Oram, Brendon McCullum (Wicket Keeper), Daniel Vettori, James Franklin, Shane Bond, Jeetan Patel, Mark Gillespie
