ICC World Cup Cricket Match 2007 First Semi Final

Sri Lanka vs New Zealand at Jamaica

First Semi Final, SL vs NZ: Murali spins Sri Lanka into World Cup final

Sri Lanka Cricket team New Zealand Cricket team Captain Mahela Jayawardenes maiden World Cup hundred (115)coupled with a mesmerising four for 31 by off spinner Muttiah Muralitharan powered Sri Lanka to an emphatic 81-run victory against New Zealand in the first semi-final at Jamaica on Tuesday.
A tremendous performance by the ever-reliant Muralitharan, who was on a hat-trick at one stage, ensured that the Kiwis, who were 105-2, lost momentum and within a blink of an eye, collapsed to 116-7. Tillakaratne Dilshans dismissal of Scott Styris (37) proved to be the turning point as the Black Caps simply succumbed to the occasion and lost way quickly.
The downward spiral left only a feeling of shock which then turned to gloom as was evident from skipper Stephen Fleming's posture in the dressing room. For Sri Lanka the victory ensured that they became the first team to reach the finals and would await the winner of the second semi-final between South Africa and Australia on April 25. New Zealand team: P G Fulton, S P Fleming, R L Taylor, S B Styris, C D McMillan, J D P Oram, B B McCullum, D L Vettori, J E C Franklin, S E Bond, J S Patel
Sri Lanka team: W U Tharanga, S T Jayasuriya, K C Sangakkara, D P M D Jayawardene, L P C Silva, T M Dilshan, R P Arnold, W P U J C Vaas, S L Malinga, M Muralitharan, C R D Fernando
World Cup First Semi Final, Jamaica: Sri Lanka 289 for 5 beat New Zealand 208 all out by 81 runs

First Semi Final, SL vs NZ: Bond and Oram set to return for semi-finals

Sri Lanka Cricket team New Zealand Cricket team Fast bowler Shane Bond and giant all-rounder Jacob Oram are scheduled to return to the New Zealand side for Tuesday's World Cup semi-final against Sri Lanka in Jamaica.
Bond, who missed his team's 215-run hammering by Australia on Saturday with a stomach complaint, did not train on Saturday but Oram batted in the nets at the Grenada National Stadium. Oram, who was rested because of a bruised right heel, did not bowl but told reporters he would test his heel after the team arrived in Jamaica on Monday.
Their return has become a matter of urgency for the Kiwis after the mauling by Australia, the biggest one-day defeat in New Zealand history. Adroitly as Stephen Fleming juggled his slender bowling resources, nothing could disguise how much he missed Bond's pace and skills and Oram's bounce and accuracy. New Zealand team (from): S Fleming (Captain), P Fulton, R Taylor, S Styris, C McMillan, J Oram, B McCullum, D Vettori, J Franklin, S Bond, J Patel, H Marshall, M Gillespie, C Martin, M Mason.
Sri Lanka team (from): M Jayawardene (Captain), S Jayasuriya, U Tharanga, K Sangakkara, C Silva, T Dilshan, R Arnold, C Vaas, F Maharoof, L Malinga, M Muralitharan, D Fernando, M Atapattu, N Kulasekera, M Bandara.
