Impressive bowling spell by Fast bowler of New Zealand, Matt Henry wreaked destruction on the Sri Lankan batting order as New Zealand claimed an easy seven-wicket triumph over the Sri Lanka in the first ODI in Christchruch.
Sri Lanka are struggling at 27 for five in ten overs before Milinda Siriwardana scored 66 runs and Nuwan Kulasekara 58 runs to support his team to a fighting score. Sri Lankans were all-out at the score of 188.
In reply, Martin Guptill (79) and skipper Brendon McCullum(55) runs started on a attacking start as the opening 108-run stand quashed any chances of a comeback by the Sri Lanka.
Matt Henry was declared man of the Match.
