Sri Lanka was convincingly beat by New Zealand by 74 runs in a warm-up match of the ICC World T20 in Mumbai on yesterday.

The Kiwis started on a bad note as their skipper Kane Williamson was dropped on a duck in the very first over, while Martin Guptill hit seven fours and a six in 41 runs quick knock off 25 deliveries before being caught at cover by Senanayake.

Munro then laid a strong foundation to Kiwi's victory as he stitched a partnership with Anderson adding 92 for the third wicket.

Chasing a challenging target of 227, Sri Lanka had a disastrous start with both their openers falling cheaply.

Tillakratne Dilshan was bowled by Corey Anderson for a duck while Dinesh Chandimal too went back to the pavilion after being cleaned up by Adam Milne.

Lahiru Thirammane and Chamara Kapugedara then rallied the innings with a 66 runs stand off 41 balls before the former was caught by Anderson off Ish Sodhi in the 13th over.

But Sri Lanka was never in the fray as they kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and ended at 152 for seven.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka brushed aside Bangladesh by five wickets in a warm-up match played in Bengaluru.
