New Zealand scraped home by one wicket in a thrilling low-scoring Champions Trophy contest against Sri Lanka in Cardiff yesterday.

 

The Kiwis had only been chasing 139 to win their Group A opener but were reduced to 49 for 4 and then 80 for 6 as the brilliant Lasith Malinga four for 34 and Shaminda Eranga 2 for 45 got among the wickets.

 

However, skipper Brendon McCullum and his brother Nathan made important contributions before Tim Southee 13 not out and last man Mitchell McClenaghan one not out, got them home by the skin of their teeth.
