New Zealand lose because of heroic spell of bowling by Malinga in twenty - 20 match!


New Zealand lose because of heroic spell of bowling by Malinga in twenty - 20 match!

The final third match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka at Pallekele grounds today with a revolutionary win for the Sri Lankan team. 

The Sri Lankan team closed their innings for a paltry total of 125 runs for 8 wickets. However, the Sri Lankan team prevented New Zealand from achieving such an easy target because of clever Sri
Lankan bowlers. The New Zealand team was placed in a precarious situation with Lasith Malinga grabbing 4 wickets in a row and another wicket as well. 

Malinga passed his 100th twenty - 20 wicket and became the biggest twenty - 20 wicket-taker and in addition etched his record as the only bowler to achieve three hat-tricks in twenty - 20 matches with the distinction of being the second bowler to knock down 4 wickets one after the other. This is the second occasion where Lasith Malinga grabbed 4 wickets in 4 balls in a row after the 2007 last world cup. 

Akila Dhananjaya chipped in with 2 wickets while Lakshan and Vanindu too bagged a wicket each for the Sri Lankans and on the batting side it was only Dhanushka (30) and Niroshan (24) who showed some sort of a success. The video depicting the scores and Malinga's record-breaking bowling stint, from below
