A clinical New Zealand performance has seen them trounce an abject Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in Cardiff. Martin Guptill (73*) and Colin Munro (58*) made light work of the target with a pair of aggressive fifties, taking the Kiwis home with more than 33 overs to spare. Sri Lanka found the edge fairly regularly but couldn't build any pressure with the luck going against them and a small total on the board. In truth though they lost this match in the first innings, unable to withstand Matt Henry (3/29) and Lockie Ferguson (3/22) nipping the ball around at high pace. It was a mightily impressive display on a green surface and would have caused any team serious trouble. They were ably backed up by some superb catches and athletic ground fielding to keep Dimuth Karunaratne always on the back foot. The Sri Lankan skipper scrapped his way to an unbeaten half century, becoming just the second man to carry his bat in a World Cup match, however it was never going to be enough. He will be looking for a big improvement from his side for their next match against Afghanistan at this same ground on Tuesday. Kane Williamson will be content with a similar performance as they move to The Oval to face Bangladesh on Wednesday.
