And that two gets New Zealand over the line with three balls to spare, in the end the middle over cost Sri Lanka after getting off to a great start. Taylor and de Grandhomme played exceptionally well to give New Zealand a chance, but after Taylor fell you thought Sri Lanka might have nicked it but some good batting from Santner gives New Zealand the win and a great start to the series.
