New Zealand won by 2 wickets with one ball to spare. It was a low scoring game with batsmen really struggling on a terribly slow pitch. New Zealand were lucky that their batsmen came up with crucial blows that kept them in the hunt and it was a narrow finish with Vettori and Nathan McCullum sealing the chase.
Over 19.5: Sixer! SL Malinga to NL McCullum, pitched up delivery, Malinga doesn't get his yorker right and McCullum lofts that inside out over wide long off for a clean six!!! That's the end of the chase for NZ!
Over 19.4: Run Out at the Non Striker's end! SL Malinga to NL McCullum, pitched up delivery, moves deep in the crease and slogs it along the ground to long on. There is just a single available but they decide to go for the second and Vettori running in to the danger end has no chance! 3 from 2
Over 19.3: Boundary! SL Malinga to NL McCullum, pitched up delivery, shuffles across and whips it through the vacant deep backward squareleg region for a boundary! 4 from 3
Over 19.2: 1 Bye. SL Malinga to DL Vettori, pitched up delivery, beats him with a wide yorker outside off. McCullum is sent back from a bye and Malinga misses the stumps with an easy under arm throw and in the end a bye has been taken through the over throw. 8 from 4
Over 19.1: Single. SL Malinga to NL McCullum, pitched up delivery, flicks the yorker to wide mid wicket for a single. 9 from 5
End of Over 19  
Over 18.6: Three runs. UWMBC Welagedara to NL McCullum, full toss, walks forward and across and manages to chip it flat over wide mid on and they pick up a third run desperately! The bowler failed to collect the throw otherwise Nathan was gone run out! NZ need 10 runs to win from the Final Over.
Over 18.5: Single. UWMBC Welagedara to DL Vettori, pitched up delivery, drags the yorker off the inside edge to square fine leg and settles for a single. 13 from 7
Over 18.4: Boundary! UWMBC Welagedara to DL Vettori, pitched up delivery, shuffles across and swings it away along the ground through backward squareleg for a boundary! 14 from 8
Over 18.3: Single. UWMBC Welagedara to NL McCullum, pitched up delivery, drives it hard to long off for a single. 18 from 9
Over 18.2: Run Out at the Striker's end! UWMBC Welagedara to GJ Hopkins, pitched up delivery, slashes that wide one to deep backward point and sets off for a non existing second run. Hopkins has no chance with Sanga destroying the stumps after an accurate throw from Dilshan. 19 from 10
Over 18.1: Bowled him! UWMBC Welagedara to JDP Oram, pitched up delivery, makes room for an ugly swipe across the line and ends up getting his stumps shattered! 20 from 11
Over 17.6: Single. SL Malinga to JDP Oram, pitched up delivery, blocks the yorker towards covers and can only get a single. NZ need 20 more runs to win from 12 balls.

Over 17.4: Two runs. SL Malinga to DL Vettori, pitched up delivery, squeezes the yorker towards deep point and takes a risky second run. Oram just managed to get into the crease. 22 from 14
Over 17.3: Single. SL Malinga to JDP Oram, pitched up delivery, blocks the yorker to the left of Malinga and takes off for a desperate single. Oram came in the way of the throw to avoid the run out. 24 from 15
