But Scott Styris manages to upstage Sanath Jayasuriya's scintillating 120 with a spectacular knock of 141 in the losing cause.

46th over Styris hits another six and reaches 141 - the highest-ever individual score at Goodyear Park - before being caught by Vaas. The NZ innings ends on 225.

18th over Jayasuriya's first over costs six.

16th over Now Mallender allows Fernando to bowl a beamer without no-balling him and the umpiring must improve.

20 overs An increasingly wayward Adams is leg-glanced by Tillakaratne for his first boundary.

18 overs Adams over-pitches to allow Jayasuriya to carve him through the covers for four, and is then so nearly caught at third man, collecting another boundary.

17 overs Tillakaratne, who has been quiet throughout his innings, gets lucky by edging Oram just wide of gully. Oram then beats Jayasuriya twice, with nothing going the Kiwis' way.

14 overs Adams, replacing Bond at the Loch Logan End, has a nightmare start. He is carved away for three boundaries as Jayasuriya reaches his fifty off 45 balls.

2nd over Bond causes Atapattu a huge amount of trouble. An appeal for caught behind is turned down, while another ball does a little too much to earn the bowler an lbw.

1st over Tuffey bowls to Atapattu, finding generous swing with the first delivery, and only two runs come off the over.
