Well NZ just showed the benefit of being able to bat low. Not sure what Nathan McCullum is doing batting so low given his record and his ability to bat the way he did today but well done to them. Have to say NZ's fielding was marginally better than SL although barring the Malinga debacle, would have to say that SL's fielding was exemplary as well.
Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
Mathews: 7/1 off 2 overs. 10 dot balls.
Might've been given another? Strange captaincy.

Awesome match, has to be said. Better than anything the IPL offered IMO. T20 so much more watchable without all the commercial bollocks.
Welegedera missed a great run out oppurtunity of Nathan Mccullum ,last bowl of the 19th over fumbling the ball. That ultimately turned out to be the clincher.
Guptill yorked himself to a 40 year old.
Taylor was a direct result of the pressure placed on himself by the two above getting themselves out.
Those three wickets were gifted by NZ - oh and don't forget McCullum #1 in the first over.
So in the clean up - BC's nearly thew it away but had the hitters to get them off the hook they'd placed themselves on.
Also find it much easier to empathise with a country than I do with a "franchise". Needless to say, it's all a matter of personal taste.
Thought SL would coast in after winning the toss on such a slow wicket
