Controversial run out helps New Zealand beat Sri Lanka

New Zealand stumbled to a controversial five-wicket win over Sri Lanka here on Saturday in a low-scoring first Test which lasted less than three days.

The home side was set a target of just 119 to win after Sri Lanka’s second innings ended in bizarre fashion for 170.

But New Zealand then lost five wickets as they struggled to deal with champion spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, who took three of New Zealand’s second innings wickets for a match haul of seven for 99.

However, the Test will be remembered for the way the spinner was dismissed to end Sri Lanka’s second innings.

“We knew from the start we can win this series. Even though we have lost one game we will try and come (down) tough on Pakistan,” he said.

Lara suffered slight knee niggles in nets on Saturday but he hoped to recover after treatment. “I am fine, just getting some treatment. It’s been a long tour and we have been away for quite some time. Hopefully, everybody will be available for today’s match, including myself,” said Lara, with both knees strapped.
