    India declared on 622 for 7. This time, the Aussie Openers survived 'till the close, putting on 24.


      Great ODI in Mt Maunganui. NZ won the toss, batted and scored 319.

      Sri Lanka were 128 for 7 after 27 overs but Perera really shook things up. SL were 270 for nine with five overs left. Perera hit four sixes in the next over before being caught with 3.4 overs left and the score on 298.

      He scored 140 off 74 balls. Of the 170 runs scored after the seventh wicket fell, he scored 139.

      NZ won by 21 runs and lead the three-match series 2-0.

      In Sydney, Australia are 236 for 6, 386 behind after three days.

      In Newlands, South Africa are 408 for 9, 231 ahead on the third morning.


        In Newlands, Pakistan managed to make SA bat again but were all out with the last ball of the third day, 40 ahead.

        SA rattled off the required runs for one wicket to win by nine wickets.

        In Sydney, Australia were all out for 300, 322 behind.

        They were asked to have another go and were 6 without loss at the close. One day left. It's looking draw-ish to me.

        EDIT No play was possible on the last day due to rain.
