Kane Williamson has completed his 15th half-century in One-Day Internationals (ODI) off 75 balls against Sri Lanka in the seventh and final match of the series at Wellington. Williamson walked in after opener Martin Guptill was dismissed for a duck in the first ball of the innings. Williamson did not get much support from Tom Latham or Ross Taylor, but is currently in the middle of a good partnership with Grant Elliot.

Sri Lanka had earlier won the toss and elected to bat first. They put up an 287 for six in their 50 overs thanks to an unbeaten century by Kumar Sangakkara and a brilliant 81 from Tillakaratne Dilshan. Sri Lanka however could not get their score past 300, although it looked likely at one stage. New Zealand have rested Brendon McCullum for this game and Williamson has taken over has captain in his absence.

New Zealand have already won the series, but it’s a test of character for Sri Lanka, as they look to pull one back in the series.
