DateLine: 9th August 2009

 

The New Zealanders dominated Day Two of their warm-up match against Sri Lanka Development XI.

 

Skipper captain Daniel Vettori was just four runs shy of a century.

 

Resuming on 43 for one, the Black Caps reached 437 for seven, with an overall lead of 278 runs as four batsman made half-centuries.

 

After the early loss of Tim McIntosh, Ross Taylor and Daniel Flynn put on 109 runs for the third wicket before Flynn fell for 75.

 

Ross then added 93 runs with Jesse Ryder (48) for the fourth wicket but fell seven runs short of his century.

 

A mammoth 155-run stand between Vettori and Brendon McCullum (78) for the seventh wicket put the game beyond the hosts after they had made a comeback of sorts with three quick wickets reducing the Kiwis to 258 for six.

 

Vettori's unbeaten 96 came off 117 balls and included nine fours and two sixes.
