From NZCity News:
13 April 2007
New Zealand has suffered its first loss at the Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean.

The Black Caps have been hammered by six wickets in this morning's Super Eights match against Sri Lanka in Grenada.

After winning the toss and batting first, New Zealand made a disappointing 219 for seven off its 50 overs, thanks largely to an unbeaten century to Scott Styris. Styris compiled a well struck 111 not out, rescuing the Black Caps from four for two at one stage, after Stephen Fleming and Ross Taylor were both dismissed without scoring. James Franklin also did his bit to give the score some respectability, belting an unbeaten 25 off just 27 balls. However, the 220 run target never looked enough to trouble the Sri Lankans, who made light work of the run chase, reaching 222 for four with nearly five overs to spare. Kumar Sangakkara top scored with an unbeaten 69 while Sanath Jayasuriya chipped in with 64. Daniel Vettori was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers, finishing with two wickets for 35 runs off his 10 overs.

The Black Caps are now third on the points table, behind Australia and Sri Lanka on net run rate and play South Africa on Sunday before facing Australia in their final Super Eights match in Grenada next Saturday.
