Here's all you need to know about New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI at Maunganui.

New Zealand enter the one-day global series with good confidence having won the Test series against Sri Lanka and returning to a format in which their form has largely been good in recent times and one which they will be keen to do well in ahead of the World Cup.

Although Martin Guptill stole the show at the start, it was Jimmy Neesham who exhibited an absolute batting display at the death overs with his blazing knock of 47 runs from just 13 balls.

Sri Lankan batsman Kusal Perera put up a spirited fight before being dismissed for 102.

Sri Lanka made an excellent start to the reply, only for Neesham to then continue his great day by having Gunathilika caught down the leg side and then bowling Dickwella off an inside edge in his next over.

The second false point in Trump's Twitter post is his statement that "much of the Wall has already been fully renovated or built". But they have drawn the line at the use of any taxpayer money for the erection of a new wall . "That was 30 years ago", she said.

Stead described the home ODI series against Sri Lanka as being "about tweaking, looking at the style of play and how we want to play and looking at the options who fit those roles as well".

It's been a year since Guptill last played for New Zealand and four years since he lit up the last World Cup when he blasted an unbeaten 237 off 163 balls against the West Indies.

Neesham's heroics came after Martin Guptill (138), Kane Williamson (76) and Ross Taylor (54) made significant contributions with the bat to set a respectable 372-run target for Sri Lanka to chase. Captain Lasith Malinga contributed more head-high no-balls (three) than wickets (two) as he was swatted for 78 from 10 overs, Nuwan Pradeep went for 72 from eight, and the Sri Lankan spin duo of Seekkuge Prasanna and Lakshan Sandakan were easily accounted for - going for 60 and 64 runs respectively.

After clinching the 2-match Test series, Kiwis will lock horn against Sri Lanka in the 3-match ODIs.
