New Zealand won by 10 wickets

This is what you call a completely one sided match. Right from the first ball of the tha match till the last, Kenya never looked really in the match and New Zealand won the match with 10 wickets and more than 40 overs yet to be bowled. Remember this is the Zew Zealand team that completeley lost their recently one day series to India and Balgaldesh. At that time there were doubts of if New Zealand team will qualify for the next round of the tournament. Perhaps this vistory will boost the teams confidence and make there way for the world cup success they have yet to achieve.

Below are the statements of both the captain in the post match presentations:

Vettori: "Wicket had a bit of variable bounce, which our seamers exploited. some big games coming up, good to start like this. With Mills coming back, there might be some changes for the next game. Nathan has done brilliantly as well for us."

Kamande: "Don;t think it was the wicket. It was the areas NZ bowled. We got to be more positive in whatever we do. NZ came very hard at us. We have to learn from this performance today. There are some more games coming up for us."

In just two hours from now the thirs match of the world cup will begin between Sri Lanka and Canada once again between one world cup favorites and a minnow team.

Oneintersting fact here is that the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium hasn't hosted any international match yet so the pitch condition are complete unknow to both the host and the Canadian team. Though it wil be a hard task for the Canadian team to beat Sri Lanka yet we need not to forget that the Canadian team consists of immigrants from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistasn and Banlgladesh thus this team can be considered to give some tough moments to Sri Lanka in the match.
