Recent Match Report - Sri Lanka vs New Zealand 3rd T20I 2019

Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga took four wickets in four balls for the second time in his international career Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga took four wickets in four balls for the second time in his international career

Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga and left-arm New Zealand spinner Mitchell Santner have made major gains in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men's T20I Player Rankings after their three-match series against New Zealand, which the latter won 2-1.

Dismissing Colin Munro (12), Ross Taylor (0), Hamish Rutherford (0) and Colin de Grandhomme (0) in a flurry, Maligna went to pick up his fifth wicket of the match by dismissing Tim Seifert (8) too. Where in 2007, his victims were mainly lower-order batsmen, in a mostly-empty stadium in Guyana, in 2019 he was taking down New Zealand's top order in front of a euphoric packed house in Pallekele.

Malinga had dismissed Shaun Pollock, Andrew Hall, Jacques Kallis and Makhaya Ntini but it was all in vain as South Africa clinched a last-gasp win.

The veteran speedster, who retired from Test cricket in 2011 and played his farewell one-day global in July, has improved his T20 tally to 104 wickets in 76 matches. Three further global hat-tricks later, in defence of Sri Lanka's modest 125 for 8, he ripped out four in four again, on an evening in which he claimed five wickets for six runs, and hauled Sri Lanka to a 37-run consolation victory against New Zealand.

Todd Astle had bamboozled the Sri Lankan batsmen with his wrong-uns, taking two of his three wickets against batsmen who couldn't pick the turn. Munro went for a big swing and watched his leg stump cartwheel before Rutherford - flown in as an emergency replacement for his first Twenty20 worldwide in almost six years - wasted a flight, trapped lbw first ball by an inswinger.

Akila Dananjaya backed up his captain's effort with two wickets whereas Lakshan Sandakan wrapped up the win in 16 overs after trapping Seth Rance lbw for eight. Sky Sports NZ will broadcast the match in New Zealand.

He finished with telling figures of 5/6 in four overs.

When he took his first wicket that of Colin Munro, Malinga established another record by becoming the first bowler to capture a century of wickets in T20 Internationals.

The hat trick was also Malinga's second in T20s. Now once again he has done this feat in the shortest format of cricket.
