Sri Lanka End New Zealand's Winning Run

Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya and Kumar Sangakkara scored half-centuries to hand New Zealand their first defeat at the World Cup in their Super 8 match in Grenada. Sri Lanka won by six wickets with 29 balls to spare, ending a streak of nine one-day wins by New Zealand. New Zealand, who won the toss and chose to bat, struggled early in their innings before Scott Styris's undefeated 111 steadied them to a total of 219 for seven. Jayasuriya scored 64 and Sangakkara made 69 not out as Sri Lanka cruised to 222 for four in reply. © Reuters 2007
