NZ made 7/319 and SL are currently 1/37 after 7 overs (Gunathilaka 23*).
Thought I had jinxed this bet when I saw that Gunathilaka was creeping up rapidly to that 90, but alas he has now been dismissed for 71 and SL are now 5/126 after 26 overs.

Unless there's an unlikely SL victory in the making, then I think we can take this one to the bank, well played @Darkie

Haha - I won't count my chickens, at one stage I was thinking "okay, just the Sri Lankans we need to worry about" ... but then Neesham smashed 20 off an over and was in the 60s with twelve balls to play. Neesham went from $201 for top bat to $26 in a matter of minutes!

Edit: Taylor in to $1.005 on Sportsbet. Where is the "lay" button?!

Perera up to 78 ... this is getting a bit nerve wracking!!
It's all over I'm afraid ... Perera on 91!

Edit: four dropped catches apparently, and NZ reviewed one earlier and the vision was unavailable. It wasn't meant to be!

Oh damn! Just started reading this now and could’ve looked at the cashout amount when it was $1.005 :(

Dam sorry guys...no free to air BBL got the better of my judgement!

Williamson dropped a dolly when he was on 79, what made it worst was that the ball dropped over the boundary for a SIX.

I'll give myself an enforced ban from this thread so no more early crow from me.

But who doesn’t like an early crow. Doc was doing it earlier and it just built up the anticipation and excitement lol
