New Zealand scraped through a nerve-wrecking one-wicket win over Sri Lanka at Cardiff in a low scoring contest. Just a couple of days, two teams at this very ground had scored nearly 600 runs and today Sri Lanka and New Zealand barely got past three figures with great difficulty.

The way South Africa battered New Zealand in the Tests, no one would have given them a chance of competing in the ODIs against a strong Proteas outfit. They may still go on to lose the series, but New Zealand’s performance in the opening one-dayer at Paarl would be something that they can memorably remember about this otherwise forgettable tour.
