Watch how Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera blazed his way to 140 from 74 balls against New Zealand
5th January 2019

Thisara Perera smoked 13 sixes for Sri Lanka in the second ODI against New Zealand at Bay Oval – but the day still ended up an unlucky one for the tourists.

Thisara’s maiden ODI ton – a quite remarkable 140 from 74 balls – kept Sri Lanka in the hunt to chase down 320, level the three-match series and make the final game in Nelson a decider.

The all-rounder eventually holed out off Matt Henry as Sri Lanka were dismissed for 298 but he can be proud of his efforts, which you can watch highlights of in the video above.

It has rained sixes at Bay Oval in the last two matches, with New Zealand’s James Neesham blazing five in one over in the first ODI – Thisara the unlucky bowler on that occasion!

Watch the third and final ODI live on Sky Sports Cricket from 9.55pm on Monday.
