 Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson

New Zealand, led by Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson, overhauled Sri Lanka's target of 357 with ease to complete a six-wicket victory in both teams' final warm-up game at Edgbaston.

Guptill smashed 10 fours and five sixes in his 76-ball knock of 116 while Williamson followed that up with a 60-ball 88. Both batsmen subsequently decided to retire out - Guptill in the 29th and Williamson in the 32nd - but by then New Zealand were 101 runs away at a required run rate of less than six.

Our batting cannot be justified - Kane Williamson

Bruised and battered by India after being bundled out for a meagre 79 while chasing 270 in the series-deciding fifth and final ODI in Visakhapatnam, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson termed the performance of his batting department as “frustrating”. Williamson said the Kiwi batsmen did not justify to lose eight wickets for just 16 runs.
