The Black Caps easily beat Sri Lanka in their first game of the 2019 Cricket World Cup thanks to a Man of the Match winning effort from pace bowler Matt Henry.

Henry took 3-29 and with fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, blew the Sri Lankan team away for just 136. New Zealand openers Martin Guptill (73*) and Colin Munro (58*) were untroubled as they chased the total down in just 16 overs.
