Sri Lanka have beaten New Zealand by seven wickets in Group C of the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship at Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Both teams advance to the Super 8s after victories against Kenya earlier in the tournament.

New Zealand lost both openers in quick succession as Dilhara Fernando took 2-31 to dismiss Lou Vincent and Brendon McCullum. Peter Fulton and Ross Taylor shared a partnership of 70 runs, but Fulton was caught by Lasith Malinga for 25 runs and Scott Styris fell lbw to Sanath Jayasuriya soon afterwards to leave New Zealand on 97-4. Taylor scored 62 runs before being caught behind, and Jacob Oram scored 33 not out to take New Zealand to 164-7 at the end of the 20 overs.

Upul Tharanga and Sanath Jayasuriya shared an 82 run opening partnership before Tharanga was caught for 37. Jayasuriya went on to score 61 runs, adding 50 runs with Mahela Jayawardene, before he was caught by Fulton to give Daniel Vettori his second wicket. Jayawardene finished on 35 not out, and Sri Lanka passed the target with seven balls remaining.
