Corey Anderson had a big job on his hands after two quick wickets rocked the New Zealand boat. Then, Anderson lead a spirited fightback with some calculated hitting at the start and then going berserk towards the end of the innings with a flurry of big hits.

Martin Guptill meanwhile, was also dangerous and was at his attacking best but played second fiddle to McCullum. Catch the Live Updates of the 1st World Cup match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand here
