New Zealand makes 360-5 in 5th ODI vs. Sri Lanka

DUNEDIN, New Zealand (AP) -- Luke Ronchi made 170 not out and Grant Elliott an unbeaten 104 in a record 267-run sixth-wicket partnership which blasted New Zealand from 93-5 to 360-5 batting first in Friday's fifth one-day international against Sri Lanka.

New Zealand was in deep trouble with five wickets down and leading batsmen Brendon McCullum (25), Kane Williamson (26) and Corey Anderson (8) already dismissed when Ronchi and Elliott came together at the end of the 20th over.

Ronchi smashed his 170, his maiden one-day international century, from just 99 balls and Elliott 104 from 96 deliveries as they produced New Zealand's highest partnership for all wickets against Sri Lanka and its second-highest against all nations.
