Innings Highlights

32SIXMalinga to Milne, SIX, what a shot to end the innings! Milne lines Malinga up, picks the slower delivery and lofts it all the way over long on - 15 from the final over and that's a good finish from Milne131/8
31.5FOURMalinga to Milne, FOUR, lovely shot. Milne opens the face of the bat and drives wide of a diving point. Raced away125/8
31OUTNuwan Kulasekara to Franklin, out Lbw!! Plumb! Full, fast off stump yorker, Franklin shuffled across too much and missed the flick. Rest is history. Franklin lbw b Nuwan Kulasekara 21(37) [4s-1]116/8
30.2DROPPEDNuwan Kulasekara to Southee, 2 runs, dropped by Tharanga at deep square leg. Regulation take for the fielder after Southee miscued the slog, but Tharanga got both hands to it and shelled it115/7
29.2OUTJeevan Mendis to Ellis, out Lbw!! Another one for Jeevan Mendis. This time the top-spinner and Ellis made the fatal decision of sweeping, missed and was struck right in front of off and middle. Easy call for the umpire. Ellis lbw b Jeevan Mendis 0(3)107/7
27.5OUTJeevan Mendis to N McCullum, out Bowled!! They aren't picking the googles and Jeevan Mendis is on a hat-trick. Fab googly again from Jeevan Mendis, N McCullum had no clue, pushed well outside the line and the ball turned in a long way to hit off stump. Mendis has a huge smile on his face. N McCullum b Jeevan Mendis 0(1)105/6
