82.5OUTNuwan Kulasekara to Boult, out Bowled!! The new ball has done the trick, this was full and nips back in sharply, Boult was caught in his crease, ends up playing all around the in-dipper, the ball goes on to hit the top of middle. NZ have been bowled out for 221. Boult b Nuwan Kulasekara 7(9) [4s-1]221/10
80.5FOUREranga to Boult, FOUR, nicely done by Boult, this was short and just outside off, Boult gets across and cracks a lovely looking cover drive, beats the man in the ring and races away to the fence in a hurry217/9
78.4OUTEranga to Southee, out Caught by Mathews!! Good catch from Mathews! This was a length ball and just outside off, Southee went for the ambitious drive, gets a thick outside edge that flies in the air and towards backward point. It was dying on Mathews but he dives forward and clasps it with both hands. Eranga gets his third wicket. Southee c Mathews b Eranga 16(37) [4s-1]207/9
72.4OUTHerath to van Wyk, out Bowled!! Herath gets 5. The sweep shot goes awry for Wyk, this was fired in quicker and on off, not the kind of ball that you would look to sweep, Wyk has been pretty successful with that shot until now, attempts it once again, the ball sneaks through and crashes into the off-stump. Another batsman gets a start and fails to convert it into a bigger one. van Wyk b Herath 28(49) [4s-3]196/8
70.5FOURHerath to Southee, FOUR, Southee will play his shots, gets well forward to a nicely tossed up ball and swings it with the spin, no one deep at mid-wicket, one bounce and over the ropes191/7
68.2OUTHerath to Doug Bracewell, out Caught by Mahela Jayawardene!! Doug Bracewell c Mahela Jayawardene b Herath 12(25) [4s-1]181/7

44.1OUTRandiv to Boult, out Caught by Mahela Jayawardene!! edged and gone! That is the end of the innings as well, this was drifted on off, Boult was playing for the spin, gets a thick outside edge that is well held by Mahela at 1st slip moving to his left. Herath leads the Lankan players off the ground. Boult c Mahela Jayawardene b Randiv 13(18) [6s-2]
42.5SIXRandiv to Boult, SIX, this is massive! Randiv came from round the wicket and drifts this one on middle, Boult shimmies down, sets himself up and sends it soaring deep into the stands at mid-wicket116/9
42.4SIXRandiv to Boult, SIX, nicely struck by Boult, goes down on his knees, fetches this one from well outside off and slog sweeps it over wide deep mid-wicket for a maximum110/9
39.4FOURHerath to van Wyk, FOUR, too short from Herath, Wyk waits on it and cuts it past point, beats the man out in the deep102/9
37.4OUTHerath to Jeetan Patel, out Caught by Karunaratne!! This dismissal just sums up New Zealand's day. This was short and on the pads, Patel flicked it in the air towards short leg. Karunaratne can't manage to hold onto the catch, the ball ends up getting stuck in between his legs, freak dismisal number three in this innings. Jeetan Patel c Karunaratne b Herath 0(1)97/9
37OUTRandiv to Southee, out Stumped!! Another unlucky dismissal, New Zealand do not seem to enjoy any luck so far. This was a freak dismissal, well flighted on off, Southee looks to work it towards the onside, misses and is struck on the pads. The momemtum takes him out of the crease even as the ball dribbles away towards the keeper. Prasanna picks up the ball and whips the bails off with Southee struggling to make his way back. Southee st Prasanna Jayawardene b Randiv 16(14) [4s-2 6s-1]96/8
