View dismissal MJ Guptill c Mathews b Kulasekara 4 3 6 1 0 66.66
0.6 edged to first slip! Kula has stuck to his line and he gets the reward. That was outside off, very similar to the last five deliveries and drew the batsman in defence. But the ball nipped away after pitching and took a healthy edge to Angelo at first slip. Big blow for New Zealand 4/1
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Eranga 4 16 10 0 0 40.00
3.5 another one this time, that's hit the pads in front of off! McCullum immediately points to the bat and he is got a reason to be disappointed with that, the ball took a big inside edge on to the pads. The ball was full and comes in with the angle and beats McCullum on the drive. 14/2
View dismissal KS Williamson lbw b Herath 135 421 305 12 0 44.26
104.4 Oh Kane, what have you done! this was the slider that was bowled a bit quick and Williamson tries to do a Taylor as he tries to sweep this from outside off. He misses the line and gets hit on the pads right in front. That was an easy one for the umpire and his finger was up even before Herath turned 290/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* lbw b Herath 142 388 306 11 0 46.40
99.6 leg before and that was plumb in front! It was a flatter delivery on the middle stump, Taylor went down on his knee to sweep it to deep square leg, but it was out as soon as he missed it. He was concentrating so hard since yesterday and the sweep shot has brought his downfall again 276/3
View dismissal DR Flynn lbw b Herath 53 195 135 3 0 39.25
152.1 there is the five-for! That was bowled flatter from over the wicket. The ball pitched outside off and turned in from short of length. Flynn, who has been picking up singles by nudging it to leg side, misses this time and his hit while on back foot. That would probably have gone on to hit middle and leg 410/9
View dismissal CFK van Wyk b Dilshan 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
105.5 bowled him! Oh they are crumbling now. It was an innocuous tossed up delivery on the stumps and the batsman tried to defend it and also push it to cover at the same time, played inside the line and loses his off stump. What a waste! 291/5
View dismissal TD Astle lbw b Herath 3 30 36 0 0 8.33
116.5 No 3 for Herath! Astle was playing the spinners well, but he didn't spot the carrom ball from Herath and decided to leave the ball seeing that it was flighted outside off, the ball pitched and came in, and hit him plumb in front and since he wasn't offering a shot, it became an easy decision 300/6
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell c Herath b Randiv 24 50 37 2 0 64.86
130.3 charges down and heaves this one on the leg side, but he hasn't got the distance and Herath at deep midwicket just gobbles that one up. Randiv gets his first. 346/7
View dismissal TG Southee b Herath 15 41 34 0 0 44.11
141.2 knocked him over! It is bowled slow and on the middle stump, Southee, who was holding himself back for a while, goes for the big heave and is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. He misses and the ball hits the top of off and middle 374/8
JS Patel not out 25 49 45 2 1 55.55

152.6 leaves this one and is bowled! That is no. 6 for Herath. It was the arm-ball this time and Boult shouldered arms with the confidence of a top-order batsman. Wasn't long before his confidence was shattered. 412/10

38.3 edged and gone! He continues bowling the length across the left-hander, and Para goes forward to defend that. The ball carries on with the angle, takes an outside edge and it is a simple catch for the keeper. Taylor looks mighty relieved 102/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Southee 5 11 8 1 0 62.50
2.4 takes off the middle! Southee bowls it a full length and that goes straight on in the gap between the pad and the bat as Dilshan tries to drive it straight without any feet movement. Reminds me a bit of the delivery he bowled earlier this year to Tendulkar. Dilshan was a little late and played outside the line of the ball 7/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Boult b Southee 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
2.6 caught at fine leg! Southee is on fire, he bowls a quick short delivery on the body which didn't get too high. Sanga went for the pull but since his weight was backwards because of the pace, he couldn't control the shot and hit it straight down the throat of Boult at fine leg, who takes a good catch as he was close to the boundary. 7/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Williamson b Boult 4 11 5 1 0 80.00
5.1 caught at gully! Boult strikes this time. After troubling Mahela in the last over, he bowls it full outside off. Mahela goes for the drive without getting close to the ball and edges it straight to gully 12/3
View dismissal AD Mathews c Guptill b Southee 47 175 111 5 1 42.34
40.3 Guptill buckethands! Angelo falls short of his half-century. Another one for Southee. This was bowled at length outside off and Angelo pushed at it away from his body. The edge flies low to the right of Guptill at second slip and he swallows that one with a one-handed brute of a dive. Sri Lanka in further trouble, only 15 mins to lunch.. 103/5
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c Guptill b Boult 76 226 167 5 0 45.50
89.5 edged to Guptill! The new ball has done it for the kiwis, and it is not going to be a century for Samaraweera. After bringing two balls in, this one leaves the batsman after pitching on the middle stump. He gets squared up and the edge carries at a comfortable height to Guptill at second slip. 225/7
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Williamson b Patel 12 45 25 1 0 48.00
49.6 caught at deep backward square! Prasanna tries to sweep this tossed up delivery from outside the off stump, the ball turns and he is not in control of the shot, the ball takes a top-edge and Kane Williamson runs in from deep backward square and takes a diving catch 128/6
View dismissal S Randiv lbw b Boult 39 179 117 3 0 33.33
91.2 a boulter!! fuller length delivery on the middle stump line, full as in almost a yorker, it swings big in the air and hits the batsman on his pads in front of leg. There was some doubt about the bat being involved but I think it looks ok. 232/8
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Taylor b Southee 6 16 9 1 0 66.66
92.5 edged to first slip! and that is the five-for for Southee. Bowls it full just outside off and that curves away, Kula stayed back to that one when he should have been forward and it's a regulation catch low to the left for Taylor at first slip 240/9

7.1 edged and taken at gully! the new ball does the damage. It was back of length outside off, bounces a little more than what he anticipates and as he tries to defend that off the back foot, the ball takes the edge and flies to Dilshan, who fumbles it, but luckily for him the ball just pops up in front of his face again and he makes no mistake the second time. 32/1

14.6 stumped! Beautifully done by Prasanna. The ball was beauty too. It was tossed up on the off stump and drew the batsman forward, but dipped and turned away. McCullum was already stretched and was falling forward and the wicketkeeper removes the bails in a flash. Macca goes just before lunch 56/2

19.5 edged to first slip! Loose shot by Williamson gives Kula his first wicket. That was bowled on a length, but it was a touch wider and moved away, the batsman chased it away from the body and edged it straight to the lone slip. One of the first innings' centurion back in the hut now. 74/3

51.5 from Herath, at the non-striker's end! Taylor pushed this one towards wide long on for a couple and called for two immediately, Southee was slow to turn and said no when Taylor had come back quite a long way. The throw was accurate and Taylor had no chance. 180/8

19.6 and another one bites the dust! This one is bowled fulled and swings back in to Flynn who was half-stretching forward in defence. The ball evades the bat, hits the pad first and then the bat, the umpire has no hesitation in giving that one. Second for Kula and he is on a hattrick. This match is getting interesting more and more interesting by the minute. That would have taken the off stump out 74/4

He is not able to control this tickle to leg side and plays it straight to the hands of the fielder. That was more of an inside edge actually. He wanted to defend it towards mid-on 75/5

This time though, he gets hit on the pad and the ball drops on to his leg stump. He looks behind in disbelief. Bracewell is ecstatic 41/3
13.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, edged to the keeper! It's all falling apart very quickly! It was another short of length outside off, and Mahela, much like two balls ago, stays on the back foot and plays inside the line. The edge carries to the keeper comfortably and now Bracewell has two too. 46/4

60.6 to HAPW Jayawardene, caught behind! What a ripper! It was a perfect legspinner's delivery, flighted pitches round about off, then grips the surface, and turns and bounces. Prasanna came forward and the ball took the shoulder of the bat and was well taken by the keeper 119/6
