View dismissal BB McCullum c Tharanga b Muralitharan 39 33 22 2 4 177.27
8.1 and he's gone! Tossed up outside off stump, McCullum sweeps from where it landed and can only slog it out to Tharanga at deep midwicket, who pouches a simple catch into his lap, Murali gets his revenge 82/2
View dismissal SP Fleming* b Maharoof 38 29 24 6 0 158.33
7.2 bowled 'em! Slower ball on a good length on middle and off, Fleming doesnt expect it to come on that slowly, swings across the line and gets beaten all ends up and his furniture is disturbed! Maharoof gets the crucial breakthrough, but what a start from New Zealand 80/1
View dismissal JEC Franklin lbw b Jayasuriya 18 17 15 2 1 120.00
11.4 and now there's the wicket!!! its a flat delivery, fired in, Franklin tries his hand at the reverse sweep, misses the ball and is rapped in front - LBWs dont come any easier for the umpires! 107/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Muralitharan 21 25 21 2 0 100.00
14.4 and again, but this time its out! goes for a slog sweep, misses the ball again, the difference this time is he is hit in front of the off stump, and the umpire reckons it would have crashed into ths stumps. That's out! 131/4
View dismissal NJ Astle b Jayasuriya 19 21 13 1 1 146.15
17.3 and now Jayasuriya gets his revenge, its fired in on leg stump and Astle tries the same shot as the previous ball, misses the line and the ball crashes into leg stump - sound of timber as they say, and Astle's short innings comes to an end 150/6
View dismissal JAH Marshall c Silva b Jayasuriya 1 3 4 0 0 25.00
15.4 and thats another wicket. tossed up delivery, its driven off the backfoot, comes off the inner half, its spooned up in the air at mid wicket, Chamara Silva times his jump to perfection, can't get it the first time, but grabs it on the second attempt. That's another NZ batsman walking back 135/5
View dismissal PD McGlashan st †Sangakkara b Silva 5 11 12 0 0 41.66
18.6 cross batted heave again, McGlashan misses the ball and loses balance, steps out and is found wanting by some quick glovework from Sangakkara who gathers the ball neatly and whips off the bails - no need to refer it to the TV Umpire there, its out! 156/7
AR Adams not out 6 9 5 0 0 120.00
View dismissal SE Bond b Vaas 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
19.4 you miss I hit! change in pace from Vaas, rolls his fingers over the ball, bowls it full and straight, Bond tries to make room and hit it to the offside, misses it and the ball hits the base of the middle stump 159/8
