View dismissal BB McCullum c Dilshan b Mathews 46 108 72 5 0 63.88
21.5 Baz too is gone. Two quick wickets as Sri Lanka try to claw their way back into the game. McCullum tried to turn a length delivery to the on side but gets a leading edge towards backward point where Dilshan lunges forward to grab it 128/2
View dismissal JD Ryder c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 74 98 58 10 1 127.58
19.6 Ryder falls after a fab knock. He goes for a big swing across the line but edges it to Sangakkara. What a fine start he has given NZ, though. 125/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill b Malinga 66 126 76 3 1 86.84
47.6 Clatter! The stumps are in disarray. Yep, it was the yorker. Nice, fast, straight and at the base of the off and middle stump line. Fine innings from Guptill ends. 284/7
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Jayawardene b Jayasuriya 4 4 2 1 0 200.00
22.5 Boy o Boy, Sri Lanka are roaring back into the game. Triple strike. It was floated outside off stump, he leans forward to push hard at it and it balloons off the outer edge off the shoulder of the bat to backward point. Gone! Wobble time for NZ. 133/3
View dismissal GD Elliott lbw b Mathews 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
23.5 Dead plumb in front. Nailed him in front of middle. It was fullish delivery sliding towards middle, Elliot was on the shuffle, trying to work it across the line, misses it and has to return to the hutch. What a collapse. 140/4
View dismissal NT Broom c Jayawardene b Jayasuriya 15 25 21 2 0 71.42
30.2 What a tame dismissal. They seem to be out doing each other. Short and wide, cut weakly, a dolly of a catch, to backward point. Sanath can't believe it himself 161/5
View dismissal DL Vettori* c sub (CK Kapugedera) b Jayasuriya 48 50 44 4 1 109.09
41.4 Sort of tame dismissal again. It was floated full outside off, Vettori chips it straightly to long-on. He didn't hit it hard, neither did he go along the ground but he just chipped it straight to the fielder 230/6

View dismissal TM Dilshan c sub (JS Patel) b Mills 41 38 31 7 1 132.25
8.5 Dilshan falls after an electrifying cameo. It was the short lifting delivery that climbs on him and he mistimed the hook straight to deep square-leg. The other day he said, his wife keeps telling him don't hook don't hook and that he says yes but goes to do exactly that! And he has fallen to that shot now. Having said that, that's the shot that fetches him lots and lots of runs. No use shelving that. But but .. you should listen to your wife now and then I say! 67/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Mills b Tuffey 24 32 18 4 0 133.33
7.5 And he has combusted now. Couldn't escape the adrenalin rush. He moved down the track and tried to pull a shorter delivery over midwicket but top-edged it straight up to midwicket. 66/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Taylor b Franklin 11 25 13 1 0 84.61
12.3 Sanga is gone now! 85 for 3 and wobble time. Sanga walked down the track and towards the off side, Franklin shortened the length and hit the deck outside off. Sanga pushed hard at it and edged to first slip. 85/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene b Vettori 77 140 85 6 2 90.58
38.2 Dan the man strikes with a big wicket! He pushed this one through quicker, Mahela was looking to lift it over the off-side field but missed it completely. Clatter! The off stump is pegged back. it landed on a length on the off and middle line and crashed into the off stump. Excellent knock but he has to go now. New Zealand move ahead in this fascinating game. 219/7
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c Broom b Vettori 17 30 18 3 0 94.44
18.4 Aha! Vettori gets his man on a similar shot. It was a similar delivery, Samaraweera went for that cut again but this one bounced a bit more on him and he cut it straight to backward point. Dan the man has a triumphant smile. 114/4
View dismissal SHT Kandamby run out (Elliott/Vettori) 11 24 19 1 0 57.89
24.3 Vettori to Jayawardene, Kandamby is run out. What a mix up. it was turned towards deep midwicket, they completed the first run, turned for the second and the hesitation started here. A slight stutter, brief pause from both before they scamper across but Kandamby doesn't make it in time 137/5
View dismissal AD Mathews c Guptill b Franklin 2 10 11 0 0 18.18
27.2 Angelo crashes out of the chase. He took a step forward and went for a big lofted off drive but the bottom-hand came off the handle and he ended up punching the ball straight to short extra cover 141/6

View dismissal T Thushara c Guptill b Mills 11 13 14 0 1 78.57
42.1 And then they were two. It was the short-of-length delivery angling across from Thushara who top-edged the pull to square-leg 243/8
View dismissal SL Malinga c Taylor b Mills 15 13 10 1 1 150.00
44.6 Just one more wicket now for NZ to wrap things up. Malinga swings a full toss straight to long-on. Gone! 54 from 30 but looks a distant dream now 262/9
View dismissal BAW Mendis c Vettori b Tuffey 3 8 6 0 0 50.00
46.4 And it's all over. Full delivery, dragged straight to mid-on. Fine win for NZ. The group is split wide open. Sri Lanka are virtually out of this tournament. Sorrow and joy collide. 277/10
