View dismissal BB McCullum b Kulasekara 1 5 7 0 0 14.28
1.5 Clatter! McCullum was expecting another off cutter but was in for a shock. Death rattle! It landed on a length around the off stump and McCullum shaped to play for the incoming ball. Mistake! The ball held its line to knock out the off stump! 4/2
View dismissal AJ Redmond lbw b Kulasekara 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
1.1 Wicket first ball! Trapped in front. It cut in from the off stump line to hit him on the kneel roll in front off middle and leg. It would have crashed into the stumps. The height was ok and so was the line. 3/1
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Mathews 5 5 5 0 0 100.00
2.3 Dead duck! Right in front! As Fred Trueman would have said, "what is going off out there?! " It was full and it shaped in late. Taylor had pressed the front leg too far across and had to try playing around the front pad. Too late. The ball thuds into the pad. GOne! 8/4
View dismissal RJ Nicol lbw b Kulasekara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
1.6 Whoa! Another one for Kulasekara! Three in this over. What a start. This one cuts back in and it moved past the feeble defensive poke to hit him in front of middle and leg 4/3
View dismissal DL Vettori* c †Sangakkara b Mendis 27 39 24 2 0 112.50
10.6 Big wicket. Dan is gone. It was tossed outside off and Vettori lunged across to play the slog-sweep. The ball goes very close to the toe end of the bat and Sanga takes it. Vettori seems unhappy; he suggests that the bat hit the ground 58/6
View dismissal GJ Hopkins run out (Kapugedera/†Sangakkara) 1 10 8 0 0 12.50
4.5 Mathews to Vettori, Hopkins is run out Wicket no 5. It was a slow cutter, cut away to point region .. Kapugedera fires the throw to Sanga who breaks the stumps. Hopkins tried to dive in but is too late. 13/5
NL McCullum not out 36 53 39 2 0 92.30
View dismissal JDP Oram c Kapugedera b Malinga 3 10 7 0 0 42.85
13.6 It landed on a length and stopped a touch on Oram who was squared-up and tried to check his shot. He got a leading edge and the simple catch was taken at short cover 67/7
View dismissal KD Mills lbw b Mendis 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
14.3 Googly does the trick. It broke back in from outside off and Mills was trying to play the sweep shot. He missed it completely and was struck perhaps just outside the line of the off stump. 68/8
View dismissal TG Southee b Malinga 4 7 9 0 0 44.44
17.2 The off stump has gone for a jog in Florida. Full and straight and that does the trick. It was a full in length on the off stump and the batsman tries to play across the line. Huge mistake. Gone! 81/9
View dismissal AJ McKay b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
17.3 Oh Malinga you beauty! The off stump has gone for a sprint this time. It flies to the on side. Again, full and straight and it was enough to slide under the bat and take out the off side 81/10
