Eranga to Ronchi, no run, beautiful delivery, it beats the bat outside off. He bowled it from wide of the crease, it was angled in, and straightened late past the outside edge

1.2

Eranga to Ronchi, 1 run, length ball outside off, the batsman pushes it to the right of point for first runs

New Zealand 1/0   L Ronchi 1* (2b)
2.1

Malinga to Ronchi, no run, short of length delivery outside off, Ronchi watches it closely and lets it go through

2.2

Malinga to Ronchi, no run, attempts the slower yorker, but luckily for the batsman, it's a full toss on the pads. Ronchi didn't read it very well and played it belatedly towards midwicket, off the toe-end of his bat

2.3

Malinga to Ronchi, no run, he follows it up with a sharp bouncer and the batsman does well to sway out of the way

2.4

Malinga to Ronchi, FOUR, another slower ball this time and it's a full toss, on the middle stump line, the batsman chips it over the bowler's head for an easy boundary

2.5

Malinga to Ronchi, no run, another short delivery this time, the batsman ducks under it

2.6

Malinga to Ronchi, no run, length delivery wide outside off, the batsman tries to cut it hard but is beaten by the pace on that

New Zealand 11/0   L Ronchi 5* (8b 1x4)
3.2

Eranga to Ronchi, 2 runs, fuller length this time, but again on to the pads, the batsman flicks it to deep backward square leg for more runs

3.3

Eranga to Ronchi, no run, very short delivery this time round but Ronchi gets out of the way easily

3.4

Eranga to Ronchi, OUT, here comes the first wicket! It was a length delivery outside off, very quick as well, and Ronchi wanted to push it to the off side without moving his feet, but the bowler gets some extra bounce off the pitch and the ball flicks the outside edge on its way to the keeper's gloves

L Ronchi c †Sangakkara b Eranga 7 (15m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

New Zealand 14/1   L Ronchi 7 (11b 1x4)
