Dilshan to Vettori, no run, flatter delivery outside off, draws the batsman out, then turns past the outside edge. Lots of noise now around the bat

15.6

Herath to Vettori, 1 run, tossed up on middle stump line, Vettori goes down on his knee and paddles it fine on the leg side for a single. He is slow to turn as Baz was looking for a couple

New Zealand 72/5   DL Vettori 1* (2b)

16.1

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, flighted and full on the leg stump, Vettori wanted to drive, but ends up chipping it towards mid-on.. Lucky that he didn't hit it too hard

16.2

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, comes forward and defends it solidly to the off side

16.3

Dilshan to Vettori, 1 run, on the pads this time, he dabs it towards backward square leg for a quick single

New Zealand 73/5   DL Vettori 2* (5b)

Herath to Vettori, 1 run, he goes deep into the crease, allows the ball to turn a little, then dabs it towards square leg for a single

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, pushed through on off stump, the batsman comes forward and defends it towards point

18.2

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, comes forward again, pushes it to cover

18.3

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, quicker and fuller outside off, the batsman pushes it to cover off the front foot

18.4

Dilshan to Vettori, no run, fuller this time, straying down the leg side, the batsman goes for a sweep, but gets hit on the pads, everyone appeals, but that was going down

18.5

Dilshan to Vettori, 1 run, full and tossed up on off, the batsman drives it to long off for a single

New Zealand 77/5   DL Vettori 4* (11b)

19.1

Malinga to Vettori, no run, length delivery on off stump, the batsman gets behind it and defends it back to the bowler

19.2

Malinga to Vettori, 1 run, here comes the yorker, but well played by Vettori as he opens the face and runs it down to third man

19.4

Malinga to Vettori, no run, another yorker, swinging slightly away in the air and it beats the bat

19.5

Malinga to Vettori, 1 wide, he moves way across outside the off stump and Malinga fires a yorker, but Vettori is lucky that the ball was way down the leg side.. His stumps were totally exposed

19.5

Malinga to Vettori, no run, and another yorker, this time outside off. Vettori digs it out towards off, but Dilshan at backward point makes a good save to prevent a single

19.6

Malinga to Vettori, OUT, that's game over for Vettori! It's that slower ball and it was a yorker, hits the batsman right in front and that is an easy decision for the umpire. But Vettori was disappointed and rightly so, the ball had hit the inside edge on its way. Unfortunately for him, his friend Kane W had used up the review earlier...

DL Vettori lbw b Malinga 5 (21m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

New Zealand 80/6   DL Vettori 5 (16b)
