New Zealand 15/1   KS Williamson 1* (1b)
4.1

Malinga to Williamson, no run, another outside edge, but the batsman played this one with soft hands and it dropped way short of the fielder at first slip

4.2

Malinga to Williamson, no run, and they go up for an appeal for caught behind now, but the bowler doesn't show much interest. There was nothing in it as it went past the outside edge

4.3

Malinga to Williamson, no run, short delivery this time, the batsman ducks under it easily

4.4

Malinga to Williamson, 2 runs, fuller length delivery outside off, the batsman gets a thick outside edge towards third man and he is quick to get back for a second run

4.5

Malinga to Williamson, no run, another one goes past the outside edge as Kane W plays inside the line

4.6

Malinga to Williamson, no run, back of length delivery outside off, defended off the back foot towards off

New Zealand 17/1   KS Williamson 3* (7b)
5.3

Eranga to Williamson, 3 runs, short of length delivery outside off, the batsman stands tall and punches it through extra cover for what looked like a couple, but sloppy work by the fielder (Chandimal) allows extra runs

New Zealand 26/1   KS Williamson 6* (8b)
6.1

Malinga to Williamson, no run, length ball wide outside off, the batsman goes back and chops it straight to point

6.2

Malinga to Williamson, no run, fuller length delivery just outside off, the batsman comes forward and defends it solidly to the off side

6.3

Malinga to Williamson, no run, pushes it fuller and wider outside off, the batsman comes forward and lets it go through to the keeper

6.4

Malinga to Williamson, no run, it pitches on a length wide outside off and goes further away, the batsman leaves it alone

6.5

Malinga to Williamson, no run, beautiful delivery! This one is closer to the off stump line and the batsman has to play at it, but it leaves him at the last moment

6.6

Malinga to Williamson, no run, this one is even better! It pitches short of good length around off stump and the batsman has to play at it again. Kane W tries to defend it off the back foot, but the ball just leaves him at the last moment. The slip cordon goes up immediately, the umpire says no to the appeal, but Angelo asks for a review. Oh that one has gone to waste as that one just went past the outside edge and flicked the trousers on the way to the keeper

New Zealand 26/1   KS Williamson 6* (14b)
7.2

Herath to Williamson, no run, oye! Super delivery, it was tossed up, pitches on off stump and then spins sharply past the outside edge

7.3

Herath to Williamson, 2 runs, tossed up and full on the middle stump line, the batsman sweeps it fine on the leg side and Malinga from deep backward square leg has to run all the way to get that

7.4

Herath to Williamson, no run, tossed up again and the batsman tries to paddle it fine, but is not able to beat the fielder at short fine leg

7.5

Herath to Williamson, FOUR, bad delivery, it was short and way down the leg side, the batsman goes for a pull and gets a top edge over the short fine leg fielder

7.6

Herath to Williamson, no run, fuller on off, the batsman comes forward and defends it solidly

New Zealand 35/1   KS Williamson 12* (19b 1x4)
8.4

Malinga to Williamson, no run, length delivery wide outside off, the batsman goes back and punches it to mid-off

8.5

Malinga to Williamson, 4 runs, he waits on the back foot and punches the length delivery through extra cover, they take four of it. Good running

8.6

Malinga to Williamson, OUT, he is gone this time! It was a slower delivery and it was a high full-toss. Kane Williamson totally lost it in the flight. He tried to nudge it towards the leg side, but was hit on the thigh pad while he was ducking, right in front of the middle stump. Did he get a bat on that? I don't think so. It was hitting the top of the middle. Kane Williamson asks for a review, maybe in the hope that it would have gone over the top, but that was dipping sharply. Malinga strikes and New Zealand lose a review

KS Williamson lbw b Malinga 16 (29m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

New Zealand 48/2   KS Williamson 16 (22b 1x4)
