New Zealand v Sri Lanka

New Zealand won by 1 wicket (with 81 balls remaining)

14.1

Dilshan to Franklin, no run, pushed through outside off, the batsman watches it go through to the keeper

14.2

Dilshan to Franklin, no run, flatter delivery outside off, Franklin comes forward and defends it towards cover

14.3

Dilshan to Franklin, no run, some spin there, but is was slightly short and that allowed the batsman to easily defend it towards point

14.4

Dilshan to Franklin, no run, very very loud appeal for lbw as the batsman misses his sweep shot and gets hit on the pads. They cant' t review it as they have none left, and would have been useless as it hit the gloves

14.5

Dilshan to Franklin, OUT, very loud shout again! And this time Rod Tucker waits, waits and then succumbs under pressure. It was good shout even though the batsman was pressing forward, he was hit marginally on the line of off stump. Good decision and Franklin, who was looking more composed of the two batsmen, has to go

JEC Franklin lbw b Dilshan 6 (25m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.29
