View dismissal BB McCullum run out (Kulasekara) 9 11 9 0 1 100.00
2.1 Kulasekara to Ryder, McCullum is gone, one of the most unlucky ways to be dismissed, Ryder punches the ball firmly towards Kulasekara, who gets his fingers on it and deflects onto the non-striker's stumps, McCullum was well out of his ground, the crowd erupts. Bad luck for McCullum, the ball just about brushed the bails, an inch higher and McCullum would still be there 14/1
View dismissal JD Ryder c Bandara b Kulasekara 13 23 14 2 0 92.85
4.3 Ryder is gone, change of pace from Kulasekara, Ryder was early into his shot, spoons it high towards mid-off, where Bandara completes a well-judged catch, that ball was in the air a long time but Bandara kept his cool 26/2
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Kapugedera b Bandara 29 38 25 2 1 116.00
11.2 he's gone this time, Guptill sweeps a leg stump delivery powerfully, a bit of a top edge and it sails towards Kapugedera at deep midwicket, easy catch and that's the end of Guptill 79/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Kulasekara b Mathews 60 57 45 5 1 133.33
17.6 this was a lot fuller, Taylor goes for the same shot but gets it on the toe end of the bat, Kulasekara is waiting at the third man boundary for that one, and he gobbles it up 126/5
View dismissal JDP Oram c Kulasekara b Mendis 8 22 13 0 0 61.53
16.4 Oram holes out to Kulasekara at long-off, he gave himself room and tried to launch Mendis over long-off, but gets under it too much, the ball goes very high but doesn't have enough distance on it 117/4
NT Broom not out 5 21 5 0 0 100.00
View dismissal PD McGlashan run out (Mathews/†Sangakkara) 1 2 1 0 0 100.00
18.1 from Kulasekara, full on middle and leg, the batsman shuffles across and clips it towards square leg, Mathews charges in from the boundary and picks it up just outside the circle, fires in a flat throw to Sangakkara, who takes off the bails with McGlashan just short of his crease, Sangakkara collected that one in front of the stumps instead of waiting behind 127/6
View dismissal KD Mills b Malinga 7 4 5 1 0 140.00
19.2 Malinga's yorker does the trick, fast and heading for the base of middle stump, better batsmen than Mills have had no answer to that one 136/7
View dismissal DL Vettori* b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.3 Malinga's on a hat-trick, yet again the middle stump is rocked back, Vettori was backing away an looking to cut, he misses and that's the end of Vettori, slightly shorter from Malinga this time, but good enough 136/8
