2.6

4.1

Southee to Dilshan, SIX, that's far too short and Dilshan has sent the ball over the square leg boundary by rocking on to the back foot and pulling hard

4.4

Southee to Jayawardene, no run, Mahela tries to dab one that is too full and bounces sharply as well towards third man, he gets beaten. Southee appeals loudly but Brendon McCullum does not

4.5

Southee to Jayawardene, SIX, watch out in the crowd! Mahela is standing outside his crease and launches the length ball off the front foot, simply driving it high and far over deep midwicket

Sri Lanka 154/3   TG Southee 3-0-37-0

19.1

Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full and cracked out to cover, well fielded

19.2

Southee to Thirimanne, 1 run, full outside off, goes for the ramp and gets it off the toe of the bat in the air towards short long leg, doesn't get it at all and it falls short of the fielder

19.3

Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full ball on leg stump, dug out through midwicket for...just a single as the fielder scrambles well off the rope

19.4

Southee to Thirimanne, no run, full and wide enough of the attempted drive, beats the bat, dot ball!

19.5

Southee to Thirimanne, FOUR, full and wide, goes for the ramp and this time pulls it off! What a shot, picked it up from well outside off and it sails over short long leg

19.6

Southee to Thirimanne, OUT, slap into the off side off an inside edge, easy run out at point surely to the non-striker's end but I think Taylor dropped the ball, he did! Taylor dropped it and Sri Lanka have won!! But no!! On the replay the ball has deflected off Taylor's hand and deflected into the stumps!!! Amazing stuff so New Zealand have effected the run out and this is going to be a Super Over...so much checking to see what actually caused the bails to come off but it looks as if it was ball...here comes the third umpire...it's OUT!!!

HDRL Thirimanne run out 5 (10m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Sri Lanka 174/6   TG Southee 4-0-44-0
