45.2

Malinga to Oram, no run, swinging low full-toss to greet the new batsman. Oram opens the face to steer behind square but picks out point

45.3

Malinga to Oram, 1 run, full toss again, clipped straight to midwicket, Oram makes a tight single easy by virtue of his enormous strides

45.5

Malinga to Oram, FOUR, not quite the big heave to the boundary but an outside edge will do! Full and a half-open-face half-edge scoots off to the third man boundary

45.6

Malinga to Oram, no run, excellent slower yorker to finish that Oram carefully digs out back to the bowler

New Zealand 210/6   JDP Oram 5* (4b 1x4)
46.2

Muralitharan to Oram, no run, Oram gets forward very respectfully in defence

46.3

Muralitharan to Oram, 1 run, slightly cumbersome sweep around the corner earns a tight single

New Zealand 212/6   JDP Oram 6* (6b 1x4)
47.1

Dilshan to Oram, 1 run, this is pushed away carefully, New Zealand desperately in need of a crescendo

47.3

Dilshan to Oram, no run, Oram picks out point with firm cut shot. The net is closing around Oram

47.4

Dilshan to Oram, OUT, gone this time! Oram had to try something, ended up heaving high towards long-on who jogged in a few yards off the rope, steadied himself and held the chance. New Zealand's chances of posting something competitive are sliding away

JDP Oram c Jayawardene b Dilshan 7 (14m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

New Zealand 215/8   JDP Oram 7 (9b 1x4)
