View dismissal TWM Latham c Kaushal b Eranga 27 106 65 3 0 41.53
19.3 leading edge, that's an easy catch for Kaushal at point, Latham is gone! It wasn't a wicket-taking delivery really, swinging down the leg side, Latham played it early trying to tuck it to the leg side and the edge looped towards point. The ball had actually cut in after pitching, inducing the edge 60/2
View dismissal HD Rutherford b Lakmal 18 73 34 4 0 52.94
13.1 that's through! What a sight for the bowler, the off stump went flying. Change of ends worked or not, change of length worked for sure. It was fuller on the off stump, Rutherford drove for the angle but the ball nipped in after pitching on length and crashed into the off stump 37/1
View dismissal KS Williamson b Prasad 54 160 98 7 0 55.10
46.2 that's gone through, Williamson is bowled! That was a beautiful delivery, nipping in from outside off, KW leaned forward to defend but the ball sneaked through the bat and pad gap to hit the top of the stumps 214/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor run out (Silva) 7 18 8 1 0 87.50
23.4 from Eranga, oh Taylor's run out, that was a mix up and Taylor slipped on top of that! He tucked the incoming delivery off the pads towards backward square leg and set off for a quick single, KW responded initially but stopped after a couple of steps, and just when Taylor turned back to get back in the crease, he slipped and was fell short as Kaushal Silva got a direct hit 88/3
View dismissal BB McCullum* c Karunaratne b Kaushal 195 202 134 18 11 145.52
65.5 he's gone! No double-hundred, no more records! Gets down to reach the ball on the full, had moved outside leg as well to carve it wide of long-off again, but the fielder was quick to move to his left, dive forward and pouch a good catch to give Kaushal his maiden Test wicket. Christchurch gives the New Zealand captain a standing ovation as he walks back. What a treat after eight years without Test cricket in the city 367/5
View dismissal JDS Neesham c Sangakkara b Mathews 85 129 80 10 3 106.25
74.2 gone, superb catch from Sanga at slip! The ball was angled across the batsman outside the off stump, Neesham played it late and wanted to run it down to third man bu the thick edge went wide of the keeper and Sanga dived low to his right for a very good and quick catch he completed with both hands 420/6
View dismissal BJ Watling lbw b Mathews 26 61 51 2 0 50.98
80.3 another loud appeal for lbw, another one given out, but Watling doesn't review it. This was a sharp swinging delivery coming in from outside off, Watling looked to defend but missed and was struck in front of middle and leg. Watling spoke to Craig once he was given out, and decided not to review it. Replays show that was missing leg stump, though. And that's stumps 429/7

View dismissal TG Southee c Thirimanne b Mathews 0 10 8 0 0 0.00
82.5 that's a good catch at second slip, Mathews has struck again! He drew the outside edge by pitching the good-length delivery outside off, Southee drove tentatively and Thirimanne dived to his right to complete the low catch with both his hands. Bit of extra bounce as well 431/8
View dismissal N Wagner c Kaushal b Lakmal 4 12 8 1 0 50.00
85.4 straight to point, Wagner has given it away! It was a short delivery well outside off, Wagner played it on the up and handed a simple catch to Kaushal's left. Second wicket for Lakmal 440/9
View dismissal TA Boult c †Jayawardene b Lakmal 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
85.5 that's the last wicket, he's caught behind and the SL players are celebrating but the umpire is unmoved, Boult's reaction also showed as if nothing had happened. Short of length delivery outside off with some outswing, he tried to defend on the back foot and was beaten, SL review it! Replays confirm there was an edge and HotSpot confirms it too. Decision overturned, NZ are all out 441/10
