  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Dilshan b Chameera 30 30 28 4 1 107.14
7.3 slapped away but Dilshan comes into play on the field. Dug in outside off at 144ks, Guptill rises on his toes and cuts it with Dilshan taking a good catch, diving low to his left 42/1
View dismissal TWM Latham c Pradeep b Vandersay 42 76 47 5 1 89.36
17.4 Latham connects the sweep this time but he top edges it to fine leg, that's a soft dismissal! It was an innocuous delivery down the leg side and Latham tried the sweep again, the ball took the leading edge to go high and Pradeep did well to go forward and to his left to get his hands under it 102/2
View dismissal KS Williamson* c Chameera b Siriwardana 59 102 73 7 0 80.82
32.1 oh my, KW has given it away, he has slapped a full toss straight to mid-on! He came down the track as Siriwardana angled it in from round the wicket and KW swatted the waist-high full toss to mid-on where Chameera pouched it around his waist height 163/5
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Mathews b Vandersay 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
17.6 got him this time, caught at slip, Taylor has gone for a duck! There was a bit of flight, it was just outside off and Taylor decided to go back this time to push it into the off side but the ball spun away marginally and took the outside edge to head to Mathews at slip who grabbed it with both hands 102/3
View dismissal HM Nicholls b Chameera 20 35 31 1 0 64.51
27.3 oh, the angle has worked, Nicholls has dragged one on! Nicholls didn't move much for that and was looking to push at that outside off, the ball was angling away but he played outside the line and the inside edge made the ball crash onto the leg stump 143/4
View dismissal MJ Santner run out (Chameera) 38 63 46 2 1 82.60
41.5 from Chameera, dug in short again, this is around off. Santner pulls and misses, he is smacked above the waistline as the ball dribbles onto the pitch, adjacent to the off side. Chameera, though, runs in, swoops down, and under-arm flicks onto the stumps, despite a desperate dive from Santner after turning back. Bracewell had called for a single, but Santner, who does the splits, can't drift back to the crease in time. Sharp work from Chameera 215/7
View dismissal L Ronchi c Kapugedera b Pradeep 7 21 13 0 0 53.84
37.4 the short ball works for Pradeep. Banged in as Pradeep hits the middle of the deck, and hurries Ronchi onto the pull. He skies it over the square leg umpire off the front foot, hit high on the bat. Kapu settles under the ball; another single-digit score for Ronchi 191/6
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Pradeep 30 54 34 2 0 88.23
49.1 Bracewell holes out to Senanayake off a full toss. Slogged into the lap of the sub fielder. Little New Year's present for Sena 257/8

View dismissal MD Gunathilaka c Taylor b McClenaghan 65 60 45 7 4 144.44
12.4 the stand is broken, Gunathilaka has handed it straight to slip! The ball was short with some room, Gunathilaka stayed back and chopped it late, to guide it to third man, but it went straight to Taylor at wide slip. McClenaghan is pumped! 98/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Taylor) 91 153 92 9 0 98.91
33.5 from Williamson, run out appeal and Dilshan has to put in a dive, NZ look confident! Dilshan tucked the ball that was turning in to backward square leg and took off for the single that never existed, so was sent back and an accurate throw meant he had to dive in the end, but it wasn't enough 209/2
