New Zealand v Sri Lanka

New Zealand won by 5 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.3

Martin to Jayasuriya, no run, New Zealand scream an appeal for the catch behind, that rose on Jayasuriya from a good length, he got tucked up and there was a noise as the ball passed the bat, looks like it hit his back arm

1.4

Martin to Jayasuriya, 1 run, pushed to mid-on for a single

Sri Lanka 7/0   ST Jayasuriya 1* (2b)

2.1

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, snorter of a ball, pitches on a length and rears sharply on Jayasuriya just outside his off stump, the ball goes through to the wicketkeeper

2.2

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, again it bounces sharply on the batsman from a short of a length, Jayasuriya jumps up and defends, the ball takes the outside edge and goes to gully on the bounce

2.3

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, bouncer, comfortably eveaded by the batsman

2.4

Bond to Jayasuriya, FOUR, poor ball, full on leg stump, Jayasuriya easily flicks it off the pads for four to the square-leg fence

2.5

Bond to Jayasuriya, OUT, Bond comes back with a peach to get his first wicket on his home ground, that pitched on off and shaped away from Jayasuriya, the length was superb and induced the batsman to play at it, the edge was taken at first slip

ST Jayasuriya c Fleming b Bond 5 (12m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Sri Lanka 11/1   ST Jayasuriya 5 (7b 1x4)
