Sri Lanka tour of New Zealand, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

Sri Lanka in New Zealand ODI Series - 2nd ODI

New Zealand v Sri Lanka

New Zealand won by 1 wicket (with 0 balls remaining)

1.4

Mason to Jayasuriya, OUT, gone! Bowled! This one pitches short of a good length on middle and leg, Jayasuriya's quickly into position to pull but again gets all tangled up, and the result is that he chops onto the base of leg stump, and he's a goner!

ST Jayasuriya b Mason 1 (7m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Sri Lanka 4/1   WU Tharanga 3* (2b)   MJ Mason 0.4-0-0-1

4.2

Gillespie to Jayawardene, OUT, cleaned him up! Full, swinging delivery outside off stump, nips in off the seam and Jayawardene just stands there and drives at it, closing the face of the bat, and the ball scoots past off the inside edge onto off stump

DPMD Jayawardene b Gillespie 4 (11m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 14/2   WU Tharanga 8* (11b)   MR Gillespie 2.2-0-11-1

11.4

Mason to Tharanga, OUT, gone this time! He pushes in one on a good length outside off stump, the corridor of uncertainty, as they say, and Tharanga plays away from the body looking for the cut, and the result is a thick edge into the lap of Ross Taylor at first slip! Mason has his revenge!

WU Tharanga c Taylor b Mason 23 (51m 29b 3x4 0x6) SR: 79.31

Sri Lanka 50/3   KC Sangakkara 19* (26b 4x4)   MJ Mason 5.4-1-18-2

24.2

Vettori to Atapattu, OUT, bowled him, sweet revenge! Vettori tosses in the arm ball marginally outside off stump, it pitches on a good length and scoots in between Atapattu's tame back-foot drive and castles into off stump! That was a useless shot, you'd have to say, he was neither here nor there, and pays the price

MS Atapattu b Vettori 22 (53m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 62.85

Sri Lanka 102/4   KC Sangakkara 47* (67b 8x4)   DL Vettori 2.2-0-7-1

41.4

Adams to Silva, OUT, Sangakkara is run out backing up too far! Silva drove straight back at Adams who stretched one hand out and got fingertips to it, the ball crashed into the stumps at the non-striker's end and Sangakkara was found short by the third umpire

KC Sangakkara run out 89 (155m 122b 10x4 0x6) SR: 72.95

Sri Lanka 176/5   LPC Silva 31* (49b 2x4)   AR Adams 7.4-0-33-0

42.5

Franklin to Silva, OUT, caught! Silva came forward and tried to hit that over the off side, he ended up slicing it to Marshall (tell you which one in a moment) at point, simple catch but what a wicket to get at this stage!

LPC Silva c HJH Marshall b Franklin 31 (74m 53b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.49

Sri Lanka 177/6   TM Dilshan 1* (3b)   JEC Franklin 8.5-0-42-1

46.6

Gillespie to Dilshan, OUT, caught at deep square leg! It was a loose ball, a full toss on leg stump, Dilshan could have smacked that anywhere and he hit it straight to Ross Taylor who was patrolling the fence, Gillespie finishes an excellent over, just two runs off it and a wicket too

TM Dilshan c Taylor b Gillespie 8 (22m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Sri Lanka 192/7   MF Maharoof 8* (13b)   MR Gillespie 9-0-39-2
