View dismissal WU Tharanga b Gillespie 22 80 50 2 0 44.00
17.1 Gillespie is on fire. Another strike! Full in length, on the middle stump line, held its line, Tharanga is late in leaning forward, just pushes down the wrong line, the ball thuds into the thigh pad and knocks back the furniture. 103/3
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Mason b Gillespie 70 69 44 7 5 159.09
15.1 The carnage comes to an end. Jayasuriya leaves the slaughter house. He attempts to pull a short of length delivery, ends up top-edging it to fine-leg. End of the entertainment. New Zealand won't be complaining though. What a knock. RIpper of a knock. he just walloped them everywhere. 102/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Fleming b Gillespie 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
15.3 Gone off 2nd ball! fuller length ball outside off stump, shapes away from Jayawardene, batsman moves forward and follows the ball, pushes and gets the outside edge, Fleming dives to his right in full length and takes it low down, amazing catch and New Zealand back into the game 102/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Taylor b Bond 79 131 103 8 1 76.69
47.1 Sangakkar falls. Quite a big wicket this. Just three overs left but he was in a murderous mood. He goes for a pull shot but ends up skying it to midwicket for Taylor to hold a dolly. Very valuable knock, steered his side through the crisis. 232/5
View dismissal MS Atapattu c †McCullum b Adams 34 99 75 2 0 45.33
41.3 Got him! Atapattu is a goner. He charges down the track, backing away in the process, and throws his bat at a length delivery but only suceeds in getting a nick behind. Simple catch. 194/4
CK Kapugedera not out 10 37 17 0 0 58.82
View dismissal MF Maharoof c Adams b Bond 21 10 11 1 2 190.90
49.3 Gone! banged it short and outside offstump, Maharoof swatted it, like a down the line forehand, in the air, and down the ground, Adams moves to his right, and takes a smart catch. The neat little cameo comes to an end 256/6

View dismissal BB McCullum c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 17 18 13 4 0 130.76
3.5 Super catch from Sangakkara! Maharoof realises the new year has long dawned and hustles McCullum with a good-length delivery that jags back in and cuts McCullum into half. McCullum stabs at it and it goes off the inside edge and goes to left of the keeper. A great acrobatic effort from Sangakkara does the trick. Super delivery that. Wonderful nip-backer. 17/2
View dismissal SP Fleming* lbw b Vaas 0 10 5 0 0 0.00
2.1 Gone! Vaas nails Fleming! Landed on a length, around middle stump, moved in and Fleming was beaten on the forward prod. It was probably brushing the legstump. Umpire Baxter definitely thinks so. 5/1
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Vaas 0 11 7 0 0 0.00
4.2 Taylor is stitched up by Vaas. After harassing him with deliveries angling away, he brings this one back in. Taylor is surprised, and is caught at the crease, the ball thuds into the pad, right in front of the middle stump. Dead duck! Sri Lanka are running hot here. That 263 looks a long distance away 17/3
View dismissal PG Fulton lbw b Malinga 9 33 13 2 0 69.23
11.1 Strikes rightaway! Beaten for pace! Full on a length, outside the offstump, comes back in, Fulton is driving down the wrong lane and the ball thuds into his pad, in front of the offstump, and he is a goner. Five down for 37 and New Zealand are limping here at Auckland. 37/5
View dismissal HJH Marshall lbw b Vaas 3 9 10 0 0 30.00
6.4 Another one bites the dust! And then there were six. Again Vaas brings one back in, after a taking out few deliveries, and the champion bowler goes up in screeching appeal and ends up with a smile. Marshall had got his front feet too much across, tries to play around it and is trapped in front. 25/4
CD McMillan not out 29 91 64 5 0 45.31
View dismissal AR Adams lbw b Malinga 1 9 7 0 0 14.28
13.1 Ouch! Fast and furious, swung in late and crashed into the left boot of Adams. He is hobbling in pain and to his horror, he has been given out lbw. The first bad decision of the innings. It was going to miss the legstump. definitely. Now Adams has to limp his way back into the hutch. He would need some treatment for that hit to his feet. 39/6
View dismissal SE Bond c & b Malinga 2 21 11 0 0 18.18
17.3 Malinga cons the ex cop. With a slower one. Bond is completely deceived, ends up playing too early, across the line, and the leading edge is swallowed up by a delighted Malinga. And then there were three. And er... Muralitharan is yet to bowl. 49/7
View dismissal MR Gillespie c †Sangakkara b Fernando 0 7 4 0 0 0.00
18.6 Fernando doesn't want to be left behind. And he gets rid of Gillespie. Again Gillespie stands outside leg, shuffles away even futher, and pushes at a length-delivery on the offstump line. Edge and taken. New Zealand are in the danger of being shot out for their lowest score. Only McMillan can save them from that embarrasment, but will he be stranded? 54/8
View dismissal JS Patel b Muralitharan 6 23 14 1 0 42.85
24.2 Murali joins in the carnage. Big offbreak, lands well outside the offstump, short in length, Patel sees the line and the length and shapes to cut. Mistake. The ball rips in and keeps a touch low, and thuds into the middle stump. 71/9
View dismissal MJ Mason lbw b Muralitharan 1 7 13 0 0 7.69
26.3 The series is level! Murali traps Mason with a fullish one. New Zealand are shot out for their second lowest score ever. 74 was that mark and now they have been bundled out, for one run less, by swing of Vaas, pace of Malinga and the guile of Murali. It was tossed up, full, on middle and leg stump line, Mason has a swing across the line and is trapped. It would have hit the leg stump. The series is alive and all to play for in the Tuesday's decider. 73/10
