26.3 thin edge! Perera lands it on roughly the same area of the previous two deliveries, Nicol decided to go for the drive and gets a faint edge to the keeper 100/2
    6.3 the break in play has broken Latham's concentration, lands on a good length on the off stump, hint of inward movement in the air, straightens after pitching and Latham left a big gap between bat and pad, ball shaves the off stump 17/1
    33.3 Jayawardene takes a sharp catch! Tossed up on middle and off and Watling was down on his knee to slog, mistimed it and instead it went flat and Jayawardene was alert at short midwicket, timed his dive well and took it 130/3
    45.2 sharp catch at cover! Kulasekara fired that full outside off and Taylor tried to smoke that past cover, went flat to Mathews who timed his dive well, Mathews showed no emotion after taking it but SL will be relieved they've seen the back of Taylor 221/4
    not out
    48.4 that was in the air for a long time but Perera kept his eyes on it! Slower ball and McCullum went for the big hit and lofted it over the on side, it swirled and Perera hung on and fell backwards 242/5
    49.6 yorker to finish things off! Too good for Ellis, he was standing outside leg, Malinga took aim at the leg stump and the batsman couldn't get his bat down on time 250/6
