    2.1 McCullum is gone, one of the most unlucky ways to be dismissed, Ryder punches the ball firmly towards Kulasekara, who gets his fingers on it and deflects onto the non-striker's stumps, McCullum was well out of his ground, the crowd erupts. Bad luck for McCullum, the ball just about brushed the bails, an inch higher and McCullum would still be there 14/1
    4.3 Ryder is gone, change of pace from Kulasekara, Ryder was early into his shot, spoons it high towards mid-off, where Bandara completes a well-judged catch, that ball was in the air a long time but Bandara kept his cool 26/2
    11.2 he's gone this time, Guptill sweeps a leg stump delivery powerfully, a bit of a top edge and it sails towards Kapugedera at deep midwicket, easy catch and that's the end of Guptill 79/3
    17.6 this was a lot fuller, Taylor goes for the same shot but gets it on the toe end of the bat, Kulasekara is waiting at the third man boundary for that one, and he gobbles it up 126/5
    16.4 Oram holes out to Kulasekara at long-off, he gave himself room and tried to launch Mendis over long-off, but gets under it too much, the ball goes very high but doesn't have enough distance on it 117/4

    18.1 full on middle and leg, the batsman shuffles across and clips it towards square leg, Mathews charges in from the boundary and picks it up just outside the circle, fires in a flat throw to Sangakkara, who takes off the bails with McGlashan just short of his crease, Sangakkara collected that one in front of the stumps instead of waiting behind 127/6
    19.2 Malinga's yorker does the trick, fast and heading for the base of middle stump, better batsmen than Mills have had no answer to that one 136/7
    19.3 Malinga's on a hat-trick, yet again the middle stump is rocked back, Vettori was backing away an looking to cut, he misses and that's the end of Vettori, slightly shorter from Malinga this time, but good enough 136/8

    7.6 that's the wicket that New Zealand needed, Dilshan reaches out for a full ball outside off, ends up chipping the ball to Ryder at backward point, a great, low diving catch from Ryder 75/4
    1.5 Mills gets the breakthrough, Jayasuriya was looking to play that short-arm pull of his, but gets a top edge towards Shane Bond at short fine leg 22/1
    4.1 full and outside off, Dilshan squeezes it towards backward point, a great diving stop from Ryder, he follows that up with a direct hit to the striker's end, and that's the end of Jayawardene. Superb fielding from Ryder 43/2
    6.5 Sangakkara is undone by Vettori, the batsman chips it off the backfoot straight to McCullum at short midwicket, New Zealand are still in it 67/3
    14.6 last ball of Vettori's spell and he strikes, Rupasinghe is trapped lbw, itching on off, Rupasinghe wanted to turn it to leg, misses and is struck in front of off, no doubt about that one 109/6
    9.6 Butler has struck, that was a pathetic shot from Kapugedera, a swipe across the line, he misses and the ball crashes into off and middle 85/5
    16.6 Oram gets rid of Mathews, who chips an innocuous delivery back to the bowler, huge wicket that, Mathews, Sri Lanka's last remaining recognised batsman, has just perished to a full toss 122/7
    19.2 Oram's on a hat-trick now, Kulaskeara holes out to long-on, another low full toss, Kulasekara's shot finds Broom, who has an easier catch than McCullum last ball 133/9
    19.1 a great jumping catch from McCullum at long-off silences the crowd, a low full toss from Oram, Bandara lofts it straight at long-on, that's another dot ball, McCullum amde plenty of ground to his right before taking that one 133/8
