    0.5 Dilshan has holed out to deep square leg, great start from Bond, Dilshan comes down the track and swings it, not enough on that shot, and Guptill has an easy catch near the boundary 2/1
    3.2 Jayasuriya is gone, Sri Lanka's chances are fading fast here, the crowd has lost its voice, he goes for the short-arm jab this time, gets it high on his bat and the ball lobs up to Taylor at midwicket for a simple catch 11/3
    1.1 New Zealand have two, Udawatte is gone, another batsman who is done in because the ball stopped on him, it was a back of a length ball outside off, Udawatte was halfway through the stroke before he checks his shot, the ball pops up towards point for a simple catch 2/2
    10.3 a well-judged catch from Ryder ends the Jayawardene show, a top edge swirled towards short fine leg, Ryder has to make some ground before he jumps to take an overhead catch with his back facing the wicket 78/4
    18.6 a great innings from Sangakkara comes to an end, he top-edges a pull back to the bowler, a killer blow from Oram, not to forget that's a dot ball as well, the crowd starts to head for the exit 143/7
    10.6 Nathan McCullum gets two in an over, could this be curtains for Sri Lanka? Mathews tries to whip it to midwicket, only to find Taylor waiting there 80/5
    17.3 low full toss does the trick for Bond, Rupasinghe gets it very low on his bat and can only lob it towards cover, Vettori completes a simple catch 129/6
    19.5 this time the length is slightly shorter, Kulasekara can get underneath one finally, but he hits it too high with nowhere-near enough distance, the ball swirls towards Taylor at cover 148/8
