    0.3 gets the inside edge onto the wicket, as he was looking for the cut through the off side 0/1
    3.4 caught at thirdman, uses his feet and mishits it high in the air to the right of thirdman, where Franklin runs, slides and takes a very good catch 26/3
    2.5 Captain goes, it was fuller outside the off stump, looking to drive through the off side, mishits it straight to Patel at cover, could not get it in the air over the fielder 24/2
    8.2 thats out! A good moving delivery slants past the left-hander, and Sangakkara drives loosely, getting a thin edge through to McGlashan, and Sri Lanka are now 55 for 5! 51/5
    6.6 gone! Short of a length delivery on the stumps, Atapattu goes on the backfoot and pulls it away, but can only find the man out in the deep! 44/4
    10.3 run out! A fullish ball on middle and leg is tucked past square leg, the batsmen take one and decide on the second, but Fulton in the deep is quick and fires in the throw to McGlashan, and Silva is just too slow coming back, there really was no second run on offer, and indecision is the culprit 58/6
    14.1 gone! Shortish delivery outside off stump, Silva decides to go for the pull, doesnt time it well, and ends up with a bottom-edge straight to the 'keeper 71/8
    11.4 good catch! Banged in short and wide outside off stump, the width was there to go after the stroke, but all Bandara can do is hop up and cut that in the air to point, where Taylor times his jump to perfection and holds a good catch above his head 61/7

    18.2 thats that! Tossed up on middle and leg, Malinga looks to slam that over the off side, misses, and the ball hits the top of leg stump! 115/10
    17.6 all over! Full toss on the stumps, Fernando heaves it on the leg side, it goes high over the infield, but lands smack in Adams's hands at the deep mid-wicket boundary 115/9

    8.6 another run out! Madness! Tossed up on middle and leg, Astle turns it to the onside, McCullum sets off down the track but Astle says no and New Zealand have anothe run-out mess on their hands 57/3
    5.5 gone! A good length delivery outside off stump and Fleming goes for an expansive drive, was a bit late on the shot, and ends up skies skying it over point and Kapugedera takes a well-judged catch out in the deep 51/1
    8.2 run out! Tossed up on middle and leg, Taylor comes down and and flicks it away, looks for a second, McCullum is not interested, Taylor keeps running and is out by a mile, sad end for him, Sri Lanka strike again! 56/2

    12.6 gone! Full and swinging into him, Fulton doesnt pick it well and has an ugly swipe across the line, eyes not on the ball at all, and his stumps are re-arranged, Sri Lanka strike again! 82/4
    14.4 another one bites the dust! Simple catch! Banged in short outside off stump, McGlashan is taken by suprise and defends loosely on the hop, the ball takes the shoulder of the bat and loops up in the air, and all point has to do is take a few steps forward and accept the easiest of chances 86/5
