    19.5 Goddim! Fullish, on the middle and leg, swung straight to Chamara at deep square-leg. Vaas is thrilled to bits. And why not. 71/3
    0.5 Fleming's disastrous run against SL continues. Lands outside off stump, on a length, Fleming leans forward and is struck just outside the line. It was hitting off but the point of impact was just outside off and he was playing a shot. But Asad Rauf raises the finger. It was pretty close. It looked as if he was hit in front of off but the replays suggested he was outside. 1/1
    2.1 Stunner from Sangakkara. Full in length, landed on the off and middle and slanted away. Taylor has a stab at it, gets a outside edge and it flies low to the right of Sangakkara who dived full-length and plucked it inches off the turf. Fab effort. Double strike from Vaas has NZ reeling. What a start for SL. 4/2

    22.2 Murali removes McMillan. Tossed-up, on the middle stump line, on a length, McMillan tries to sweep, the ball turns in and bounces, gets a top-edge and bobs away to the left of short fine-leg fielder. Sri Lanka are on top here. And this is Murali's second over. Eight more to tackle. NZ in big trouble. 77/4
    37.3 Dilshan has the revenge. Oram falls. He came down the track, Dilshan dragged back the length, Oram went through with his lofted drive, but the bottom-hand came off the handle and the ball went high up in the air towards long-on. It hung in the air for a long time and then swirled down, Maharoof went forward, then to his left, then to his right as the ball kept swirling and lunged to his left to hold on to it. Mahela is first to rush across to give Mahroof a big hug. 141/5
    38.2 McCullum goes cheaply. From round the stumps, it landed on the middle and leg stump line, turns in slightly, McCullum pushes at it, the bat comes outside the line, the ball thuds into the pad. Murali turns around and appeals. No luck. The ball bobs off the pad to left of silly-point where Arnold grabs it. They appeal for a catch and it's given. McCullum is unhappy. As he walks past Rauf, he asks him something and shakes his head at the response. Confirmation comes from the umpire that it was given LBW He was struck in front of leg and middle. 145/6
    40.5 Another fatal sweep. A flighted-delivery on the middle stump line, Vettori went for a sweep and swung it straight to deep midwicket. 155/7

    4.4 What a stunner from Bond. At third man. It was short and outside off, Tharanga gave it the full treatment. It screamed towards Bond, who was a few yards inside the rope. He back-pedals and dives backward to take the catch. 30/1
    25.3 Jayasuriya falls. McCullum can finally smile. Landed on a length, well outside off stump, Jayasuriya tries to chop it down to third man, gets a bottom-edge and McCullum does well to snap it up. Good knock from Jayasuriya; he has laid a nice platform for the other batsmen. 130/2

    30.3 short and on the stumps, Jayawardene sees it a touch late and decides to climb into the pull shot anyway, it's hit reasonably hard but not hard enough or high enough to get past the substitute fielder Hamish Marshall at midwicket. He doesn't drop those and Jaywardene kicks himself all the way back to the pavilion for giving his wicket away so softly just when Sri Lanka were coasting along. Big wicket for New Zealand this! 152/3
    37.5 Done in the flight. Vettori tossed it up, slow in the air, Silva came down the track and is made to wait a touch and he lofts it straight to long-off. Sangakkara says something to him as he walks past. Maybe he was admonishing him or may be he was asking for some special item to be ordered for dinner. I think it was something about the rash stroke. 180/4
