    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
