    0.6 gone! Not so lucky on this occasion, again a short delivery outside the off stump and this time the ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Once again Dilshan was looking to cut it away behind point and was beaten by the lack of pace. 4/1
    7.4 that's the end of that! short and wide outside the off stump, Jayasuriya goes for the cut, ball clips the top edge and flies straight to Butler at third man who nicely settles under it. Sri Lanka three down and in trouble here 22/3
    1.4 Bond too joins the party! short of a good length delivery, was bit wide outside the off stump and Jayawardene tries to run it down but is beaten by the extra bounce and ends up playing it straight to Ros Taylor at first slip. 5/2
    15.5 Butler picks up Sangakkara as he looks to put the delivery somewhere on the onside, miscues it high in the air forward of square leg, Oram runs in and takes a good catch. 38/4

    18.2 cleaned up! something had to happen - good length delivery on the stumps, McCullum makes room and swings hard but fails to make contact and the ball crashes into the stumps. New Zealand in deep trouble here at 37 for 4. 37/4
    1.2 Thushara strikes! that's the start they wanted - good length delivery and this one nipped back in sharply after pitching outside the off stump. Ryder never picked it up and was beaten comprehensively, loud appeal and up goes the finger. 2/1
    4.1 edged and gone! short of a good length delivery, pitched in the channel outside the off stump and shaping away a touch - Guptill stands tall on the back-foot and drives hard, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Sangakkara behind the stumps 5/2
    4.5 three down! Kulasekara picks up another one! good length delivery, the one that nips back in. Taylor stays back and tries to flick it away on the leg side but fails to make contact and the ball crashes into the pad. Umpire Ashoka de Silva had no hesitation whatsoever 7/3
    32.1 Elliott's long vigil comes to an end. Flat delivery on the stumps, Elliot comes down the track and yorks himself, fails to make contact and the ball crashes into the woodwork. 101/8
    18.5 another one bites the dust! good length delivery outside the off stump, shaping away a touch - Oram plays at it well away from his body and ends up with a faint edge. Sangakkara goes low and takes it cleanly. New Zealand 5 down. 41/5
    18.6 bowled'm! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, a slinger of a delivery, Nathan McCullum pushes forward to defend and is beaten for pace and the off stump is pegged back. Malinga on a hat-trick here. 41/6
    26.3 gone! slightly short and on the middle and off stump line, Vettori swings across the line and is beaten by the lack of bounce. As plumb as it gets 76/7

    36.1 all over! It's a Malinga special, full and on the stumps, Butler fails to get his bat down in time and the ball crashes into the stumps. Sri Lanka win by 97 runs 119/10
    35.3 googly - Tuffey looks to tap it away on the off side but ends up with an inside edge and the ball rolls back and is run out by Sangakkara. Tuffey failed to pick up the ball roll back and was looking for a run there 116/9
