    11.3 big wicket for New Zealand, tossed up on offstump, cramps Dilshan, who tries to go inside-out as he has so often in this innings, hits it straight to Brendon McCullum at short extra cover 87/3
    0.3 The move to use the spinner works, Jayasuriya's gone, length ball on middle, Jayasuriya looks to swipe across the line and gets a top edge, and the ball swirls to Ross Taylor at short fine leg for a simple catch, big blow that 3/1
    3.5 leading edge from Silva, another failure for him, this was a bit shorter from Mills, on middle stump, silva was looking to get that to the leg side, the mishit flies to Jacob Oram at mid-on for another easy catch 25/2
    17.4 Vettori breaks the partnership, wasn't a great delivery, on a length and just outside off, Sangakkara looked to get under it and swing it over midwicket, doesn't get enough on it and Scott Styris is waiting at the boundary to gobble that one up 137/4

    18.5 Butler gets his revenge, Mubarak's knock comes to an end, he was trying to paddle a full ball, seemed to have been struck on the pads, but replays suggest it didn't, big appeal from New Zealand and Simon Taufel upholds it 147/5

    2.6 that's a huge wicket for Sri Lanka, Udana finishes a superb over by getting McCullum to balloon an easy catch to cover, it was wide of offstump but McCullum looked to mow it to midwicket, gets the toe end and he's a goner 30/1
    4.5 Malinga strikes, is there a dull moment when this man is bowling? that was probably the worst ball of the over, full toss on legstump but Redmond was foxed by the lack of pace, 118kmh, he lob a catch to midwicket 39/2
    13.4 Probably the decisive blow! Guptill attempted the sweep but failed to keep it down, sent it straight down Angelo Mathews' throat at deep backward square leg, New Zealand are nearing the exit here 95/6
    8.1 Mendis strikes, he bowled that one from well behind the crease, pushed it flat and wide, Taylor had moved down the track to swipe it to midwicket, misses the ball and Sangakkara whips off the bails, Taylor's gone 64/3
    8.4 Styris is gone, Mendis cleans him up, offstump is on the ground as Styris doesn't pick the quicker straighter one, he was looking for the legspin, Mendis has transformed this game, Sri Lanka will fancy their chances now 66/4

    12.6 Timber! Oram goes! Deceived completely by the slower one, the pressure was building, they needed a big hit, he went for one, swinging his bat wildy, was through with the shot way too early as he failed to pick the pace and it crashed into the middle stump, sending out legstump along with it 93/5
    14.3 Mendis gets rid of McGlashan, short and wide,the ball was spinning away from him, McGlashan goes for the cut but is unable to control it, a thick top edge and the catch is taken at backward point 98/7
    15.1 New Zealand are doing a pack-of-cards impersonation here, a run-out this time, there was a big appeal for lbw which the umpire turned down, the balls rolled towards short third man, who throws the ball to the non-striker's end and gets rid of McCullum 100/8
    15.4 New Zealand are heading towards the exit, Vettori goes for the pull, gets a top edge which swirls towards deep square leg, Malinga takes a simple catch to get rid of the New Zealand captain 102/9
    16.6 Sri Lanka are through to the semi-finals, that was a sorry end to the NZ innings, a full toss on the pads is swung away towards long-on, Mills was coming back for the second but a direct hit from Angelo Mathews catches him short 110/10
