    18.1 slower ball and he holed out, he had picked it but couldn't quite clear the fielder, pulled away but straight into the palms of Nathan McCullum at deep midwicket who took a well-judged catch 124/4

    5.4 Dilshan, struggling to pierce the field all this while, gets one targeting the stumps, it's pitched on a length and he tries to heave it over midwicket while his eyes were set on the off side, misses and it crashes into the stumps, his misery ends 35/1
    8.2 bowled'im! The pressure got to him there, too many dot balls, that was bowled short on middle, no movement, straight delivery and he tried to pull it through square leg, missed and the stumps took a beating 44/2
    15.4 Ross Taylor takes a beauty at long-on! Didn't quite get to the pitch but gave it a thwack, it appeared as though it would clear Taylor. He was right at the edge, timed his jump perfectly, stuck his right hand out, tapped the ball back in and took it stretching to his right, It ends an excellent stand after the dismissals of two batsmen who failed to get going 103/3
    19.4 this is a bigger ground, bowls it on a good length, charges down the ground to clear long-off but can't, lands straight into the palms of Nathan McCullum 135/5
    19.6 another one to Nathan McCullum, a length delivery outside off but a touch too wide for the batsman who's made room, reaches and lofts it straight to long-off 135/6

    0.4 McCullum's gone! That was bowled short and it appeared it came on to hiim quicker than he expected, got into position to pull but mistimed it and Malinga, standing at midwicket, ran a few paces forward, dived and held on to a good low catch 0/1
    8.3 bowled'im! Flat and quick, short on leg and spins sharply towards middle and off, Ryder makes a bit of room and tries to late-cut that behind point, it turns out quicker than he would have liked, misses and the bails are taken out 62/2
    9.5 quicker ball does the job for Jayasuriya, a 96 kmh yorker is too good for Guptill, he's too late on the shot and is bowled, Sri Lanka are clawing their way back into this, middle stump knocked out 66/3
    14.2 No lapses this time, Ross Taylor goes, he pulls out his trademark slog-sweep but doesn't connect well, gets plenty of elevation and Angelo Mathews does well to clasp a tough catch with the sun in his eyes near deep midwicket 86/4

    16.2 bowled'im! Could that be the decisive blow? Short of a good length, that held its line, Styris made room and tried to smash that over midwicket, missed and heard the death rattle 96/5
    19.4 run-out, aiming for the blockhole, driven to long-on, Vettori tries an improbable second run and Malinga this time collects well and takes off the bails, eight down 133/8
    18.1 Timber! Full and straight, Oram takes his right foot out and tries to swing it over wide long-on, misses and the stumps take a beating 116/6
    18.2 run-out, full outside off, slices it behind point, Dilshan runs to his left from deep point and returns a powerful throw back to Sangakkara who collects on the half-volley and takes off the stumps to find Hopkins well short as he tries to make it back for the second, New Zealand are sliding now 117/7
