    7.2 he's been caught at fine leg! Mahela tried to pull a ball that was a bit too full and he top edged it to Vettori, who ran forward and to his right to take the catch 80/1
    18.2 cut out to the deep fielder at cover, Southee returns well, and Dilshan is diving in coming back for the second and is short of his ground he was desperate to come back and keep the strike but a great piece of work on the cover boundary again gives New Zealand hope 161/4
    12.1 full and flicked out to deep midwicket, they refuse the second and Sangakkara is really struggling but the throw is wild and McCullum has to go a long way to take it and get back to the stumps but he gets there and Sangakkara has to go, giving New Zealand a glimpse of an opening. There was a muddle-up in considering the second and Sangakkara was sent back, terminally 119/2
    14.4 driven into the off side but arial and taken at extra cover. A good time for Taylor to get his fielding spot on, taking a sharp low chance down to his right-hand side. It was driven from about off stump, full of length, it didn't get up that far off the ground but enough to produce a chance that was well held 131/3

    18.6 slower ball on off stump and Perera swings and loses his off stump. Franklin atoning slightly, bowling a great slower ball on a good length, Perera took a huge swipe at it and lost his off stump 167/5
    19.6 slap into the off side off an inside edge, easy run out at point surely to the non-striker's end but I think Taylor dropped the ball, he did! Taylor dropped it and Sri Lanka have won!! But no!! On the replay the ball has deflected off Taylor's hand and deflected into the stumps!!! Amazing stuff so New Zealand have effected the run out and this is going to be a Super Over...so much checking to see what actually caused the bails to come off but it looks as if it was ball...here comes the third umpire...it's OUT!!! 174/6
