    3.1 flighted on off stump and Guptill lunges forward to push to mid-on. Sets off for a single straight away but his partner is not at all interested. The bowler is wise to the mistake, rushes across to his right and cuts the ball in it's path and sends in a rocket throw and Sanga whips the bails off with a little more oomph than necessary 18/1
    15.1 skips down the track and gets a leading edge which clears the cover infield. Absolute confusion out there and Williamson has been run-out at the bowlers'. 60/8
    3.6 Herath, you beauty! Lures Baz out of his crease and his keeper does the rest! His flight was making the batsman nervous and he decided hitting out was the only option. Poor choice and Sri Lanka are right back in this. What lovely manipulation of flight from Herath! 18/2
    5.5 and a ball later Herath strikes and the umpire is convinced! This was bowled flatter and quicker, Taylor was forward to defend, didn't cover the line and the ball didn't exactly turn and went through with the angle, struck on the pads in front of middle 23/3
    5.6 timber! Neesham beaten for turn there, Herath tosses this up from round the wicket, Neesham was forward and across and left a gap between pad and bat, the ball spins and hits the leg stump 23/4
    7.3 another one bites the dust! Herath is spinning circles around New Zealand and the Sri Lanka fans have found their voice! Another ripping turner, pitching on middle and turning away to strike the back pad rather low. Ronchi was in no way convicing with a feeble flick. Would have slammed into off stump 29/5
    9.3 presents a simple catch to midwicket! Another one that holds on the pitch a little more, and the elder McCullum also succumbs to a brain fade. Moves across to off stump and clips it straight to the fielder 33/6
    13.3 goes for the reverse sweep. Nothing more than an escape shot, struck on the knee-roll and this seemed to be sneaking down leg, but the umpire doesn't think so. Concerted appeal from Sri Lanka and they've gotten away with one. This was sliding down leg, HawkEye says 51/7
    15.3 that's five for Herath! Sri Lanka go through to the semi-final! Saw the batsman racing down the track and shortened his length. Gets some turn off the deck as well, which he tries to ride. But there is a slip in place and Mahela pouches it safely. 60/10
