    36.1 Caught at deep cover. It was the slower one, fullish outside off, and he ended up chipping it to Watling in the deep. Fine knock, though. He has done his job. 162/4
    2.1 wicket! Mills has taken the swirling, curling, missile on its return to the earth! That was a length ball on Dilshan's middle and leg, he was a little early on the flick and he ended up getting the most healthy of top-edges.. that took off, it crossed the stratosphere.. it broke into free space, and then lost its momentum and decided to return to our planet.. Mills on his follow through waited.. and waited.. A few more fielders converged, but Mills was the chosen one.. and he pouched it, tumbling away on the pitch. Big wicket! 11/1
    19.6 Guptill takes a stunner at short extra cover. Absolute P E A C H. He flew. It was driven low and well to the right of him and he flew with his right hand stretched out. A you tube moment! 96/2
    26.5 Ah! So simple. So soft. It was flighted outside off stump and Mahela chipped it straight to short extra cover! 119/3

    36.4 Caught or did it bounce just before Ross Taylor took it? Taylor is claiming it. Clean catch, too. The umpires have gone upstairs. It was flicked uppishly to right of short midwicket and Taylor dives to take it. Looks Dettol clean to me. Angelo has to go. Out for a duck. 164/5
    37.5 High bouncer outside off stump and Kula top edges the pull shot to Hopkins. He tried to fetch it from outside off but was thwarted by the extra bounce. Six down. Now then .. now then..! 177/6
    38.3 Hello! Hello! What is happening out there? They took the Batting Powerplay to go for the Bonus point but have lost wickets in a heap here. Herath tries to flick the off cutter to the on side but gets a leading edge and Taylor holds on to a dolly at short cover 180/7
