  • Overs 101-150

Martin to Paranavitana, OUT, and there it is! Much better delivery that, pitched up to lure Paranavitana forward and then just gently swings away from the left-hander who pushes at it and gets a nick to McCullum and goes for a duck

NT Paranavitana c †McCullum b Martin 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 0/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   CS Martin 0.3-0-0-1

Martin to Sangakkara, OUT, good grief, Sangakkara's chipped a gift on the pads straight into midwicket's lap! Not a good ball at all, a half-volley on the legs but Sangakkara clips it very hard and picks out Flynn, who has little time to react and does well to gobble that up in his midriff

KC Sangakkara c Flynn b Martin 8 (12m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Sri Lanka 16/2   TM Dilshan 8* (6b 1x4)   CS Martin 2-1-8-2

O'Brien to Dilshan, OUT, and he's chopped it onto his stumps! Not a good ball and not a good shot, its short and a bit wide outside off stump but Dilshan flashes a leaden-footed cut and succeeds only in dragging the ball onto the base of off stump, what agony for him after a splendid innings

TM Dilshan b O'Brien 92 (108m 72b 12x4 1x6) SR: 127.77

Sri Lanka 134/3   DPMD Jayawardene 34* (79b 5x4)   IE O'Brien 6.1-0-55-1

O'Brien to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, and this time he's gone! Another short ball from O'Brien forces Jayawardene into a loose shot, he goes back cut but plays it feebly and the extra bounce proves fatal as he edges it flush to Taylor at first slip

DPMD Jayawardene c Taylor b O'Brien 114 (297m 227b 15x4 0x6) SR: 50.22

Sri Lanka 300/4   TT Samaraweera 82* (169b 11x4)   IE O'Brien 15-1-94-2

Vettori to Mathews, OUT, edged and gone! Vettori pushes through a short, faster arm ball that forces Mathews onto the back foot and flashing hard, resulting in a faint tickle as he goes hard and McCullum gobbles it up

AD Mathews c †McCullum b Vettori 39 (89m 60b 4x4 1x6) SR: 65.00

Sri Lanka 386/5   TT Samaraweera 126* (244b 19x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 30.1-8-55-1

Vettori to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, and he's taken another! Quicker ball from Vettori drifts onto the pads and Prasana turns it from way in front of his front leg and straight to Flynn at short leg

HAPW Jayawardene c Flynn b Vettori 7 (16m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Sri Lanka 408/6   TT Samaraweera 141* (256b 21x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 32.4-8-61-2

Vettori to Samaraweera, OUT, dances down the track to Vettori, making room to go inside out over extra cover, but he plays it straighter and picks out Patel running in and taking the catch low

TT Samaraweera c Patel b Vettori 159 (346m 277b 24x4 1x6) SR: 57.40

Sri Lanka 444/7   KMDN Kulasekara 18* (33b 2x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 36.4-8-78-3

Martin to Kulasekara, OUT, simple dismissal, just hits a good length and straightens it and Kulasekara is neither here nor there, pushing inside the line and the thin outer edge is taken

KMDN Kulasekara c †McCullum b Martin 18 (39m 34b 2x4 1x6) SR: 52.94

Sri Lanka 444/8   T Thushara 0* (2b)   CS Martin 22.1-5-69-3

Martin to Muralitharan, OUT, smart catch! The fun ends for Murali, it was brief and not too painful, he flays the bat at a short ball that rises up and McCullum leaps up and does really well to hold onto the thick edge that was traveling high to his right

M Muralitharan c †McCullum b Martin 8 (3m 5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

Sri Lanka 452/9   T Thushara 0* (2b)   CS Martin 23-5-77-4

Vettori to Thushara, OUT, thats a simple catch for O'Brien at mid-off as Vettori tosses it up invitingly into the rough, gets some turn and bounce, and Thushara miscues an aerial drive, he was looking to go hard but the bite off the track drew a false shot high in the air

T Thushara c O'Brien b Vettori 0 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 452/10   BAW Mendis 0* (0b)   DL Vettori 37.4-9-78-4
