4 September 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Bond to Dilshan, OUT, Dilshan has holed out to deep square leg, great start from Bond, Dilshan comes down the track and swings it, not enough on that shot, and Guptill has an easy catch near the boundary

Sri Lanka 2/1   ST Jayasuriya 1* (2b)   SE Bond 0.5-0-2-1

Mills to Udawatte, OUT, New Zealand have two, Udawatte is gone, another batsman who is done in because the ball stopped on him, it was a back of a length ball outside off, Udawatte was halfway through the stroke before he checks his shot, the ball pops up towards point for a simple catch

ML Udawatte c Broom b Mills 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 2/2   ST Jayasuriya 1* (3b)   KD Mills 0.1-0-0-1

Mills to Jayasuriya, OUT, Jayasuriya is gone, Sri Lanka's chances are fading fast here, the crowd has lost its voice, he goes for the short-arm jab this time, gets it high on his bat and the ball lobs up to Taylor at midwicket for a simple catch

ST Jayasuriya c Taylor b Mills 7 (16m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sri Lanka 11/3   DPMD Jayawardene 3* (8b)   KD Mills 1.2-0-2-2

NL McCullum to Jayawardene, OUT, a well-judged catch from Ryder ends the Jayawardene show, a top edge swirled towards short fine leg, Ryder has to make some ground before he jumps to take an overhead catch with his back facing the wicket

DPMD Jayawardene c Ryder b NL McCullum 41 (43m 30b 5x4 1x6) SR: 136.66

Sri Lanka 78/4   KC Sangakkara 25* (21b 3x4)   NL McCullum 0.3-0-2-1

NL McCullum to Mathews, OUT, Nathan McCullum gets two in an over, could this be curtains for Sri Lanka? Mathews tries to whip it to midwicket, only to find Taylor waiting there

AD Mathews c Taylor b NL McCullum 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 80/5   KC Sangakkara 26* (22b 3x4)   NL McCullum 1-0-4-2

Bond to Rupasinghe, OUT, low full toss does the trick for Bond, Rupasinghe gets it very low on his bat and can only lob it towards cover, Vettori completes a simple catch

RJMGM Rupasinghe c Vettori b Bond 18 (26m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 129/6   KC Sangakkara 56* (43b 5x4)   SE Bond 2.3-0-11-2

Oram to Sangakkara, OUT, a great innings from Sangakkara comes to an end, he top-edges a pull back to the bowler, a killer blow from Oram, not to forget that's a dot ball as well, the crowd starts to head for the exit

KC Sangakkara c & b Oram 69 (71m 50b 7x4 0x6) SR: 138.00

Sri Lanka 143/7   KMDN Kulasekara 1* (2b)   JDP Oram 3-0-27-1

Bond to Kulasekara, OUT, this time the length is slightly shorter, Kulasekara can get underneath one finally, but he hits it too high with nowhere-near enough distance, the ball swirls towards Taylor at cover

KMDN Kulasekara c Taylor b Bond 2 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 148/8   HMCM Bandara 4* (3b)   SE Bond 3.5-0-18-3
