New Zealand in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Sri Lanka v New Zealand

Sri Lanka won by 14 runs (D/L method)

6.3

Malinga to Latham, OUT, the break in play has broken Latham's concentration, lands on a good length on the off stump, hint of inward movement in the air, straightens after pitching and Latham left a big gap between bat and pad, ball shaves the off stump

TWM Latham b Malinga 2 (32m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

New Zealand 17/1   RJ Nicol 11* (21b 1x4)   SL Malinga 3.3-0-9-1

26.3

Perera to Nicol, OUT, thin edge! Perera lands it on roughly the same area of the previous two deliveries, Nicol decided to go for the drive and gets a faint edge to the keeper

RJ Nicol c †Sangakkara b Perera 46 (107m 74b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.16

New Zealand 100/2   BJ Watling 46* (67b 6x4)   NLTC Perera 2.3-0-14-1

33.3

Herath to Watling, OUT, Jayawardene takes a sharp catch! Tossed up on middle and off and Watling was down on his knee to slog, mistimed it and instead it went flat and Jayawardene was alert at short midwicket, timed his dive well and took it

BJ Watling c Jayawardene b Herath 55 (101m 86b 6x4 0x6) SR: 63.95

New Zealand 130/3   LRPL Taylor 17* (23b 2x4)   HMRKB Herath 9.3-0-28-1

45.2

Kulasekara to Taylor, OUT, sharp catch at cover! Kulasekara fired that full outside off and Taylor tried to smoke that past cover, went flat to Mathews who timed his dive well, Mathews showed no emotion after taking it but SL will be relieved they've seen the back of Taylor

LRPL Taylor c Mathews b Kulasekara 72 (89m 62b 7x4 2x6) SR: 116.12

New Zealand 221/4   JEC Franklin 27* (32b 1x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 8.2-1-40-1

48.4

Mathews to McCullum, OUT, that was in the air for a long time but Perera kept his eyes on it! Slower ball and McCullum went for the big hit and lofted it over the on side, it swirled and Perera hung on and fell backwards

NL McCullum c Perera b Mathews 16 (16m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 242/5   JEC Franklin 31* (36b 1x6)   AD Mathews 6.4-0-35-1

49.6

Malinga to Ellis, OUT, yorker to finish things off! Too good for Ellis, he was standing outside leg, Malinga took aim at the leg stump and the batsman couldn't get his bat down on time

AM Ellis b Malinga 4 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 250/6   JEC Franklin 35* (40b 1x6)   SL Malinga 10-0-39-2
