New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI: Sri Lanka v New Zealand at Pallekele, Nov 6, 2012
Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets (with 11 balls remaining) (D/L method)
6 November 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Malinga to Nicol, OUT, that's gone low into Jayawardene's hands at second slip, so Nicol got beaten at least ten times on Sunday and made 46, today he edges one early and is gone, fullish length on off, brings him forward, enough away movement to take the edge off the push and fly low to Mahela, they check for the no-ball and the catch, clean on both counts

RJ Nicol c Jayawardene b Malinga 7 (12m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

New Zealand 9/1   BJ Watling 1* (1b)   SL Malinga 1.5-0-3-1

Mathews to BB McCullum, OUT, Mathews gets one next ball, McCullum got too far across looking to work a length ball square to leg, was hit on the edge of the pad, in front of leg stump, and on first glance, looks like the angle could have taken it down leg

BB McCullum lbw b Mathews 13 (33m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 52.00

New Zealand 31/2   BJ Watling 9* (22b 1x4)   AD Mathews 1.3-0-2-1

Mendis to Taylor, OUT, brilliant stuff from Jeevan, he's raced towards short midwicket, where Taylor had nudged the tossed up delivery, and hit the non-striker's stumps direct, Taylor has not even bothered to wait for the third umpire, he knew he was short

LRPL Taylor run out 7 (17m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

New Zealand 43/3   BJ Watling 13* (31b 1x4)   BMAJ Mendis 0.4-0-2-0

Mendis to Oram, OUT, that looked dead straight, Oram tried a reverse sweep to a length delivery, it was the googly, Oram missed and was caught right in front, umpire Dharmasena sends him back, replays show the ball pitched just outside leg stump

JDP Oram lbw b Mendis 2 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 49/4   BJ Watling 16* (38b 1x4)   BMAJ Mendis 1.3-0-4-1

Kulasekara to Franklin, OUT, one shot too many for Franklin, charges out, misses the length delivery, which crashes into top of leg

JEC Franklin b Kulasekara 26 (34m 25b 2x4 1x6) SR: 104.00

New Zealand 105/5   BJ Watling 43* (64b 4x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 5-1-17-1

Mendis to Williamson, OUT, KW is gone, skipped out to go down the ground, only went as far as mid on, ball hit the inner part of the bat

KS Williamson c Mathews b Mendis 5 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

New Zealand 117/6   BJ Watling 50* (70b 4x4)   BMAJ Mendis 4-0-18-2
