New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka, 5th ODI: Sri Lanka v New Zealand at Hambantota, Nov 12, 2012

Southee to Chandimal, OUT, brilliant delivery! The late swing accounting for Chandimal, bowled quick, angled in towards middle and then swung away late to beat the bat a Chandimal closed the face and knocked back off stump

LD Chandimal b Southee 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 3/1   WU Tharanga 2* (8b)   TG Southee 0.3-0-1-1

Southee to Thirimanne, OUT, Southee strikes! Tempting him with a good length ball outside off, a bit of width there and he was drawn into playing a drive, got a thin edge as it went across and Watling took a comfortable catch this time

HDRL Thirimanne c †Watling b Southee 17 (21m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 113.33

Sri Lanka 33/2   WU Tharanga 14* (20b 2x4)   TG Southee 3-1-12-2

Boult to Mathews, OUT, Three down, it seemed like a slightly belated decision from Mathews to go for the pull, not much intent in that shot, Boult dropped it short outside off and it came on to him a little quickly as well, got a top edge and Southee judged it well at fine leg

AD Mathews c Southee b Boult 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 34/3   WU Tharanga 15* (21b 2x4)   TA Boult 3.5-0-21-1

Milne to Sangakkara, OUT, Bond, the bowling coach, will like that, ooh, nipped away, landed on middle and moved away across as Sanga tried to turn the face slightly on that one, got an edge and Watling took it easily

KC Sangakkara c †Watling b Milne 5 (26m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Sri Lanka 44/4   WU Tharanga 17* (38b 2x4)   AF Milne 1.2-0-1-1

Ellis to Jayawardene, OUT, Run-out, Superb fielding by Nathan McCullum, Jayawardene tapped it wide of extra cover and called for a single, was running to the non-striker's end, McCullum picked it with his left hand, shifted the ball to his right hand, turned and threw down the stumps to find Jayawardene well short of his ground

DPMD Jayawardene run out 24 (48m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 92.30

Sri Lanka 91/5   WU Tharanga 40* (77b 5x4)   AM Ellis 1.1-0-1-0

Ellis to Mendis, OUT, Mendis will be livid, and he should be! So much width and he went after that immediately, short and wide and he tried to slash that over point, got a thick edge and was caught by Taylor at first slip, the umpires are checking for a front-foot no-ball are they? Well, Mendis is walking and Sri Lanka are now in bigger trouble

BMAJ Mendis c Taylor b Ellis 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 92/6   WU Tharanga 41* (78b 5x4)   AM Ellis 2-0-2-1

Ellis to Perera, OUT, Perera goes! Ellis had a deep square leg in place, Perera again went for the pull and went much squarer this time, Milne was waiting for that shot in the deep, moved a few paces to his right and took it well

NLTC Perera c Milne b Ellis 11 (16m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Sri Lanka 119/7   WU Tharanga 56* (91b 7x4)   AM Ellis 3.5-0-22-2

Southee to Tharanga, OUT, Southee picks up his third wicket, Tharanga goes just as the rain comes down, short of a length and he was trying to repeat that shot though trying to get it more past point, got an edge and Watling dived full length to his right and took it one-handed, good take and Sri Lanka are in danger of getting bowled out soon here

WU Tharanga c †Watling b Southee 60 (129m 94b 8x4 0x6) SR: 63.82

Sri Lanka 123/8   RMS Eranga 0* (1b)   TG Southee 5.3-2-18-3
