View dismissal MJ Guptill c Mathews b Eranga 11 21 16 2 0 68.75
5.1 this time it carries to the fielder all right! Eranga did well to pitch this up outside off and invite the drive, he drove on the up and it took the edge and Mathews took it low to his right at second slip 29/1
View dismissal BB McCullum b Herath 68 167 125 8 2 54.40
41.2 Herath responds with a peach of a delivery! Foxed the well-set McCullum, tossed up again on the off and middle stump line and the ball turned just slightly, McCullum failed to get his bat behind the line and the ball clipped the top of the off stump, it was slightly quicker than the previous ball 130/4
View dismissal KS Williamson c Paranavitana b Eranga 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
5.3 Paranavitana juggles and takes the catch! New Zealand have lost two in three balls, this was pitched shorter, in the corridor outside off, Williamson got more bounce than expected, poked at it and it went to first slip, Tharanga fumbles and takes it while falling to his left 29/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* b Kulasekara 9 14 8 1 0 112.50
8.2 timber! The off stump is down, Kula was asking for a wicket any moment with his in-dippers, Taylor wasn't ready for this one, drives away from the body and gets an inside edge and the off stump goes back a couple of yards 40/3
View dismissal DR Flynn c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 53 201 152 7 0 34.86
60.3 it was just a matter of sticking around for a minute or so but Flynn couldn't resist! Flatter delivery wide of the off stump, he set himself up to thrash that square on the off side but got a thick outside edge and very well taken by the keeper. It was quite a thick edge and it sat in his gloves 155/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin lbw b Herath 3 51 43 0 0 6.97
54.2 Franklin's stubborn stay comes to an end, Herath tosses it up from round the wicket, lands on middle and leg and holds its line, he was forward to defend, sneaks past the edge and hits the pads in line with the middle stump 142/5
View dismissal CFK van Wyk b Herath 28 61 49 3 0 57.14
72.4 Herath has yet another five-for Herath at Galle! Not the wisest choice of shot by van Wyk, it was the quicker one and landing close to the blockhole on the off stump, van Wyk wanted to sweep, missed it completely and it hit the base of the off stump 196/8
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell c DPMD Jayawardene b Herath 12 25 25 1 0 48.00
68.2 sharp catch by Jayawardene at slip, tossed up outside off, Bracewell shapes to defend with soft hands but the ball takes the outside edge and goes low to Mahela's right at first slip, Herath now has another chance at a five-for, in Galle 181/7
View dismissal TG Southee c Mathews b Eranga 16 45 37 1 0 43.24
78.4 innings coming to an end fast, good length outside off and Southee tries to slash that square on the off side, in the air and Mathews does well to time his dive forward at backward point 207/9
JS Patel not out 12 47 32 0 0 37.50
View dismissal TA Boult b Kulasekara 7 17 9 1 0 77.77
82.5 didn't take too long to strike with the new ball, Kula bowls his stock delivery - the indipper, too good for Boult, nips back in sharply after pitching and hits the top of middle stump, bowled through the gate 221/10

View dismissal NT Paranavitana b Southee 0 22 16 0 0 0.00
5.4 played on! Southee removes the openers, this was full and moving away from the left-hander, Paranavitana has to stretch out to drive square but managed a thick inside edge onto his leg stump, should have moved his feet more across 9/2
View dismissal FDM Karunaratne lbw b Southee 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
1.3 he has a duck on debut! How unfortunate is that? Southee lands it on the right spot, outside off and gets it to move back in, Karunaratne was half forward, hit on the pads and the umpire was convinced that was hitting the off stump 2/1
View dismissal S Randiv c Guptill b Southee 9 32 22 1 0 40.90
7.6 someone's taken it this time! After the reprieve in the previous ball, Randiv plays the same shot, reaches out to a pitched up away swinging delivery, thick outside edge and it goes to Guptill this time at second slip, no fumbling, McCullum must be a relieved man 18/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c McCullum b Boult 5 18 11 0 0 45.45
8.4 New Zealand have got the Big Fish! Sri Lanka are tottering here against the swinging ball, Boult held the length back a bit, angled it away from the left-hander, Sangakkara tried to defend it and got a thick outside edge to McCullum at third slip, the fielder makes up for his lapse the previous over 20/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †van Wyk b Patel 91 294 176 11 1 51.70
73.3 Jayawardene walks! That's a sharp catch by van Wyk, Patel bowled that on middle and leg, Jayawardene went across to sweep, the ball clipped the pad and then brushed the glove and lobbed up, van Wyk threw himself forward, kept his eyes on the ball and caught in one-handed 229/8
View dismissal TT Samaraweera lbw b Southee 17 38 29 3 0 58.62
15.6 Not offering a shot! If you do that more often than not you're asking for trouble, Southee brings this one back in after pitching, very similar to the appeal to Jayawardene, Samaraweera was shouldering arms, the ball came back in a lot more, the only question was the height, hit him on the top flap of the pad, might need to see another replay 50/5
View dismissal AD Mathews c †van Wyk b Franklin 79 210 154 12 1 51.29
64.3 and Franklin's got a wicket, well who would have thought! He comes round the wicket and angles it inwards, Mathews has some width to drive and gets a thin edge to the keeper, Franklin was quite amazed himself that he got the long-awaited breakthrough 206/6
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Bracewell b Patel 4 14 11 1 0 36.36
67.3 NZ strike in quick succession! Tossed up and Prasanna was across and bent down to slog him, he connected but it was a top edge that swirled and landed down Bracewell's throat at deep backward square leg 215/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c & b Patel 8 45 31 1 0 25.80
77.3 that was easy, soft dismissal, tossed up and Kulasekara stabbed at it and spooned a return catch to Patel, they don't come easier than that 242/9

  New Zealand 2nd innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill b Kulasekara 13 49 45 1 0 28.88
12.2 through the gate! Landed on a good length on middle and off and Guptill was expecting it to come back in as it usually does, however it straightened and he played down the wrong line and the ball crashed on middle and off, the stumps are upright, the bails are scattered 35/2
View dismissal BB McCullum c Kulasekara b Herath 13 17 10 1 1 130.00
3.5 quite unnecessary really! Herath drops it a bit short and McCullum goes deep at the crease again to repeat the six two balls earlier, only this time he went behind square and didn't get the distance, Kulasekara was placed there at deep square leg for the shot 18/1
View dismissal KS Williamson c †HAPW Jayawardene b Kulasekara 10 57 35 1 0 28.57
16.4 glanced down the leg side and everyone was confident! Not quite a wicket taking delivery but it's been Kula's morning so far, it swung inwards from middle was going down the leg side, Williamson tried to glance it down to fine leg but the ball shaved the bat and Prasanna J did well to follow the movement early and time his dive to his left 46/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* lbw b Herath 18 63 32 2 0 56.25
25.2 that was quite adjacent, the arm ball from round the wicket, landed on the off stump and heading towards middle, Taylor was forward and trapped, straightforward decision 60/4
View dismissal DR Flynn b Herath 20 72 60 1 0 33.33
33.2 beaten for turn! Herath will be very pleased with that, he continues round the wicket to the left-hander, lands on off, lands close to the rough, Flynn wasn't expecting it to spin back so much and the ball sneaked past the gap between pad and bat, Flynn wasn't sure whether to go forward or back 79/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin st †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 2 18 7 0 0 28.57
29.3 this will rank as one of the more unusual dismissals! Herath tossed it up from round the wicket and Franklin gave him the charge, he was caught in a tangle, the ball went between the batsman's legs and Prasanna J failed to gather the ball, the ball instead hit his chest and deflected onto the stumps, knocking a bail off before Franklin could make it back, third umpire takes a look 70/5
CFK van Wyk not out 13 52 42 1 0 30.95
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell lbw b Herath 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
33.3 Herath has ten for the match and he's on a hat-trick! This was plumb, flatter delivery from round the wicket, the faster one that goes through with the arm, Bracewell had shuffled across and was trapped on the back foot and that was hitting middle and leg stump 79/7
View dismissal TG Southee st †HAPW Jayawardene b Randiv 16 13 14 2 1 114.28
36.6 the morning session ends with another farcical dismissal! Randiv tossed it up from round the wicket, Southee was down the track and played all around it, the ball hits his pad and rolls towards the keeper, Prasanna J gathers the knocks the bails down quickly before Southee could comprehend what was going on 96/8
View dismissal JS Patel c Karunaratne b Herath 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
37.4 that's a sharp catch! Fluke catch if you could call it that, at short leg, tossed up on middle and he tried to flick that wide to the on side, straight off the bat and the ball was wedged between Karunaratne's legs at first 97/9
