  • Overs 51-100

Eranga to Guptill, OUT, 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

MJ Guptill c Mathews b Eranga 11 (21m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.75

New Zealand 29/1   BB McCullum 17* (15b 3x4)   RMS Eranga 2.1-0-10-1

Eranga to Williamson, OUT, 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

KS Williamson c Paranavitana b Eranga 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 29/2   BB McCullum 17* (15b 3x4)   RMS Eranga 2.3-0-10-2

Kulasekara to Taylor, OUT, 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

LRPL Taylor b Kulasekara 9 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

New Zealand 40/3   BB McCullum 19* (24b 3x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 4.2-1-21-1

Herath to McCullum, OUT, 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

BB McCullum b Herath 68 (167m 125b 8x4 2x6) SR: 54.40

New Zealand 130/4   DR Flynn 41* (97b 7x4)   HMRKB Herath 12.2-2-27-1

Herath to Franklin, OUT, 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

JEC Franklin lbw b Herath 3 (51m 43b 0x4 0x6) SR: 6.97

New Zealand 142/5   DR Flynn 49* (133b 7x4)   HMRKB Herath 16.2-2-32-2

Herath to Flynn, OUT, 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

DR Flynn c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 53 (201m 152b 7x4 0x6) SR: 34.86

New Zealand 155/6   CFK van Wyk 9* (18b 2x4)   HMRKB Herath 19.3-3-40-3

Herath to Bracewell, OUT, 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

DAJ Bracewell c DPMD Jayawardene b Herath 12 (25m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

New Zealand 181/7   CFK van Wyk 23* (40b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 23.2-4-51-4

Herath to van Wyk, OUT, 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

CFK van Wyk b Herath 28 (61m 49b 3x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

New Zealand 196/8   TG Southee 10* (17b 1x4)   HMRKB Herath 25.4-5-58-5

Eranga to Southee, OUT, 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

TG Southee c Mathews b Eranga 16 (45m 37b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.24

New Zealand 207/9   JS Patel 5* (16b)   RMS Eranga 14.4-4-42-3

Kulasekara to Boult, OUT, 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

TA Boult b Kulasekara 7 (17m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

New Zealand 221/10   JS Patel 12* (32b)   KMDN Kulasekara 12.5-5-31-2
