13.3

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, fuller this time, but he's not interested in flighting the ball much. Sanga gets forward and taps it away through midwicket

13.4

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, excellent fielding by Devcich off his own bowling. He dove full length to his left to stop the off drive from Dilshan from beating him

13.5

15.1

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, goes wide of the crease that time as he pitches it right up to the batsman who comes forward and drives back to the bowler

15.2

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, held that one back a little and the ball goes along with the arm to. The natural variation that Warnie says Jadeja uses so well. Dilshan was coming forward to defend, but misses as the ball hits his pads, but it would have gone down leg

15.3

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, flatter and bowled just outside off. Dilshan stays leg side of it and looks to slap it away through the off side, but can't time it

15.4

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, flighted on off stump and Dilshan drives it to long-off to take a single

Sri Lanka 89/1   AP Devcich 2-0-5-0

17.3

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, tossed up outside off stump and he pushes it towards mid-on, but Devcich leaps to his right and fields well

17.5

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, on a good length, but there isnt too much room on offer as he taps it away to cover

17.6

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, nicely bowled. He gets a maiden by bowling this full and on middle. Dilshan comes forward and just keeps it out

Sri Lanka 97/1   AP Devcich 3-1-5-0
19.1

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, Sanga wants the single, but Dilshan says no. In the end there is no trouble. The ball was pushed through and he wanted to flick it past the short fine leg, but doesnt get bat on it.

19.2

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, on a good length and he goes forward and blocks well

19.3

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, stays leg side of that one as he leans into a nice-looking cover drive to the flighted ball outside off stump to bring up the Sri Lankan hundred. These two have done very, very well after that first-ball jolt

19.4

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 no ball, oh, dear. He's bowled a no-ball and its free hit time! The back portion of his foot hadn't landed but the front half was well in front of the line. as Sanga defends that good length ball on middle

19.4

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, flatter ball on middle, tucking the batsman up as he slog sweeps it straight to deep midwicket's hands. But it is a free hit so the wicket doesnt count

19.5

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, pushes it through again and Dilshan is late on it as he looks to play across the line and whip it through midwikcet

19.6

Sri Lanka 102/1   AP Devcich 4-1-8-0
21.1

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, pitched right up at the batsman's feet as Sanga drives down to long-on

21.2

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, and all this pressure makes the batsman try something differed as he goes down to sweep the ball, but it goes straight to short fine

21.3

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, flatter but still full of length as the batsman drives to long-on

21.4

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, similar delivery, similar result, but its the left hander this time. Tossed up on leg stump and driven down the ground

21.5

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, oh Devcich can't get to that. He wanted to as he made a couple of steps then gave up the ghost as the full length ball is pushed down the ground to his right

21.6

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, this time he works it away towards midwicket as the ball wasn;t quite there for the drive

Sri Lanka 108/1   AP Devcich 5-1-13-0
23.1

Devcich to Dilshan, FOUR, he needed that. Full and with a little bit of width and Dilshan slams it through the covers. Muscular shot that to end his boundary drought

23.2

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, and that makes the bowler bowl it flatter and on the pads, which is easily negotiated into the square leg region

23.3

Devcich to Sangakkara, no run, full and on middle as Sanga comes forward and pushes it back to the bowler

23.4

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, clips the full length ball on middle and leg to long-on

23.6

Devcich to Sangakkara, 1 run, effortlessly worked down to long-on as Devcich bowls it full and on middle stump

Sri Lanka 124/1   AP Devcich 6-1-20-0
25.1

Devcich to Dilshan, 2 runs, short and wide and Dilshan gets into the party. But there is a sweeper cover out there, Adam Milne, who does well as he slides to his right. Dilshan's cut was placed well, as he waited for it just enough to hit it past the point fielder

25.2

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, tossed up on middle and off and it is defended away calmly

25.3

Devcich to Dilshan, FOUR, and it was only a matter of time until his sweep shot found the middle of the bat. This was on middle and off and he lofts it away over square leg and it goes for a one-bounce four

25.4

Devcich to Dilshan, 1 run, fifty for Dilshan with a calm push down the ground, almost characteristic of the innings he has played today. Dare I say, Dilshan has dropped anchor?

25.5

Devcich to Sangakkara, no run, tossed up on middle and leg, and Sanga pushes it down the ground

25.6

Devcich to Sangakkara, OUT, oh, why would he do that when he was looking so good at the crease? chips it in the air straight to midwicket. Devcich gave the ball a little air and he came down the track, looking to clear the infield, but instead the flick shot found the fielder dead on. Wicket against the run of play for New Zealand but can they capitalise? Sanga looks absolutely bemused. I dont think even he understands how he could have perished like this

KC Sangakkara c McCullum b Devcich 79 (110m 81b 9x4 2x6) SR: 97.53

Sri Lanka 137/2   AP Devcich 7-1-27-1
27.1

Devcich to Jayawardene, no run, loud shout for leg before, Devcich is on his knees with such a prolonged appeal but the batsman is struck outside the line of off stump while playing a shot, the sweep.

27.2

Devcich to Jayawardene, no run, nicely pitched up and he defends back to the bowler

27.3

Devcich to Jayawardene, OUT, oh, he's thrown it away! They're just checking for the no ball and it looks to be fine, the back part of the boot is behind the line. It was flighted on middle and off and Mahela made a foray down the track and lofted the ball straight up. He would have wanted to add a little more distance to it as long-off ran up and took an easy catch.

DPMD Jayawardene c Nicol b Devcich 1 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

27.4

31.1

Devcich to Mathews, 1 run, tossed up on middle and off and he is driven off the front foot into the covers

31.2

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, another full length ball that is nicely flighted and Dilshan who was looking to go a little too hard on it with a cut shot, gets a little under edge

31.3

Devcich to Dilshan, 2 runs, oh, poor work there from Nathan McCullum at short cover. He should have got down a lot sooner, but was just too lazy. Dilshan's push through the covers off the back foot gets two when it should have been none

31.4

Devcich to Dilshan, no run, on a good length and he goes back to push it back to the bowler

31.5
