New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka, 1st ODI: Sri Lanka v New Zealand at Hambantota, Nov 10, 2013

Mills to Karunaratne, OUT, and he's out first ball! He was stuck on the back foot and that was definitely plumb! It was a fullish length ball, with a little bit of shape inward after pitching. Karunaratne was reulctant to come forward and to make matters worse, he was playing across the line to midwicket and gets struck below the knee-roll and that was good enough for umpire Oxenford. Golden duck for the youngster

FDM Karunaratne lbw b Mills 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 0/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   KD Mills 0.1-0-0-1

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   TM Dilshan 50* (75b 6x4)   AP Devcich 7-1-27-1

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

Sri Lanka 139/3   TM Dilshan 51* (77b 6x4)   AP Devcich 7.3-1-27-2

Anderson to Dilshan, OUT, scoops it to the keeper this time. Anderson kept it short of good length, Dilshan scooped it and it went high up in the air to land right in the keeper's hands close to the stumps for an easy catch

TM Dilshan c †Ronchi b Anderson 81 (162m 114b 9x4 0x6) SR: 71.05

Sri Lanka 197/4   AD Mathews 28* (26b 4x4 1x6)   CJ Anderson 3-0-21-1

McCullum to Thirimanne, OUT, and he strikes! It was a bit slower through the air, he pitched it on length around middle and off, Thirimanne put his right leg forward to defend and the ball turned to take a leading edge after pitching and ballooned to McCullum's right for an easy catch

HDRL Thirimanne c & b McCullum 2 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 216/5   AD Mathews 43* (34b 7x4 1x6)   NL McCullum 7.2-0-30-1

McClenaghan to Chandimal, OUT, bowled'im! Angles it in from outside off, he rolled his fingers across the ball and Chandimal was deceived by the pace as he tried to slog it on the leg side and missed it completely

LD Chandimal b McClenaghan 9 (23m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Sri Lanka 240/6   AD Mathews 57* (52b 8x4 1x6)   MJ McClenaghan 5.3-0-47-1

Mills to Kulasekara, OUT, Kulasekara holes out to long-on! The pressure was building as Mills was not offering any width. He pitched it on length coming into the stumps, Kulasekara slogged and it went high in the air to be taken by Nathan McCullum well inside the boundary at long-on

KMDN Kulasekara c McCullum b Mills 12 (14m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Sri Lanka 267/7   AD Mathews 68* (61b 8x4 1x6)   KD Mills 8.3-0-44-2

Mills to Malinga, OUT, played-on! It was a slower delivery as Mille rolled his fingers over the ball, it pitched on length and might have gone down leg but Malinga made room to slog and got an edge to disturb his stumps

SL Malinga b Mills 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 268/8   AD Mathews 69* (62b 8x4 1x6)   KD Mills 8.5-0-45-3

McClenaghan to Senanayake, OUT, MM strikes back! Pitched it right in the block hole on middle, Senanayake came across towards off to paddle it fine but missed and the ball dislodged the bails easily

SMSM Senanayake b McClenaghan 14 (5m 4b 2x4 1x6) SR: 350.00

Sri Lanka 283/9   AD Mathews 70* (63b 8x4 1x6)   MJ McClenaghan 7.4-0-70-2
