Sri Lanka won by 48 runs

0.1

NL McCullum to Dilshan, 2 runs, first ball is driven fluently past extra cover by Dilshan for a couple

0.2

NL McCullum to Dilshan, 1 run, pitched up on off, not as fluent from Dilshan this time as a thick outside edge has the ball streaking towards third man

0.5

NL McCullum to Dilshan, 1 run, Dilshan also gets a single by poking the ball towards point

Sri Lanka 5/1   TM Dilshan 4* (3b)

1.1

1.1

Mills to Dilshan, no run, played

1.2

Sri Lanka 10/1   TM Dilshan 5* (6b)

2.1

Oram to Dilshan, no run, a touch overpitched outside off, Dilshan pushes it towards extra cover, no run

2.2

2.3

Oram to Dilshan, 1 run, just outside off, and short of a length, Dilshan leans back and dabs the ball delicately to third man for a single

Sri Lanka 16/1   TM Dilshan 6* (9b)

3.2

Mills to Dilshan, FOUR, length allows Dilshan to get under the ball and he lofts that one over mid-on's head, mistimed but has enough to clear the fielder

3.3

Mills to Dilshan, no run, another bit of mistiming, full ball and Dilshan bunts it back to the bowler

3.4

Mills to Dilshan, 1 run, very full again, about a foot outside off, Dilshan can barely squeeze it out towards point

3.6

Mills to Dilshan, 2 runs, Dilshan isn't bothered about the wickets tumbling at the other end, nor is he bothered that he's struggling with his timing, again he doesn't quite get hold of the ball as he tries to launch it over extra cover, clears the fielder and that's an easy two for Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka 27/2   TM Dilshan 13* (13b 1x4)

5.1

Mills to Dilshan, FOUR, slightly overpitched, outside off, Dilshan swings it past mid-on for a boundary

5.2

Mills to Dilshan, no run, a bit shorter and in the corridor outside off, Dilshan again eyeing the short boundary behind mid-on again, but he doesn't connect with the ball

5.3

Mills to Dilshan, FOUR, short and wide, that's easy for Dilshan, the cut is one of his favourite shots, he get right on top of it and gets the placement perfect to send the ball sprinting to the backward point boundary

5.4

Mills to Dilshan, no run, a bit of extra bounce for Mills, startles Dilshan, a bit of an outside edge towards short third man

5.5

Mills to Dilshan, no run, Mills probes away just outside off, Dilshan attempts a roundhouse cut but again misses the ball

5.6

Mills to Dilshan, FOUR, a bit wider from Mills, and again Dilshan gets to free his arms, the powerful cut has the point fielder diving in vain

Sri Lanka 51/2   TM Dilshan 25* (19b 4x4)

6.4

NL McCullum to Dilshan, 1 run, short and down the leg side, Dilshan helps it along to deep square leg

Sri Lanka 71/2   TM Dilshan 35* (27b 4x4)

9.1

Styris to Dilshan, FOUR, that was full and wide, Dilshan gets his front foot out of the way, opens himself up and lashes it past extra cover to bring up the 50 partnership

9.2

Styris to Dilshan, 2 runs, this was much closer to off, Dilshan tickles it towards third man, and this is another misfield, so unlike New Zealand that

9.3

Styris to Dilshan, 1 run, Styris keeps it tight around off, Dilshan opens the face and pokes it towards point for a single

9.5

Styris to Dilshan, 1 run, pretty full this time, Dilshan slashes it towards point for yet another single

Sri Lanka 80/2   TM Dilshan 43* (31b 5x4)

10.1

NL McCullum to Dilshan, no run, Dilshan attempts the cut again, it bounces more than he think and the ball goes through to the keeper

Sri Lanka 85/2   TM Dilshan 47* (35b 5x4)

11.1

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, no risks in that shot as he pushes a full ball towards cover for another single, Sri Lanka are keeping the score ticking without too much fuss here

11.3

Vettori to Dilshan, OUT, big wicket for New Zealand, tossed up on offstump, cramps Dilshan, who tries to go inside-out as he has so often in this innings, hits it straight to Brendon McCullum at short extra cover

Sri Lanka 87/3   TM Dilshan 48 (37b 5x4)
