Mills to Dilshan, no run, starts off with a length ball on middle and leg, flicked towards midwicket by Dilshan, straight to the fielder


Mills to Dilshan, no run, played


Mills to Dilshan, no run, sliding towards the leg side, Dilshan can't capitalise, failing to get any bat on that


Mills to Dilshan, 1 run, pushed firmly towards mid-on by Dilshan for a single


Mills to Silva, no run, good start from Mills, this one is on middle, patted back towards the bowler


Mills to Silva, FOUR, this time he's a trifle short, and the ball just sits up for Silva, who hammers it to midwicket for a boundary


Mills to Silva, 1 wide, I seem to have jinxed Mills here, this time he sends down a wide down the leg side


Mills to Silva, no run, a bit of width for Silva, and he flashes at the ball, powerfully struck but the placement is poor, straight at the point fielder

Sri Lanka 15/1   KD Mills 1-0-6-0

Mills to Silva, 1 run, big appeal for lbw, it was probably going on to hit the stumps but there was a big inside edge there


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


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


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


Mills to Silva, OUT, leading edge from Silva, another failure for him, this was a bit shorter from Mills, on middle stump, silva was looking to get that to the leg side, the mishit flies to Jacob Oram at mid-on for another easy catch

LPC Silva c Oram b Mills 13 (14m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 130.00


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   KD Mills 2-0-14-1

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


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


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


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


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


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   KD Mills 3-0-26-1

Mills to Sangakkara, 1 run, and again the ball is kept full and wide outside off, Sangakkara just about reaches it and gets it away towards mid-off


Mills to Jayawardene, FOUR, innovative from Jayawardene, he realised New Zealand were bowling full and wide so he jumped way across his stumps, and picked up the low full toss from about a couple of foot outside off to scoop it over short fine leg


Mills to Jayawardene, FOUR, another boundary, Jayawardene stands his ground this time and squeezes the ball past point for a boundary


Mills to Jayawardene, FOUR, Jayawardene is providing the impetus Sri Lanka needs here, this time it was very short, Jayawardene walked across his stumps and helped it past short fine leg for yet another boundary


Mills to Jayawardene, 1 run, another shuffle across from Jayawardene, he tucks this full one from his pads to midwicket


Mills to Sangakkara, 1 run, length ball outside off, Sangakkara does what he has been doing for much of this innings, picking up an easy single, this time by pushing the ball to long-off

Sri Lanka 124/3   KD Mills 4-0-41-1
