2.6

Udana to BB McCullum, OUT, that's a huge wicket for Sri Lanka, Udana finishes a superb over by getting McCullum to balloon an easy catch to cover, it was wide of offstump but McCullum looked to mow it to midwicket, gets the toe end and he's a goner

BB McCullum c Mubarak b Udana 10 (11m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

New Zealand 30/1   AJ Redmond 20* (6b 3x4 1x6)   I Udana 2-0-10-1

4.5

Malinga to Redmond, OUT, Malinga strikes, is there a dull moment when this man is bowling? that was probably the worst ball of the over, full toss on legstump but Redmond was foxed by the lack of pace, 118kmh, he lob a catch to midwicket

AJ Redmond c Silva b Malinga 23 (27m 13b 3x4 1x6) SR: 176.92

New Zealand 39/2   MJ Guptill 6* (4b 1x4)   SL Malinga 0.5-0-1-1

8.1

Mendis to Taylor, OUT, Mendis strikes, he bowled that one from well behind the crease, pushed it flat and wide, Taylor had moved down the track to swipe it to midwicket, misses the ball and Sangakkara whips off the bails, Taylor's gone

LRPL Taylor st †Sangakkara b Mendis 8 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 64/3   MJ Guptill 22* (16b 3x4)   BAW Mendis 1.1-0-3-1

8.4

Mendis to Styris, OUT, Styris is gone, Mendis cleans him up, offstump is on the ground as Styris doesn't pick the quicker straighter one, he was looking for the legspin, Mendis has transformed this game, Sri Lanka will fancy their chances now

SB Styris b Mendis 2 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 66/4   MJ Guptill 22* (16b 3x4)   BAW Mendis 1.4-0-5-2

12.6

Udana to Oram, OUT, Timber! Oram goes! Deceived completely by the slower one, the pressure was building, they needed a big hit, he went for one, swinging his bat wildy, was through with the shot way too early as he failed to pick the pace and it crashed into the middle stump, sending out legstump along with it

JDP Oram b Udana 7 (16m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

New Zealand 93/5   MJ Guptill 41* (30b 4x4 1x6)   I Udana 3-0-17-2

13.4

Jayasuriya to Guptill, OUT, Probably the decisive blow! Guptill attempted the sweep but failed to keep it down, sent it straight down Angelo Mathews' throat at deep backward square leg, New Zealand are nearing the exit here

MJ Guptill c Mathews b Jayasuriya 43 (45m 34b 4x4 1x6) SR: 126.47

New Zealand 95/6   PD McGlashan 0* (0b)   ST Jayasuriya 2.4-0-27-1

14.3

Mendis to McGlashan, OUT, Mendis gets rid of McGlashan, short and wide,the ball was spinning away from him, McGlashan goes for the cut but is unable to control it, a thick top edge and the catch is taken at backward point

PD McGlashan c Mubarak b Mendis 2 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 98/7   NL McCullum 1* (2b)   BAW Mendis 2.3-0-7-3

15.1

Muralitharan to NL McCullum, OUT, New Zealand are doing a pack-of-cards impersonation here, a run-out this time, there was a big appeal for lbw which the umpire turned down, the balls rolled towards short third man, who throws the ball to the non-striker's end and gets rid of McCullum

NL McCullum run out 2 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 100/8   DL Vettori 1* (2b)   M Muralitharan 3.1-0-16-0

15.4

Muralitharan to Vettori, OUT, New Zealand are heading towards the exit, Vettori goes for the pull, gets a top edge which swirls towards deep square leg, Malinga takes a simple catch to get rid of the New Zealand captain

16.6

Malinga to Butler, 1 run, OUT, Sri Lanka are through to the semi-finals, that was a sorry end to the NZ innings, a full toss on the pads is swung away towards long-on, Mills was coming back for the second but a direct hit from Angelo Mathews catches him short

KD Mills run out 4 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 110/10   IG Butler 2* (2b)   SL Malinga 3-0-26-1
