  • Malinga strikes amid fading light

    Having bowled out Sri Lanka for 498, New Zealand closed on 64 for 2 after 30 overs, with a lead off 123

  • Atapattu and Jayawardene prosper

    Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardene struck hundreds to pull Sri Lanka out of a difficult position and into one from where they could get close to New Zealand's tall score

  • Atapattu and Jayawardene prosper

    Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardene struck hundreds to pull Sri Lanka out of a difficult position and into one from where they could get close to New Zealand's tall score

  • Astle and McCullum wrest control

    Nathan Astle scored his tenth Test century and Brendon McCullum came agonizingly close to scoring his second as New Zealand piled on the runs during the second afternoon
