    16.1 superb catch in the deep from Guptill. The slower ball was in the slot for Mendis, he picked it up and lofted it high on leg, but Guptill judged it very well to stay inside the deep midwicket boundary and even dive backwards to grab it with both hands 131/3
    4.3 full toss outside off and would you believe it, he's it hit it straight down mid-off's throat. Went deep in his crease but got it off the bottom of the bat, couldn't quite get the elevation and he picks out CDG 41/1
    9.1 this was on the cards and Santner, after toying with Fernando last over, gets his man! He gave his intention away early as he danced down the wicket, Santner cleverly shortened his length and fired it outside off, Fernando missed and the keeper did the rest 68/2
    19.3 direct hit from Seifert sends Dickwella back. It was right in the block hole and the ball sneaked through the gap between Shanaka and the stumps. They went for the single and Seifert got the stumps 159/4

    3.2 full around off, it was nicely tossed up, Guptill picked the right ball for the slog sweep but top edged it as it bounced a little extra, it nearly popped out of the hands of the fielder in the deep but he held on on the second attempt 18/2
    0.4 vintage Malinga and the stumps knocked out! He pushed those fielders back on the leg side and let the old yorker rip, swinging back in from around off, and crashes into middle 1/1
    7.2 wicket second ball for the debutant! Not the best delivery he'll bowl, it was short outside off, but he probably meant to push it wide with Seifert looking for the sweep first ball, went for the cut this time but only managed an edge to the keeper. The mounting required rate was always going to bring the spinner into play 39/3
    13.3 right through him, bowled with a yorker! Malinga has done it, the breakthrough ends this rapid stand. De Grandhomme was looking to work the ball to leg but it dipped, swung late and hit the base of middle and leg stumps 118/4
