    7.4 castled! Hasini's skittish footwork does for her in the end, exposing her stumps as she tried to swing to leg, and pretty much yorked by a full one. Kerr strikes with her fourth ball, a googly on leg stump (which would have been a tasty full toss if Hasini had come forward to it) 60/1
    11.5 dug out back to the bowler, Tahuhu appeals for caught and bowled... The umpires are going to have to check this, not sure what the soft signal was but the replays should soon help us out. Full on leg stump, Atapattu chopped down on it, and that looks like she has scooped the ball straight up! Frustration evident, SL's captain thumps the ground with her bat, but she has to go. Huge breakthrough for NZ! 87/2
    14.1 goes for the big hit, but chipped to mid-off! Pressure tells, and Sanjeewani departs trying to slap over the top, hit high up the bat and Bates circles around to take a simple catch. Jensen among the wickets now 99/3

    14.5 fullish, clipped in the air, and plucked at midwicket! Safe grab from Devine, pulling down a sharp chance above her head, and Jensen has two in the over! Siriwardene not troubling the scorers today, SL four down 100/4
    16.6 slower ball, top-edged towards point... and taken! Completely done by the lack of pace, big leading edge and it swirled into the off side, Kerr settling safely underneath it 114/5
    17.1 holes out to deep midwicket! Gone first ball, Kerr strikes again! Couldn't get any power on it, hitting against the legspin and she sent a straightforward catch to Jensen 114/6
    19.3 cross-seamer, skids on and hits the splice, lobs a gentle catch into the covers! Third wicket for Jensen as New Zealand continue to finish well under the WACA lights 123/7

    4.2 now, is this a run-out...? Yes, Priest just keeps walking! Direct hit, after the ball ricocheted towards backward point. Devine called it but Priest never got going as Madavi threw to the non-striker's end! Don't think a dive would have saved her, either 18/1
    10.5 got her, chipped to cover! Dilhari makes the breakthrough in her first over, and this is already getting tight for New Zealand! Bates was looking to put the pressure on the bowler, didn't quite get to the pitch, and skewed a drive to the fielder on the edge of the ring (who holds on this time). Game on! 58/2
    16.5 bowled 'er! Atapattu rolls out a finger-wagging celebration as Green swings across the line and misses a straight one... But is that too little too late for Sri Lanka? 119/3
