TOTAL48.5 Ov (RR: 4.44, 222 Mins)217
Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Brendon McCullum, 7.1 ov), 2-69 (Jesse Ryder, 18.3 ov), 3-84 (Martin Guptill, 21.3 ov), 4-161 (Ross Taylor, 39.1 ov), 5-192 (Kane Williamson, 43.3 ov), 6-204 (Nathan McCullum, 45.1 ov), 7-213 (Scott Styris, 46.6 ov), 8-215 (Jacob Oram, 47.4 ov), 9-217 (Tim Southee, 48.3 ov), 10-217 (Andy McKay, 48.5 ov)
21.3 to MJ Guptill, unplayable! A searing inswinging yorker bursts through Guptill and makes a mess of the stumps. He may well have been expecting that after watching the first two deliveries, but it didn't appear to make much difference. He was in too, but that was just too good. The slinger strikes!. 84/3
43.3 to KS Williamson, Malinga works the magic again! Full, swinging in and struck bang in front! The sort of lbw you would walk from. Absolutely plumb. Very good little innings that and now the power hitters can come in.. 192/5
45.1 to NL McCullum, Malinga is such a demon at the end of an innings. Brilliant variations! McCullum stepped down looking to heave to leg, slight slower ball meant he was through the shot too early and found a faint top edge. 204/6
7.1 to BB McCullum, gone now! The heave-ho sweep which worked so well last over is missed as Herath slips in quicker ball under the bat. Clips off stump and Herath punches the air!. 32/1
39.1 to LRPL Taylor, Taylor's struggle ends. You felt something was coming. In the end it's a poor delivery, dragged short that Taylor pulled straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Normally you'd back Taylor to clear that boundary but he's not quite found his range today. 161/4
48.3 to TG Southee, Southee gone now, things sliding away in a hurry. Spun away again and Southee was very tentative, prodding at the ball, faint outside edge and Sangakkara does the rest. 217/9
48.5 to AJ McKay, all over in a heap for New Zealand. Innings end with a four for four collapse as McKay prods hopelessly and misses. Murali waves his cap to the crowds as he leads Sri Lanka off, they'll hope not to see him later!. 217/10
18.3 to JD Ryder, gone this time! Ryder was lining up a similar shot, looking to power it away through the off side. A touch of extra bounce on the delivery, it fairly took off outside off, and a thin edge nestles safely in Sangakkara's gloves. Sri Lanka are ecstatic, they've got this match by the scruff of the neck now. 69/2
46.6 to SB Styris, on his last delivery in Sri Lanka Murali strikes! Key wicket as well! Styris gets deep into his crease to work to leg, missed it and was trapped in front. Styris reviews but it's clipping leg stump. What a wonderful, who-writes-your-scripts? exit from his home stage! Massive cheer from the crowd as the decision is finally confirmed!. 213/7
47.4 to JDP Oram, gone this time! Oram had to try something, ended up heaving high towards long-on who jogged in a few yards off the rope, steadied himself and held the chance. New Zealand's chances of posting something competitive are sliding away. 215/8

TOTAL47.5 Ov (RR: 4.59, 223 Mins)220/5
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Upul Tharanga, 7.2 ov), 2-160 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 32.4 ov), 3-161 (Mahela Jayawardene, 33.1 ov), 4-169 (Kumar Sangakkara, 36.2 ov), 5-185 (Chamara Silva, 42.2 ov)
7.2 to WU Tharanga, Ryder take a bow! Even fat men can fly says George Binoy! This Kiwi sure can fly. Was that Jesse Ryder or Jesse Owens? Here's what happened - it was a short ball outside off, enough width and room for Tharanga in his current form to flay at. Enough room for him to try and go aerial. Ryder was lurking at point. He moved quickly to his left, took off with as much grace as he is capable of and landed with a resounding thud. In the meantime, he caught the ball. And then he stood up with arms aloft, menacing beard and frown in place, like a WWE superstar. What a moment!. 40/1
32.4 to TM Dilshan, finally New Zealand break through! Dilshan was looking to end this in a hurry, slashing at a length delivery to give Ryder an easy catch. It's probably come too late for his team, but that'll give some consolation at least. 160/2
42.2 to LPC Silva, bowled him, the crowd silenced once more, Silva is cleaned up by Southee, these New Zealand chaps never know when they are beaten, it was a short of length ball well outside off, Silva chased after it, his attempted cut ends in a bottom-edge that drags the ball back on to the leg stump, New Zealand can't stop grinning, they are enjoying themselves out there. 185/5
33.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, well, well. Stunned silence in the crowds as Jayawardene is given out lbw. He popped forward to a straight delivery, played around a straight ball and was struck in front. Decent stride and a review but the ball is hitting!. 161/3
36.2 to KC Sangakkara, massive wicket this, Sangakkara holes out to third man, the party comes to a halt in Colombo, it was a short ball just outside off, Sangakkara uppercuts it, but he can only find third man, anyone else thinking of the SA-NZ quarter-final?. 169/4
