Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Marvan Atapattu, 5.1 ov), 2-193 (Sanath Jayasuriya, 34.5 ov), 3-196 (Mahela Jayawardene, 35.5 ov), 4-213 (Aravinda de Silva, 38.5 ov), 5-240 (Kumar Sangakkara, 44.2 ov), 6-256 (Russel Arnold, 47.3 ov), 7-263 (Chaminda Vaas, 48.4 ov)
5.1 to MS Atapattu, what a catch! New Zealand get the early breakthrough they desperately wanted, Atapattu wristily flicks a shortish rising ball angling into the body, in the air just a fraction behind square, but Styris dives to his right and snaps up a fine. 23/1
47.3 to RP Arnold, good length ball just outside off stump, Arnold drives down the wrong line as it straightened just enough to defeat him, drags an inside edge on to the stumps. 256/6
35.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, a mini comeback for the New Zealanders, the drinks break seems to have done wonders, good length ball, seams back in to the right-hander from off stump, taken on the pad as he shuffles across the crease, big shout for lbw and after a look, a nod ... and finally the raised finger from umpire Bucknor, a rather disappointed looking Jayawardene is on his way, probably thinking it was heading down the leg side, but he didn't help himself by coming across his stumps as he attempted to play it, it struck him in line with middle and leg, probably taking leg stump as he was struck creasebound. 196/3
48.4 to WPUJC Vaas, excellent slower ball from Adams, very, very slow, Vaas is through his attempted hoick over midwicket miles too early and the top of middle stump is knocked back. 263/7
34.5 to ST Jayasuriya, the drinks break and the bowling change for a part-timer does the trick, Astle nabs the exhausted Jayasuriya, quicker, full and straight ball, plays across it, rapped on the pads and is trapped plumb in front. 193/2
38.5 to PA de Silva, Sri Lanka just faltering a little now, de Silva picks up a fullish ball strongly, but can't quite clear Styris leaping up to take a good clean catch above his head at extra cover. 213/4
44.2 to KC Sangakkara, Sangakkara tries to unleash but is done by a quicker, very full ball, frees the arms only so much, scoops a top edge straight up to Adams at extra cover on the circle edge, Astle nabs his third. 240/5

TOTAL45.3 Ov (RR: 4.94, 186 Mins)225
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Nathan Astle, 0.6 ov), 2-2 (Stephen Fleming, 1.5 ov), 3-15 (Craig McMillan, 5.3 ov), 4-93 (Chris Cairns, 22.4 ov), 5-94 (Lou Vincent, 23.2 ov), 6-150 (Chris Harris, 34.4 ov), 7-179 (Jacob Oram, 40.4 ov), 8-182 (Andre Adams, 41.4 ov), 9-200 (Daryl Tuffey, 43.3 ov), 10-225 (Scott Styris, 45.3 ov)
1.5 to SP Fleming, the disastrous start continues for New Zealand, lovely shortish ball slanting across the left-hander just outside off stump, gets a little edge straight through to the keeper and Sri Lanka are absolutely ecstatic. 2/2
5.3 to CD McMillan, and another one bites the dust! good length ball going straight on outside off stump, McMillan pushes at it well away from his body, his feet like concrete anchors at the crease, a regulation edge straight through to the keeper. 15/3
34.4 to CZ Harris, Harris is outfoxed, flighted up from around the wicket, slides straight on through the gate, taking the top of off stump, Harris wanted to cut but it just wasn't there for it, completely deceived. 150/6
40.4 to JDP Oram, Oram is well beaten by a lovely flighted ball outside off stump, advances down the wicket but ends up groping for it in defence, turns away through to the keeper and he's stranded well outside his crease as Sangakkara whips off the bails. 179/7
23.2 to L Vincent, two quick wickets set New Zealand right back on the back foot again, loose short ball sits up outside off stump, begging to be hit, Vincent slashes hard but slices it straight to Muralitharan at backward point. 94/5
22.4 to CL Cairns, de Silva makes the key breakthrough to end a promising rebuilding partnership, flighted up outside off stump and turning in, Cairns looks to drive but it's not quite there for it, checks the stroke and plays it tamely straight back to the. 93/4
41.4 to AR Adams, another one bites the dust, drags it down much shorter, sits up to be hit, Adams swings powerfully across it in true calypso style, but doesn't quite get enough loft on it, swinging it straight down sub fielder Jehan Mubarak's throat at deep midwicket as New Zealand slump further towards a rather comprehensive defeat. 182/8
43.3 to DR Tuffey, one to go, well flighted outside off stump, held it right back, Tuffey reaches forward at it, gets a faint edge through to Sangakarra who juggles it, breaking the stumps as he grabs it on the second go. 200/9
45.3 to SB Styris, but it's one too many this time around, shorter ball, pulls it hard and high, but lofts it straight down to Vaas running in from deep backward square leg, completing a comfortable catch. 225/10
