Nuwan Kulasekara403328.2595020
17.2 to LRPL Taylor, bowled him with the slower ball! Taylor had finished swinging across the line by the time the ball reached him. He was on the front foot and played much too early, Kulasekara hit leg stump. That slower ball was out of the back of the hand. 154/4
17.6 to JDP Oram, caught at long off! Oram came out of his crease, made room and hammered the length ball flat and hard towards Dilshan, who moved to his right, got his body behind the ball and caught it nicely. 159/5
Angelo Mathews201407.0052000
Lasith Malinga403017.5084010
18.5 to NL McCullum, bowled him, I think off the inside edge, on to the pad, and on to the base of leg stump. McCullum backed away towards leg to make room and swung hard, he was beaten by the yorker. 164/6
Ajantha Mendis4048112.0042310
12.2 to BB McCullum, caught at deep square leg! McCullum didn't make good contact with the slog sweep, hitting the one that spins away in the air and into Thisara's waiting hands. 99/2
Akila Dananjaya403228.0070200
7.3 to MJ Guptill, he's struck! And look at that joy on his face, he's beaming! Guptill came forward again and attacked the bowler, lofting down the ground and straight to the fielder on the long-off boundary, Thisara Perea took a straightforward catch. 57/1
15.4 to RJ Nicol, he has his second wicket! Nicol attempted to clear the deep midwicket boundary by trying to slog sweep but got a top edge, hitting the ball high in the air and not far enough. Thirimanne settled under the catch. 137/3

7.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, he's been caught at fine leg! Mahela tried to pull a ball that was a bit too full and he top edged it to Vettori, who ran forward and to his right to take the catch. 80/1
Daniel Vettori402907.2563010
James Franklin403428.5053100
14.4 to BMAJ Mendis, driven into the off side but arial and taken at extra cover. A good time for Taylor to get his fielding spot on, taking a sharp low chance down to his right-hand side. It was driven from about off stump, full of length, it didn't get up that far off the ground but enough to produce a chance that was well held. 131/3
18.6 to NLTC Perera, slower ball on off stump and Perera swings and loses his off stump. Franklin atoning slightly, bowling a great slower ball on a good length, Perera took a huge swipe at it and lost his off stump. 167/5
