Nuwan Kulasekara402115.25112000
4.3 to JD Ryder, Ryder is gone, change of pace from Kulasekara, Ryder was early into his shot, spoons it high towards mid-off, where Bandara completes a well-judged catch, that ball was in the air a long time but Bandara kept his cool. 26/2
Lasith Malinga402125.25121110
19.2 to KD Mills, Malinga's yorker does the trick, fast and heading for the base of middle stump, better batsmen than Mills have had no answer to that one. 136/7
19.3 to DL Vettori, Malinga's on a hat-trick, yet again the middle stump is rocked back, Vettori was backing away an looking to cut, he misses and that's the end of Vettori, slightly shorter from Malinga this time, but good enough. 136/8
Angelo Mathews201919.5033000
17.6 to LRPL Taylor, this was a lot fuller, Taylor goes for the same shot but gets it on the toe end of the bat, Kulasekara is waiting at the third man boundary for that one, and he gobbles it up. 126/5
Ajantha Mendis402516.2592000
16.4 to JDP Oram, Oram holes out to Kulasekara at long-off, he gave himself room and tried to launch Mendis over long-off, but gets under it too much, the ball goes very high but doesn't have enough distance on it. 117/4
Malinga Bandara402516.2580110
11.2 to MJ Guptill, he's gone this time, Guptill sweeps a leg stump delivery powerfully, a bit of a top edge and it sails towards Kapugedera at deep midwicket, easy catch and that's the end of Guptill. 79/3

Shane Bond402706.75114000
Kyle Mills403619.0071200
1.5 to ST Jayasuriya, Mills gets the breakthrough, Jayasuriya was looking to play that short-arm pull of his, but gets a top edge towards Shane Bond at short fine leg. 22/1
Ian Butler402927.25104000
7.6 to TM Dilshan, that's the wicket that New Zealand needed, Dilshan reaches out for a full ball outside off, ends up chipping the ball to Ryder at backward point, a great, low diving catch from Ryder. 75/4
9.6 to CK Kapugedera, Butler has struck, that was a pathetic shot from Kapugedera, a swipe across the line, he misses and the ball crashes into off and middle. 85/5
Jacob Oram403338.2563000
16.6 to AD Mathews, Oram gets rid of Mathews, who chips an innocuous delivery back to the bowler, huge wicket that, Mathews, Sri Lanka's last remaining recognised batsman, has just perished to a full toss. 122/7
19.1 to HMCM Bandara, a great jumping catch from McCullum at long-off silences the crowd, a low full toss from Oram, Bandara lofts it straight at long-on, that's another dot ball, McCullum amde plenty of ground to his right before taking that one. 133/8
19.2 to KMDN Kulasekara, Oram's on a hat-trick now, Kulaskeara holes out to long-on, another low full toss, Kulasekara's shot finds Broom, who has an easier catch than McCullum last ball. 133/9
Daniel Vettori401122.75140000
6.5 to KC Sangakkara, Sangakkara is undone by Vettori, the batsman chips it off the backfoot straight to McCullum at short midwicket, New Zealand are still in it. 67/3
14.6 to RJMGM Rupasinghe, last ball of Vettori's spell and he strikes, Rupasinghe is trapped lbw, itching on off, Rupasinghe wanted to turn it to leg, misses and is struck in front of off, no doubt about that one. 109/6
