Nuwan Kulasekara4040010.00115100
Lasith Malinga403518.7572111
19.6 to MJ Guptill, Malinga cleans up Guptill off the last ball, the leg bail is on the ground, full ball again from Malinga, Guptill skipped away beyond leg stump to give himself room, he misses the ball and is bowled. 170/4
Ajantha Mendis402115.2591000
12.6 to JD Ryder, Mendis does the trick, Ryder holes out to extra cover, that ball stopped on Ryder, who was down the track, nowhere near the pitch of the ball, miscues to extra cover. 109/2
Sanath Jayasuriya402225.5081000
10.2 to BB McCullum, the crowd goes delirious as McCullum chips the ball back to Jayasuriya, he was down the track and checked his attempted on-drive, a leading edge pops up to the bowler, McCullum mises his half-century, he has done his bit though. 84/1
15.3 to LRPL Taylor, Jayasuriya has struck, this is a big blow, New Zealand lose Taylor's big hitting, he was looking to slog it to midwicket, it was a straight delivery, Taylor misses and is hit in front of middle and off, the umpire has his finger up instantly. 127/3

Shane Bond401834.50121000
0.5 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan has holed out to deep square leg, great start from Bond, Dilshan comes down the track and swings it, not enough on that shot, and Guptill has an easy catch near the boundary. 2/1
17.3 to RJMGM Rupasinghe, low full toss does the trick for Bond, Rupasinghe gets it very low on his bat and can only lob it towards cover, Vettori completes a simple catch. 129/6
19.5 to KMDN Kulasekara, this time the length is slightly shorter, Kulasekara can get underneath one finally, but he hits it too high with nowhere-near enough distance, the ball swirls towards Taylor at cover. 148/8
Kyle Mills302227.33104010
1.1 to ML Udawatte, New Zealand have two, Udawatte is gone, another batsman who is done in because the ball stopped on him, it was a back of a length ball outside off, Udawatte was halfway through the stroke before he checks his shot, the ball pops up towards point for a simple catch. 2/2
3.2 to ST Jayasuriya, Jayasuriya is gone, Sri Lanka's chances are fading fast here, the crowd has lost its voice, he goes for the short-arm jab this time, gets it high on his bat and the ball lobs up to Taylor at midwicket for a simple catch. 11/3
Ian Butler403408.5072110
Daniel Vettori302709.0022010
Nathan McCullum301826.0041000
10.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, a well-judged catch from Ryder ends the Jayawardene show, a top edge swirled towards short fine leg, Ryder has to make some ground before he jumps to take an overhead catch with his back facing the wicket. 78/4
10.6 to AD Mathews, Nathan McCullum gets two in an over, could this be curtains for Sri Lanka? Mathews tries to whip it to midwicket, only to find Taylor waiting there. 80/5
Jacob Oram302719.0054000
18.6 to KC Sangakkara, a great innings from Sangakkara comes to an end, he top-edges a pull back to the bowler, a killer blow from Oram, not to forget that's a dot ball as well, the crowd starts to head for the exit. 143/7
