5.6 to RJ Nicol, fuller ball, Nicol uses his feet again and tried to swing it over mid on. Barely gets any timing there and the ball lobs straight to mid on.. 16/1
30.6 to JEC Franklin, full and straight yorker, Franklin walked across and wanted to guide it towards fine leg, misses it and that was hitting the middle stump. 116/8
15.6 to LRPL Taylor, wide length ball, Taylor wanted to smash it towards the extra cover region but edges it straight to the keeper. Wild shot there by Taylor. 62/3
20.1 to BB McCullum, McCullum charges at Herath after playing a number of dot balls off him, but the ball was flatter and it went flat off the bat, straight to Chandimal at long on.. 73/4
27.4 to KS Williamson, 79.8 mph, it is the googly again, flighted outside off, Williamson wanted to drive it to the cover region and is beaten by the flight, the ball, to his horror, then spins in and hits the top of middle and leg.. 105/5
27.5 to NL McCullum, it is two in two now, another googly to bamboozle Nathan McCullum. Flighted outside off and McCullum goes forward for a poke, the ball turns in to him and hits the off stump.. 105/6
29.2 to AM Ellis, flighted on the middle, Ellis goes for a sweep and misses the ball completely as it hits him in front of middle and off. Easy decision for the umpire there. The ball didn't turn as struck the batsman on the full.. 107/7

Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Upul Tharanga, 7.3 ov), 2-123 (Dinesh Chandimal, 22.4 ov), 3-128 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 25.2 ov)
22.4 to LD Chandimal, round the stumps, length ball, comes in with the angle, Chandimal attempts it to drive it through the covers, leaves a wide enough gap between his bat and pad for an elephant to pass through, the ball hits the top of off. No celebration from the bowler, who could have had him out a few times today.. 123/2
7.3 to WU Tharanga, short of length, and Tharanga, who played that lovely shot last ball, tries to repeat it, but plays it in the air straight to Rob Nicol's hands at point. He was finally looking settled but has been taken down by Southee again.. 36/1
25.2 to HDRL Thirimanne, short and outside off, Thirimanne attempts a nothing pull from way outside off, the ball takes a bottom edge and the keeper accepts the catch with glee. A nothing shot by the batsman, who probably wanted to finish the game in style. 128/3
