BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Lasith Malinga403318.2591100
19.5 to RJ Nicol, it's dead straight in front of the stumps and the finger goes up. Pitched on middle on length, was going straight as he tried to flick but missed and hit him right in front of middle. Plumb it is. 140/7
Nuwan Kulasekara403117.7584000
1.1 to HD Rutherford, Kula strikes first ball! Pitched it up outside off with the angle, Rutherford drove and gave the outside edge to the keeper for an easy catch. 3/1
Angelo Mathews201718.5053000
2.3 to NT Broom, that's gone high and taken easily. Mathews bowled a bouncer and Broom replied by coming down the track in an attempt to pull it but gave a leading edge that went high and Mendis took it with both hands at mid-on. 14/2
Ramith Rambukwella401914.7591000
10.1 to TWM Latham, the full delivery gets him a wicket. He was pitching it up consistently and Latham swing his bat this time to hand it to Dilshan at backward point. He took it over his head and threw the ball high in the air - first wicket for Rambukwella. 62/4
Ajantha Mendis302016.6642000
7.4 to AP Devcich, and that's got called teamwork! Slower through the air on leg, Devcich goes for the slog and it's gone high the air. Fielders from long-on and deep midwicket are converging and while Kusal dropped it, the ball popped out of his hands and Kulasekara took it to complete the catch. 49/3
Tillakaratne Dilshan10707.0021000
Thisara Perera201316.5071100
14.4 to C Munro, short ball gets the wicket but on the off side. It was just outside off and Munro put his bat in the way and the ball went high towards third man with the bounce, good catch by Kula and NZ are stuttering here. 93/5

Kyle Mills302608.66103110
Mitchell McClenaghan403418.5073100
1.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, gets him this time even though Mahela is not happy. It pitched around leg, just marginally outside, was going straight and this big appeal is replied in affirmative from the umpire. Mahela shakes his head while walking off. 8/1

Rob Nicol201819.0033000
13.1 to MDKJ Perera, Kusal is gone and Nicol takes it! Bowled from round the wicket on length outside off, Kusal danced down the track for a big heave on the leg side and managed a leading edge high into the air. Nicol had to go to the left of the pitch to take an easy catch. 104/2
