Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Martin Guptill, 0.4 ov), 2-11 (Tim Seifert, 1.3 ov), 3-21 (Henry Nicholls, 2.5 ov), 4-27 (Colin Munro, 3.3 ov), 5-55 (Mitchell Santner, 9.6 ov), 6-102 (Ross Taylor, 14.5 ov), 7-143 (Doug Bracewell, 17.3 ov)
0.4 to MJ Guptill, short of length, Gutpill was early into the pull and ends up skying it over mid-on, Mendis traces back and takes it with fingers pointing upwards. Was in the air for a long time and he had ample time to get under. 2/1
2.5 to HM Nicholls, bowled 'im! Fuller around off, a bit of shape in to the batsman who goes for a free-flowing drive, gets an inside edge on to the stumps, Malinga has got two. 21/3
1.3 to TL Seifert, a leading edge and Sri Lanka have two in two overs. Was a length ball around off, Seifert was looking to go leg side, closes the face a tad too early and Sandakan accepts a dolly at cover. Sri Lanka are pumped up. 11/2
3.3 to C Munro, short of length and goes for a pull, the extra pace this time works against him, was just outside off and he ended up slicing it towards extra cover, an easy catch for Shanaka there. New Zealand in deep trouble at 27 for 4. 27/4
17.3 to DAJ Bracewell, another slower one outside off, Bracewell goes straight but doesn't middle it, Dhananjaya from long-off sprints to his right and takes a tumbling two-handed catch just inside the boundary. 143/7
14.5 to LRPL Taylor, a wild swing from Taylor, was a length ball outside off and he was looking to hoick it towards midwicket, a bug appeal for caught behind, the umpire takes his time, but looks like Taylor walked there. 102/6
9.6 to MJ Santner, down the track but it hits him high on the bat. Goes straight down the ground but no distance on it, Thisara from long-off moves to his left to grab it as the long-on looks on. 55/5

TOTAL16.5 Ov (RR: 8.55, 82 Mins)144
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 0.5 ov), 2-41 (Kusal Perera, 3.3 ov), 3-45 (Niroshan Dickwella, 4.1 ov), 4-94 (Kusal Mendis, 9.5 ov), 5-118 (Thisara Perera, 12.3 ov), 6-119 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 12.6 ov), 7-128 (Dasun Shanaka, 14.1 ov), 8-138 (Lasith Malinga, 15.5 ov), 9-142 (Lahiru Kumara, 16.2 ov), 10-144 (Kasun Rajitha, 16.5 ov)
0.5 to S Samarawickrama, he's played him on first ball! A 148.5 kph screamer, on a length coming back into him from outside off. Tentative prod at the ball, which takes the inside edge, and hits the stump via the pads. The ball was just too quick for him, he had hardly got the bat down in time before it was on him. Doesn't help to get one that quick to your first ball on tour.. 11/1
12.3 to NLTC Perera, the short ball does the trick But this wasn't the quick Lockie bouncer, it was at 126 kph, bowled outside off from around the wicket. Thisara wanted to dismiss it, ends up too early in the pull and the ball goes off the end of the bat to long-off. Huge wicket. 118/5
12.6 to DM de Silva, cleaned him up Fast full and straight yorker at 147.4 kph - the stumps were rearranged before the bat came down. Ferguson has brought New Zealand roaring back into the match. 119/6
9.5 to BKG Mendis, slower ball gets him Southee had been good this whole over. This was bowled at just 102 kph, leg-cutter that pitched on middle. He tried to force it over extra cover it looked like, but ends up spooning a catch to mid-off.. 94/4
3.3 to MDKJ Perera, taken at mid-on yorker on the stumps, dug out but the bat turned in his hand and he didn't time it at all. Straightforward catch for Bracewell. Some breathing room for New Zealand perhaps. 41/2
4.1 to N Dickwella, top edge taken by the keeper Sri Lanka are wobbling after a good start. Bracewell had a good outing with the bat, now with his first ball back, he's sent back an in-form and dangerous Dickwella. Fuller length angled across him, he had a big swipe at it, but didn't get underneath it at all. The ball flew high off the top edge and Seifert called for it early, ran all the way to backward square leg and took it safely while tumbling. 45/3
15.5 to SL Malinga, all those swipes had to result in one top edge Santner slowed it down to 71 kph, kept it on the stumps. Malinga backed away to heave it, got a top edge that is taken comfortably between midwicket and long-on. 138/8
14.1 to MD Shanaka, tossed up and rapped on the pads. Big appeal and they have gone for a review. He got that to drift down and turn in from leg stump, to defeat the forward push and hit him on the pads. Looked a very good shout, but will umpire's call rule the day? No it won't! Three reds on ball tracking and that means another breakthrough for New Zealand. 128/7
16.2 to CBRLS Kumara, immediate revenge wrong 'un pitched outside off. He tried to repeat the last shot to go down the ground, but this spun the other way, took the edge and nestled in short third man's hands. Only a matter of time now. 142/9
16.5 to CAK Rajitha, it's all over on a good length, it wasn't full enough to be slog-swept, but that's the shot he goes for. Gets a top edge that flies over his head. Seifert calls for it and snaffles it near leg-slip. New Zealand win by 35 runs. 144/10
