Adam Milne1003013.00450130
2.4 to MD Gunathilaka, NZ appeal for caught behind. Not given by umpire Jones. Milne wants a review. Nice and full, slanting away outside off, Gunathilaka flirts with it before pulling his bat away rather belatedly. Hot Spot picks up a faint nick, and the on-field call is overturned. There was a spike on RTS as well.. 13/1
Matt Henry1014944.90415220
5.1 to TM Dilshan, The short ball nabs Dilshan. Banged in shortish and outside off, hustling Dilshan. He is a bit late onto the pull, top-edging it to midwicket, where the debutant Nicholls snags the catch above the eyes. Henry exults. 20/2
7.4 to HDRL Thirimanne, The dot-ball pressure gets to Thiri. The finger goes up as Henry has his second. Full and swings back in, Thiri gets his front leg across and is trapped in front, hit well below the knee-roll in line with middle. Chandi prompts Thiri not to take the review. 23/3
7.5 to AD Mathews, Smartly taken by Latham. This is a big, big wicket, Mathews is gone for a first-ball duck. Full and swings away outside off, Mathews nibbles at it and nicks it behind. Latham dives to his left at second slip and completes an impressive, low catch. 23/4
9.4 to LD Chandimal, Henry brings the cordon into play again. He is on fire! Teasing fuller length awayswinger outside off, leaving Chandimal poking loosely. He edges it and Taylor, playing his 300th match for NZ, takes it at first slip around waist height. 27/5
Mitchell McClenaghan1024024.00404030
39.4 to KMDN Kulasekara, Ronchi pulls off a stunner! He flies to his right and takes a one-handed ripper. Kula shows his ace early as he jumps outside leg. McClenaghan follows the batsman and finds extra bounce. This might have been a slippery slower one. Kula has a big whoosh, slashing it behind. It looked to run away fine to third man... until Ronchi intervened. The fast-travelling ball nearly bounced out of the glove, but Ronchi managed to hang onto it. 164/8
41.5 to BAW Mendis, Mendis puts bat onto ball now, he gloves it behind to the keeper. He shuffles away outside leg, manufactures some room. Mendis can only tamely fend it to Ronchi. This is a simpler catch. 167/9
Doug Bracewell913734.11364000
17.4 to CK Kapugedera, Kapu hits it into the lap of Santner at short cover; much like target practice. Fuller length and outside off, Kapu throws his hands at an aerial drive. Straightforward catch for Santner. SL's recovery is broken as Kapu tosses it away on return. 65/6
38.5 to TAM Siriwardana, Siri skies it, Baz settles under it! Full, offcutting slower ball on middle as Bracewell tricks Siri. He attempts a leg-side slog and skewers it to mid-off. Siri, though, has added 56 after he was spilled by Nicholls. 163/7
46.6 to RAS Lakmal, Bracewell wraps up Sri Lanka for 188. Dug in short and outside off, Lakmal skips back and pulls it to Latham at deep midwicket. 188/10

10.1 to BB McCullum, Siri breaks NZ's racy opening stand. He gives this more air as Baz jumps down the pitch. He wants to launch it perhaps over cover. Baz does not get hold of the hit as he slices it to Lakmal at backward point. 108/1
16.3 to MJ Guptill, Guptill holes out to long-off! Pushed outside off, Guptill slams it flat.. right into the hands of Kulasekara. It's all too late for Sri Lanka, though. 164/3
Dushmantha Chameera201809.0073030
Tillakaratne Dilshan201015.0061010
15.5 to TWM Latham, bowled'em. Consolatory wicket for Dilshan and SL. Tossed up, Latham wants to loft it over mid-on again but fails this time as he yorks himself. Dilshan sneaks through the gate and disturbs the furniture to light up the zing bails. 162/2
