0.1 to P Nissanka, review first up!. This is full, fast, and swinging away from Nissanka about a foot outside off stump. He pushes his bat out at it and the New Zealand players appeal. It's turned down by the umpire, but Latham reviews. They've got him too. Snicko shows a feather edge as ball passes bat, and New Zealand and Milne have their first victim off the first ball.. 0/1
16.3 to KIC Asalanka, Slog sweeps the slower ball, finds Seifert at deep-backward square. Asalanka was on one knee early, tried to whack it off a length, ended up going straight to the fielder. Caught with fingers pointing up. Great anchoring innings though. Lister has his maiden T20I wicket.. 168/4
3.2 to BKG Mendis, gone! Shipley's short ball gets another Sri Lanka wicket. We saw that through the ODI series. This is on the stumps, and about midriff height. Mendis tries to get inside the line again and larrup that over short fine leg, but has mistimed it horrible, and the fielder there just needs to run a little way to his left and take a comfortable catch. An end to a promising innings!. 47/2
5.1 to DM de Silva, Neesham strikes straight away. Length outside off stump, which de Silva tries to drive on the up through mid off. Mistimes it terribly though, and it goes off the inside half of the bat, in the air, and to the fielder at mid on. Sri Lanka lose their third inside the powerplay. Just poor execution, really.. 65/3
17.1 to MD Shanaka, Slapped in the air, finds long-off. Was a length ball around off, Shanaka stayed leg side and looked to hit off the back foot. May have wanted to go wider. Ball was there for the shot, connection and placement weren't good enough. Neesham'll take those, especially at this stage.. 171/5

0.4 to TL Seifert, full, straight, huuuge appeal, and given out! This is flicked out the front of the hand, and hits Seifert on the front boot. It's hitting him in front of middle, and probably going on to strike leg, as the batter attempted to flick this to the on side, and missed. They take too long discussing whether to review, so Seifert doesn't send this upstairs.. 1/1
1.1 to CJ Bowes, ooof, what a start! Full, swinging, and through Bowes' defences. This is straightening in the air, pitching full, on middle stump, and Bowes doesn't get anywhere near this delivery, really. Whooshes in between bat and pad and clatters into the stumps. Madushanka is pumped.. 3/2
7.4 to TWM Latham, flicked off the thigh straight to deep square leg. This is back of a length again, on the stumps. Bounces a little more than Latham expects, and it hits high on the bat and floats up into the deep. Sub fielder Nuwanidu Fernando is there to settle comfortably under it. 66/3
18.6 to AF Milne, Swipes across, edge carries to deep third! Was a slot ball just outside off, Milne made room - which worked against him - and tried to slog it over long-on. Went low to Asalanka who took it. Madushan has his finger up. He leaves 13 for the final over.. 184/7
14.1 to MS Chapman, Slog sweep is flat in the air, it's straight to deep midwicket! Was a full ball at the stumps, Chapman went on one knee and tried to muscle it. DdS didn't have to move much, took an easy catch. Hasaranga hasn't had a great time against LHBs, he gets one this time. It's his first wicket in New Zealand, notes Abhimanyu.. 132/4
16.6 to JDS Neesham, Finds short third on the reverse, Hasaranga strikes off his last ball! Was slow and full around off, Neesham tried to power it but it looped off the top edge for a dolly. 156/6
15.4 to DJ Mitchell, Picks out deep midwicket! Shanaka with the big breakthrough. It's full on middle and leg, he clears his front leg and looks to flick it away, but doesn't get the distance on it. Dhananjaya takes the catch and a great knock from Mitchell comes to an end. 144/5
19.1 to R Ravindra, Slapped flat in the air, to the right of Hasaranga at long-off, and it's taken. Is that the game?! Was a slot ball that Ravindra tried to hit wide of long-off or over. Hasaranga slouches and catches the bullet close to his chest. 184/8
