2.4 to MNK Fernando, This time the edge carries! It's on a length on off, and was angling in. Nuwanidu looked to play it leg-side and closed the face of the bat, but the ball straightened after pitching and took the outside edge. Nicholls takes it at head-height moving to his left and New Zealand have their first wicket. 13/1
4.4 to BKG Mendis, Another edge, and this time, it carries and is taken! Full outside off, tempted Mendis into the drive and got the outside edge that flew to Mitchell at first slip at around chest height. He doesn't take it cleanly at the first go but holds on and Henry has his second. 13/2
37.5 to C Karunaratne, Henry has his third! Back of a length delivery jags in from outside off and gets the inside edge. Latham takes an easy catch. Karunaratne reviews it. Replays confirm he got an inside edge onto his hips and through to the keeper! Karunaratne has to go for 24. 150/9
7.5 to AD Mathews, This time it's Shipley! Another edge to slip, another wicket. Full outside off and straightening, Mathews was caught at the crease as he looked to defend. The ball goes to Mitchell who takes a simple catch at first slip. 18/3
31.4 to MD Shanaka, skies it, and taken comfortably at mid on! Length delivery just outside off stump that might have held in the surface a little. Shanaka has a mow across the line and makes a complete mess of it. He throws his head back almost immediately, and Henry does the rest at mid on to pile further misery on Sri Lanka!. 128/7
41.3 to CAK Rajitha, Cleans him up! Shipley gets his third as well and that is that. It's full on off, Rajitha looks to drive but the ball goes in between his bat and pad and takes the leg-stump. 157/10
14.3 to KIC Asalanka, Uh oh! He picks out deep midwicket with a flick! Asalanka's counter-attack quickly comes to an end as he tries to flick a full delivery on off. It goes high in the air and straight to the fielder!. 49/4
18.3 to DM de Silva, soft dismissal, oh dear! Full delivery just outside off stump that might have stuck in the surface a tad. de Silva has a swish across the line but because the ball has held up, and nipped away a shade, he gets a leading edge that spoons up to mid off. Henry runs back and completes a regulation catch as Sri Lanka continue to spiral!. 70/5
32.5 to PW Hasaranga, He has skied it and Latham makes no mistake! Mitchell bangs it in short, Hasaranga looks to pull and the top edge goes high in the air. Latham calls for it early and settles under it and takes it comfortably. Another duck for Sri Lanka as Mitchell picks up his third. 133/8

TOTAL32.5 Ov (RR: 4.84, 151 Mins)159/4
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Chad Bowes, 1.1 ov), 2-6 (Tom Blundell, 1.6 ov), 3-21 (Daryl Mitchell, 6.1 ov), 4-59 (Tom Latham, 14.5 ov) • DRS
6.1 to DJ Mitchell, edged and taken! Sri Lanka have another! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that nips away just a touch. Mitchell is tempted by the width at wafts at it, only to feather it through to Mendis, who gobbles up the chance! Sri Lanka are all over the Kiwis like a rash now!. 21/3
1.1 to CJ Bowes, and he gets Bowes first ball! Kumara is pumped! Full and hung just outside off stump. Bowes looks at the width and thinks he can carve it through the off side. The ball, though, moves just enough to take the outside edge and fly through to Mendis, who takes it in front of his face! Sri Lanka have the early wicket they were after!. 5/1
1.6 to TA Blundell, is there a nick? Sri Lanka think so but the umpire does not! Length delivery outside off stump that leaves the batter. Blundell has a nibble at it and seems to miss it. Sri Lanka, though, are convinced he has nicked it and they go upstairs! And looks like they are right! Blundell has indeed feathered it through to Mendis, and Sri Lanka have another in the powerplay! . 6/2
14.5 to TWM Latham, chops it on! Length delivery in the channel just outside off stump. Latham has a very loose waft at it without any foot movement and gets a thick inside edge that crashes into the top of middle and off stump! Just the injection of momentum Sri Lanka needed; not a shot that Latham would be very proud of, though!. 59/4
