0.2 to MJ Guptill, length delivery that straightens - perhaps cuts away a bit - does the trick. It landed on a length around middle and leg and shaped away a touch. Guptill was looking to work it to the on side and was surprised by the away movement. The ball flew of the leading edge to backward point. Pouched! 100th ODI wicket! Nice little moment. 2/1
29.5 to GJ Hopkins, Was it a catch or a bump? They refer to the upstairs. Clean catch! The slow loopy dipping full delivery does the trick. Hopkins lunges forward, gets surprised by not only the lack of pace but how rapidly it dipped on him and ended up slicing it to point. Clean catch. It went straight of the bat. It bounced before it hit the bat but not after. 123/6
29.6 to DR Tuffey, Clatter! Yorked! Full, pacy, straight. Gone! The bat came down late, the ball whooshed under it. Save the foot campaign was on there! It was on the leg stump and Tuffey made sure his foot didn't come in the way!. 123/7
Nuwan Kulasekara8.113514.28315010
48.1 to TG Southee, He goes for the big hit but drags the slower one to Dilshan at deep square-leg region. 192/10
Angelo Mathews1013633.60434010
10.1 to LRPL Taylor, Dead plumb! That tendency to push that front leg across has done him in. It was a length delivery that moved in towards the middle stump. Taylor, as he often does, pushed the front leg across and then tried to get the bat around the front pad. Too late. Trapped!. 47/2
10.3 to KS Williamson, Two ducks in a row. Oh dear. He can take heart from a Sri Lankan batsman who went on to become the captain - Marvan Atapattu. This one was full and outside off stump and Kane Williamson went for the drive. The shift to the front foot wasn't quick enough, the weight transfer wasn't smooth and he ended up chasing it a bit and edged it to left of first slip where a good lunging catch has been taken. He shakes his head in disappointment as he walks away.. 47/3
23.1 to BJ Watling, And he is gone now. Jinx and stuff, if you are one of those who believe in them. It was the surprise bouncer from Angelo and Watling tried to pull it from outside off stump. But he could only top edge it straight up and Sanga moved to his left to take a dolly. Fine knock but it's over now.. 101/5
Ajantha Mendis1004214.20331110
44.4 to NL McCullum, Nathan falls after a responsible hand. He went down on his knee and ended up slicing it high towards mid-off.. 178/9
Rangana Herath1003523.50321000
22.3 to SB Styris, Important strike by Rangana. Nicely flighted loopy delivery that turns away from the off stump and Styris edges the intended cover drive. Yet another catch by Mahela at first slip. Herath is delighted.. 99/4
36.6 to KD Mills, flighted delivery lands on the middle and leg and turns. Mills went for the big hit to the on side and got the leading edge and the long-off fielder ran in to pouch a simple catch.. 143/8

Kyle Mills9.514144.16375020
2.1 to TM Dilshan, wicket! Mills has taken the swirling, curling, missile on its return to the earth! That was a length ball on Dilshan's middle and leg, he was a little early on the flick and he ended up getting the most healthy of top-edges.. that took off, it crossed the stratosphere.. it broke into free space, and then lost its momentum and decided to return to our planet.. Mills on his follow through waited.. and waited.. A few more fielders converged, but Mills was the chosen one.. and he pouched it, tumbling away on the pitch. Big wicket!. 11/1
36.1 to WU Tharanga, Caught at deep cover. It was the slower one, fullish outside off, and he ended up chipping it to Watling in the deep. Fine knock, though. He has done his job.. 162/4
36.4 to AD Mathews, Caught or did it bounce just before Ross Taylor took it? Taylor is claiming it. Clean catch, too. The umpires have gone upstairs. It was flicked uppishly to right of short midwicket and Taylor dives to take it. Looks Dettol clean to me. Angelo has to go. Out for a duck.. 164/5
38.3 to HMRKB Herath, Hello! Hello! What is happening out there? They took the Batting Powerplay to go for the Bonus point but have lost wickets in a heap here. Herath tries to flick the off cutter to the on side but gets a leading edge and Taylor holds on to a dolly at short cover. 180/7
Daryl Tuffey503106.20175010
Tim Southee604116.83143130
37.5 to KMDN Kulasekara, High bouncer outside off stump and Kula top edges the pull shot to Hopkins. He tried to fetch it from outside off but was thwarted by the extra bounce. Six down. Now then .. now then..!. 177/6
Andy McKay402606.50114000
Nathan McCullum702313.28252000
26.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, Ah! So simple. So soft. It was flighted outside off stump and Mahela chipped it straight to short extra cover!. 119/3
Kane Williamson10606.0040020
Scott Styris802212.75321000
19.6 to KC Sangakkara, Guptill takes a stunner at short extra cover. Absolute P E A C H. He flew. It was driven low and well to the right of him and he flew with his right hand stretched out. A you tube moment!. 96/2
