BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kyle Mills403017.50114100
18.2 to NLTC Perera, this is a skier, Williamson settles under it and takes it! Change of pace foils Thisara's big-hitting intent. Cutter from Mills kept on a full length outside off. He made room for himself to blast it over the covers. Only succeeded in getting a thick outside edge. 116/8
Trent Boult402035.00153011
1.5 to MDKJ Perera, strangled down the leg side! Boult comes back big time! Kusal goes for a flick, a shot he's already used to great advantage in this innings. Only he had planted his front leg a little too far across and his balance wasn't the best. Walks back shaking his head. Might have a reason to feel aggrieved there, think it might have been off the pad.... 20/1
3.3 to TM Dilshan, one dil-scoop too many! Well, this was the reverse one. Boult keeps it back of a length on middle. Dilshan backed away and tried to get under it, but it was just too quick and for that stroke. Only manages to lob it to a back-pedalling Ronchi. 29/2
5.6 to KC Sangakkara, holes out at mid-off! Hit his bat too high and it turned in his hand as he tried to drag a short ball from outside off. It's Boult's third over and New Zealand are rewarded for persisting with the quick. Sanga was getting twitchy for being kept so quiet and went after one that wasn't quite there. 35/3
Corey Anderson301304.33101010
Mitchell McClenaghan402426.0092010
13.5 to AD Mathews, nicks off and McClenaghan has his first of the night! Simple length ball pushed across him and Mathews chased after it. The on-the-up drive ends up resulting in an outside edge and Ronchi pouches a regulation catch. 81/5
15.4 to KMDN Kulasekara, guided straight into the hands of short cover! Sri Lanka are being picked apart with the passing of each over. Back of a good length delivery pushed across him and Kula stays beside it and has smacked his first ball of the match straight to N Mac. 92/7
James Neesham2.202239.4252100
11.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, short and wide outside off but it ends up a wicket-taking delivery! Thirimanne has slapped it down the throat of deep third man! Possibly the worst ball of the match so far, but the pressure that's been put on Sri Lanka fetches the wicket. Think this went right off the bottom of the blade as he unleashed a cut to with the intent of clearing the ropes. 65/4
19.1 to SMSM Senanayake, he's actually embarrassed by picking up that wicket. It was a juicy full toss with ample width outside off and Sena's slapped it into the hands of a diving Williamson. 119/9
19.2 to SL Malinga, golden duck for Malinga on captaincy debut! Fuller delivery fired in down leg as he had seen Malinga making room for himself. Ricochets off the pads and clatters into the stumps. 119/10
Nathan McCullum20814.0071000
14.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, that's his fourth sweep shot in this over. None of them have been timed and this one is so bad that he misses it and sees his leg stump knocked back!. 85/6

3.6 to BB McCullum, Herath, you beauty! Lures Baz out of his crease and his keeper does the rest! His flight was making the batsman nervous and he decided hitting out was the only option. Poor choice and Sri Lanka are right back in this. What lovely manipulation of flight from Herath!. 18/2
5.5 to LRPL Taylor, and a ball later Herath strikes and the umpire is convinced! This was bowled flatter and quicker, Taylor was forward to defend, didn't cover the line and the ball didn't exactly turn and went through with the angle, struck on the pads in front of middle. 23/3
5.6 to JDS Neesham, timber! Neesham beaten for turn there, Herath tosses this up from round the wicket, Neesham was forward and across and left a gap between pad and bat, the ball spins and hits the leg stump. 23/4
7.3 to L Ronchi, another one bites the dust! Herath is spinning circles around New Zealand and the Sri Lanka fans have found their voice! Another ripping turner, pitching on middle and turning away to strike the back pad rather low. Ronchi was in no way convicing with a feeble flick. Would have slammed into off stump. 29/5
15.3 to TA Boult, that's five for Herath! Sri Lanka go through to the semi-final! Saw the batsman racing down the track and shortened his length. Gets some turn off the deck as well, which he tries to ride. But there is a slip in place and Mahela pouches it safely.. 60/9
Lasith Malinga201306.5021000
Sachithra Senanayake30321.00150000
9.3 to NL McCullum, presents a simple catch to midwicket! Another one that holds on the pitch a little more, and the elder McCullum also succumbs to a brain fade. Moves across to off stump and clips it straight to the fielder. 33/6
13.3 to KD Mills, goes for the reverse sweep. Nothing more than an escape shot, struck on the knee-roll and this seemed to be sneaking down leg, but the umpire doesn't think so. Concerted appeal from Sri Lanka and they've gotten away with one. This was sliding down leg, HawkEye says. 51/7
