  • 49.5

    APPEAL! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Chameera, by Fernando, by Dickwella, appeal made for Run Out. Nicholls is screaming at Neesham to come back. Neesham should have been run-out had Pradeep collected it and in the end there is a chance at the other end. Nicholls is quick though and makes his ground easily.

  • 49.4

    FREE HIT. SIX! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Six more. It may be a free-hit but that doesn't matter to Nicholls who is playing a superb innings at the death.

  • 49.4

    FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control to deep cover for 1 run. Waist high full toss which is put away. Nicholls is not missing out on anything.

  • 49.3

    Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, to long on for 2 runs.

  • 49.2

    FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Slower ball half volley, off stump backing away driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Wow, this has flown off the bat. Nicholls feigns to go in front of the stumps but then backs away and drills the drive. Scorch marks across the turf.

  • 49.1

    FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Leg cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Heaved over square leg. Everything is going to the rope.

  • 48.6

    SIX! Lasith Malinga to Jimmy Neesham. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Right in the slot. Neesham is not going to miss out in the form he is in. Ends an expensive over for Malinga.

  • 48.6

    Wide Lasith Malinga to Jimmy Neesham. Off cutter short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 48.5

    FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Jimmy Neesham. Off cutter short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Helped fine around the corner. This is not good bowling from Malinga.

  • 48.4

    Lasith Malinga to Henry Nicholls. Off cutter short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, in the air under control to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Shanaka.

  • 48.3

  • 48.2

    SIX! Lasith Malinga to Henry Nicholls. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. A first ODI ton and brought up in some style. Picked up off the legs with immense timing. The helmet was off before the ball was even over the rope.

  • 48.1

    Lasith Malinga to Jimmy Neesham. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air under control to mid wicket for 1 run, dropped catch by Fernando.

  • 47.5

    FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge past third man for 4 runs. Unfortunate as a bowler but that is the risk of having third man inside the ring.

  • 47.4

    Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Slower ball back of a length, off stump moves in front sweeping, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 47.3

    SIX! Nuwan Pradeep to Henry Nicholls. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. It looked as though Nicholls was deceived by a good slower ball but he has been in long enough to be able to hit the ball over the rope. His highest ODI score.

  • 47.2

    Nuwan Pradeep to Jimmy Neesham. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control to long on for 1 run.

    OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Ross Taylor. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, mis-timed in the air under control to deep square leg, by de Silva. Straight down deep square leg's throat. Not the elevation required this time from Taylor as he slapped the ball hard but flat. Another brilliant innings from him.

  • 41.4

    OUT! Bowled. Ish Sodhi to Nuwan Pradeep. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to.

    A second googly not picked by the lower-order and Sodhi picks up his third. Sri Lanka have been all bowled out for 249 and lose by a large margin of 115 runs. That win means New Zealand complete a clean sweep of the ODI series 3-0.
    It has been a dominant day for the Kiwis with both bat and ball. A score of 364 was too much in the end and even though Sri Lanka got a good start regular wickets in the middle overs derailed their chase. It was then a lot to ask of Thisara Perera, although he did give it a good shot with 80 from 63, but once he fell the tail went like dominoes. Next time these two teams face-off will be in a one-off T20 on the 11th. Do join us then.

  • 41.3

    Ish Sodhi to Nuwan Pradeep. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Sodhi.

  • 41.2

    Ish Sodhi to Nuwan Pradeep. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Seifert.

  • 41.1

    OUT! Stumped. Ish Sodhi to Lasith Malinga. Googly length ball, off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Seifert. Completely deceived by the wrong-un. The Sri Lankan captain dances down but can't get to the pitch and Seifert takes a very smart grab as the ball passes between bat and pad.

  • 40.5

    OUT! Bowled. Lockie Ferguson to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, bottom edge to. Quick, quick fast. Third time lucky for Ferguson with the quicker delivery beating Gunathilaka for pace and smacking into the stumps before he can do anything about it.

    OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Dushmantha Chameera. Back of a length, down leg side on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Southee. First one in Chameera's half and he decides he needs to have a go at it. No timing on the shot though as the bat twists in the hands and loops straight up. Southee doesn't drop those.

    OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Thisara Perera. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Guptill. Take a bow Martin Guptill. New Zealand have dropped a couple of simple chances while Guptill has taken a special one-handed grab. Running backwards as well while keeping his eye on the ball and throwing out his left hand. Unbelievable.

    FOUR! Matt Henry to Thisara Perera. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Incredible shot as the ball doesn't get up as high as he expected. Still manages to somehow get his bat at an angle to lift the ball over short third man.
