New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score - 2nd Test Match - Summary

End of Over : 106.2 SL: 236/9

So that is it from this game, that is it from the Test series as well. It all ended as one expected it to, the Kiwis take the series 1-0. Now though the two sides need to turn their attention to the 50-over format which begins on the 3rd of January with the first ODI being played in Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui at 1400 local (0100 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

106.2 W

OUT! Three reds and Chameera has to take the long walk back! Also the batsmen are seen shaking hands with the Kiwi players which means Angelo Mathews will not be coming out to bat. That is the end of the Test match and it is NEW ZEALAND WHO WIN IT BY 423 RUNS! Coming to the ball now, it is once again the in-dipper. It pitches around middle and leg and comes back in. Chameera looks to drive but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal follows and the umpire raises the finger. Chameera, being the last man has to go for the review. He does so but replays show that the on-field call is the right one. THE KIWIS WIN THE SERIES 1-0.

106.1 2

Length delivery on off, Chameera drives it through mid off. Williamson chases it and stops it comfortably. The batsmen pick up a couple.

End of Over : 106 1 Runs SL: 234/8
105.6 0

Left alone outside the off stump. The ball was on a full length and hits some sort of a crack and deviates away suddenly. Watling collects it well.

105.5 1

Almost! On the pads this one, Chameera flicks it in the air towards fine leg. There was a leg slip present but the ball goes just wide of the fielder there.

105.4 0

What happened here? The ball was on a short length and Chameera tried to duck and let it go but the ball didn't rise at all. The ball goes off the handle of Dushmantha's bat. Could've been painful if the ball had hit him on the glove.

105.3 0

Bouncer on middle, Chameera ducks under the ball and lets it go.

105.2 W

OUT! Two in quick succession. Perera has been bounced out here by Wagner. New Zealand 1 away now? Effort ball on middle, Perera doesn't duck out of the way and tries to pull this one. He is not in control and the ball just goes in the air as far as Kane Williamson at square leg, who runs back and takes an easy catch. New Zealand all but home here. Perera falls after a good hand.

105.1 0

Outside off, short of a length delivery, Perera defends off the back foot.

End of Over : 105 2 Runs SL: 233/7
104.6 0

Well outside off, left alone by the batsman at the last moment.

104.5 0

Slightly fuller just outside off, holds its line this time. Dushmantha defends well.

104.4 0

Length ball just outside off, Chameera defends this one with hard hands. The ball goes off the inside half of the bat on to the leg side.

104.3 W

OUT! TIMBER! Beauty of a delivery. Good length delivery coming into the batsman, Boult swings into Lakmal who looks to keep it out but there was a big gap between bat and pad. It went through that and he got bowled. New Zealand are three away from victory if Mathews comes out to bat.

104.2 2

Full toss on middle, Lakmal looks to flick it but it went of the inner half of the bat. It goes through mid-wicket. The batsmen pick up a couple.
