41.4 W

OUT! Timber! All over for Sri Lanka. New Zealand win by 115 runs and take the series 3-0! Sodhi comes up with a googly for the number 11 batsman. He lands it outside off and gets it to spin back in. Pradeep swings his bat cluelessly and it goes under his bat to disturb the stumps. The Kiwi players are celebrating in the middle and shaking hands with the Sri Lankan batsmen.

41.3 0

Tossed up ball on middle, Nuwan gets on the front foot in defense.

41.2 0

Full and flighted on the pads, it's played off the pads to square leg.

41.1 W

OUT! Stumped! Lovely googly! The ninth one is gone! Malinga goes off the first ball he faces. Flighted beautifully on middle and Lasith comes down the track to slog it over mid-wicket. But what he doesn't read is the googly. The ball goes the other way after landing and the SL skipper is completely at sea. Seifert whips the bails off immediately. From 244/5 to 249/9. 4 wickets for 5 runs. The Lions have imploded quite spectacularly. One to go for 3-0.

End of Over : 41 1 Runs SL: 249/8
40.6 0

Play and a miss! Outside off, a speedy one, Sandakan throws his bat at it and misses. A couple of wickets from the over!

40.5 W

OUT! Another one bites the dust and Ferguson gets his fourth! As mentioned earlier also, Gunathilaka is quite stiff and that means he has very limited movement inside the crease. Lockie hurls in a sharp length ball at 142.2 kph and angles it into the left-hander. Danushka remains glued inside the crease, probably in an attempt to run it down to third man but it takes the bottom half of his bat and cannons onto the stumps. The last recognized batsman is also sent packing. End is nigh for Sri Lanka.

40.4 0

Fullish and on off, driven off the front foot to extra cover.

40.3 0

Oohhhh...this one nearly rolls back onto the stumps. A length ball angling into the batsman, Danushka offers a straight bat in defense but after blocking the ball moves back and goes over the stumps. Gunathilaka, who's a bit stiff, stood there watching the ball and didn't even try to shoo it away with his bat. Lucky there.

40.2 W

OUT! Pouched by Southee running to the left from mid off. Around the wicket and bowled at good pace, 142.8 clicks outside off stump. Chameera just tries to loft the ball over cover but it just goes up in the air. Southee runs to his left and takes the catch at extra cover. Good take. The seventh one goes, I sense just formalities remaining now.

40.2 1

Wide! Short and this one is down the leg side, the batsman leaves and the umpire stretches his arms.

40.1 0

Speeds in from 'round the wicket and digs in a bouncer around leg, Chameera ducks.

End of Over : 40 3 Runs SL: 248/6
39.6 1

Played to the point region by the batsman. They pick up a single.

39.5 0

Beaten! On a length outside off, Chameera pushes at it inside the line and misses.

39.4 0

Defended off the back foot by the batsman.

39.4 1

Bouncer again, called a wide this time as it goes well over the head of the batsman.
