19.3IUdana to DMitchell
THAT IS IT! Another slower ball on the pads, Mitchell tucks it wide of deep mid-wicket with soft hands and calls for two straightaway. They get it with ease. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
19.2IUdana to DMitchell
Brilliant bowling. Slower ball outside off, Mitchell swings his bat at it but misses. Perera dives in front and gathers it. He is quick to get up and save the bye.
19.1IUdana to MSantner
BYE! Risky run, that! A slower delivery, dropping on a fuller length from the back of Udana's hand. Santner swings early and misses. They attempt for a bye and Mitchell dives at the striker's end as Perera misses the stumps. Would have been a goner in case of a direct hit.
18.7LMalinga to DMitchell
Full toss on middle, Mitchell drives it straight but the ball gets stuck on Malinga's boot. Mitchell comes out for a single but he's sent back. Lasith has a shy at the keeper's end but it hits Daryl who was putting a desperate dive to get back in. Malinga appeals for obstructing the field but the umpire is unmoved. 3 needed off the last over now.
18.6LMalinga to DMitchell
SIX! Just over and this probably kills the game. Full on off, Mitchell smashes it over long on. The fielder in the deep thinks he has a chance, he puts in an effort but misses.
18.5LMalinga to MSantner
Full on middle, Santner comes down the track and strokes it towards long off for one. 9 needed off 8 now.
18.4LMalinga to MSantner
Good ball but also good running. Full on middle and off, Santner looks to play it straight but the ball goes off the outer half of his bat towards point. They call for two and get it.

17.6IUdana to MSantner
Full and on middle, Santner eases it through wide mid on and comes back for the second run. 13 from the over. Going right down to the wire.
17.5IUdana to MSantner
SIX! This has gone the distance. What a shot under pressure. Santner has done that in the Indian T20 League for Chennai as well. Fullish and right in the slot for the batsman, Santner goes full monty and dispatches it over long on, just over the leaping fielder at the edge of the rope.
17.4IUdana to DarylMitchell
NOT OUT! Udana delivers it very full around leg, Daryl tries his best to flick it on the leg side but misses. He is struck on the pads, they appeal but the umpire disagrees. The batsmen cross. Malinga takes the DRS but the Ball Tracker confirms that it pitched outside leg. Get on with the game, 26 needed more off 14 balls.

17.2IUdana to MSantner
Goes for a yorker but it turns out to be a low full toss outside off, Santner chips it over mid off and returns for the second run.

Nicely bowled. He angles a length delivery wide outside off, Mitchell reaches out for it and mistimes his drive towards extra cover. A single is taken.
16.6WHasaranga to MSantner
Wrong 'un, flatter and shorter outside off, Santner hangs back to punch it through the line but misses. Hasaranga finishes his spell. Fantastic debut, 4-0-21-2!
16.5WHasaranga to RTaylor
OUT! Big blow to the Kiwis! The debutant has trapped the big fish in front. A lovely leg spinner by Wanindu, he lands it full on the leg stump line and gets it to straighten from there. Taylor bends his back leg in an attempt to slog it across the line. But he misses the ball completely and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the finger goes up. Deep down Rosco knows that he is gone as he swings his bat in disgust and then takes a chance by going for the DRS. The Ultra Edge detects nothing and the Ball Tracker returns three reds. Taylor walks back dejected and all the players follow him back in the hut as the rain has picked up its intensity.
16.4WHasaranga to RTaylor
Loopy and on off, Taylor drives with the spin but finds the cover fielder.

15.3KRajitha to RTaylor
Low full toss outside off, Taylor drags it towards deep square leg for a single.
15.2KRajitha to RTaylor
AERIAL... DROPPED! Full toss on middle, Taylor tries to hoick it over mid-wicket but fails to middle his shot. The ball goes high in the air, Shehan Jayasuriya runs back from square leg, puts in a dive but the ball goes right through his hands. Lucky escape for Rosco. Two more added to the total.
15.1KRajitha to DMitchell
Lucky runs! Slower delivery, landing full and close to off, Mitchell winds up for a big heave across the line but inside edges it past the leg stump. The short fine leg fielder pulls it back and the batsmen get three runs.
14.6WHasaranga to RTaylor
Play and a miss! Floated ball outside off, turning away, Ross tries slogging against the spin and misses. Perera breaks the stumps but nothing doing. 3 from the over, 11 in the last two, Sri Lanka making a comeback here. 51 needed off the last five overs.

13.6LMalinga to DMitchell
A low full toss on off, Mitchell only manages to push it as far as the cover region and takes a run. 8 runs and a wicket from the over, a good one given the situation.
13.5LMalinga to DMitchell
Back of a length ball on middle and leg, angling down, Daryl tries to glance but misses. It goes off his thigh pad to fine leg and they take a couple of leg byes.
13.4LMalinga to DMitchell
Nails his yorker this time, around off, Mitchell does well to dig it out safely.
13.3LMalinga to deGrandhomme
OUT! Wicket number 99 for Lasith Malinga and he now has become the leading wicket-taker in this format. What a moment to do so! His team needed a breakthrough and the Slinga has provided just that. A low dipping full toss in the line of the stumps, de Grandhomme is late with the swing of his bat and it goes on to hit the base of the middle stump. The crowd erupts. The dangerous stand is broken. 57 needed off 39 balls and Sri Lanka have got an opening here.
13.2LMalinga to RTaylor
Malinga fails to hit the yorker mark again, it's a full toss and Taylor pushes it out through mid-wicket for a single.
13.1LMalinga to RTaylor
FOUR LEG BYES! Wrong line to begin a new spell. Malinga slips a very full ball on leg, Taylor fails to flick as he is beaten for pace. The ball though clips his pads and races away to fine leg for a boundary. Doesn't matter how the runs come in this format as long as they come.
12.7IUdana to deGrandhomme
SIX! No question about this one. It has cleared the ropes with ease. Full on off, de Grandhomme smashes it over covers for a maximum. 17 off the over. 61 off the last 4. New Zealand on the driver's seat now as they need 62 in 42 now.
12.6IUdana to deGrandhomme
FOUR! Just about hits the turf before the ropes! Slower ball on off, it is slightly short. De Grandhomme picks the length early and whacks his pull over mid-wicket. The ball hits the ground marginally before the ropes and it has been signalled as four!
12.5IUdana to RTaylor
Fuller on the pads, Taylor turns it behind square on the leg side for a single.
12.4IUdana to RTaylor
This is smart batting. Full on middle and leg, Taylor flicks it with soft hands towards cow corner. The man at long on is deep, Taylor and Colin are quick too and they get the second with ease!
12.3IUdana to RTaylor
Slower ball on the pads, Taylor glances it towards mid-wicket and gets a couple.
