15.6LSandakan to SRance
OUT! Game over! What a terrific bowling effort from the hosts. A flighted ball on middle, Rance looks to sweep but fails to get bat on ball. He is hit flush on the pads. The Lankans appeal and the umpire agrees to end the New Zealand innings. Rance looks for a review but then he is informed that there is none left for New Zealand. Would not have mattered. Hawk Eye shows the impact to be umpire's call, around off and clipping the off stump, again, on umpire's call. The 36-run stand would've given the Lankan fans some worry. Rance should've tried to negotiate the ball and get Southee on strike but he went for the sweep to confirm the eventual.

Almost the end of the game. This a googly which beats the bat to go onto the pads. Hasaranga appeals but the umpire is not interested.The Hawk Eye shows that this was just clipping which means even if the Lankas had a review, the umpire's call would have been the final one.
