Commentary

  , McCullum to Silva, no run, back of length wider outside off and he defends off the back foot again. The two batsmen exchange smiles, punch of gloves and walk back as it's stumps
  , McCullum to Silva, no run, touch back of length outside off and he defends
  , McCullum to Silva, no run, slower at 107kph and angled in, he waits for it and works it to midwicket
  , McCullum to Karunaratne, 1 run, down the leg side again, worked off the hips to fine leg for one
  , McCullum to Karunaratne, no run, full and wide outside off, he leaves it for the keeper
  , McCullum to Karunaratne, 2 runs, but he bowls on the leg side and Dimuth clips it past midwicket for two
  , Southee to Silva, no run, bit of outswing for the length delivery outside off, driven to the covers
  , Southee to Silva, no run, fullish around off stump, driven down the ground but he didn't quite middle that
  , Southee to Silva, no run, draws the outside edge with the length delivery outside off, but he played with really soft hands and it bounced well before reaching second slip
  , Southee to Karunaratne, 1 run, little back of length on off stump, turned off the back foot towards mid on for a quick one
  , Southee to Karunaratne, no run, on length and angled across from outside off, he lets it go
  , Southee to Silva, 1 run, length delivery on the middle stump, clipped to deep square leg for one

  , Neesham to Karunaratne, no run, full and wide outside off, left alone by him

  , Neesham to Karunaratne, no run, a bouncer over off stump, the batsman ducks underneath
  , Neesham to Karunaratne, no run, on length outside off, Dimuth gets his bat in the way in a semi-defensive shot. Safely defused
  , Southee to Silva, no run, length ball on the stumps, Silva drives tamely back to the bowler, who collects and threatens to throw down the stumps, much to the dwindling crowd's delight
  , Southee to Silva, no run, fuller outside off now, defended once more. Doesn't think about the single this time
  , Southee to Silva, no run, length on off stump, Silva defends onto the off side, and looks for a single, but there isn't one
  , Southee to Silva, no run, huge appeal from Southee. This pitches on off, and there's no movement, but it climbs on Silva and hits him near the hip. Silva's a small man, but that's still going over the stumps
  , Southee to Karunaratne, 1 run, short of a length on off stump, Dimuth stands tall pushes that wide of mid on, and they scamper one
  , Southee to Karunaratne, no run, length ball, pushed across Dimuth, who gets on the front foot and defends

  , Neesham to Silva, no run, length on off stump, Silva hangs back in his crease and defends
  , Neesham to Silva, FOUR, short and slightly wide, Silva gets on top of it and spanks it backward of point for four. The field doesn't movefour funs
  , Neesham to Silva, no run, short of a length on the stumps, Silva gets solidly in behind it
  , Neesham to Silva, no run, length ball on off stump, Silva squeezes it in front of point. There is a bit of miscommunication as Dimuth hares down the pitch, but is sent back in time
