Mahela Jayawardene is out for a run-a-ball 14 as he is caught behind trying to run the ball down to third man off the bowling of Ronchi. The partnership between him and Kumar Sangakkara was looking extremely dangerous and the New Zealand bowlers will feel that they’ve picked up the wicket at the right time.

Seekkuge Prasanna, who had walked in after Jayawardene’s dismissal was trapped in front for just one run after he was trapped in front of the wicket by Kyle Mills. The umpire had initially decided that the ball was missing leg-stump, but New Zealand took the review and the decision was reversed. New Zealand have scalped two back-to-back wickets, which puts them right back in the game.

New Zealand lead the series 4-1 and Sri Lanka are looking to salvage some pride by winning the seventh and final ODI at Wellington.
