Trent Boult to Angelo Mathews. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Patel. Sri Lanka complete a very good victory at home in the first of the two Tests against New Zealand. It has been up and down over the five days but it was the home side that won the key moments. Dimuth Karunaratne stood out with his century in the fourth innings and they made the chase of 268 look extremely easy on a turning pitch. Credit also to Akila Dananjaya for his five wicket haul in the first innings and also to the Kiwis for showing fight with bat and ball when it was required.Two evenly matched teams who provided an entertaining match for both sets of spectators. On to Colombo for the 2nd Test on the 22nd. Join us then.

OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Kusal Perera. Length ball, off stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Santner. New Zealand pick up another. It was a risky game which Perera was playing and eventually it caught up with him. Cramped for room as he used his feet and the bat twisted in the hands, gifting the easiest of catches to mid on.
