OUT! Caught. Ajaz Patel to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to short leg, by Latham. The big wicket goes!

Outstanding anticipation from Latham at short leg, who saw Dickwella moving into the shot early and moved quickly into the line of the shot. Brilliant.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Dilruwan Perera. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Taylor. Another falls for Sri Lanka, and the frustration shows for Dickwella at the other end. Should not have played at that one. He threw the bat at it and it caught the outside edge, flying to Taylor at slip. Good catch by Taylor, had to move well. With about 30 minutes until Tea, can Sri Lanka survive?

OUT! L.B.W. Tim Southee to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot padded, padded to. That is the big wicket! Karunaratne does not end up playing a shot and that delivery jags back. He reviews it, but it is cannoning into the stumps, despite impact being outside the line. He will regret not playing a shot there. That was a pretty poor over from Southee up until that point, but gets the massive breakthrough - that is his 250th Test wicket too.

OUT! Caught. Ajaz Patel to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, outside edge to second slip, by Southee. There is the fourth wicket and Sri Lanka are in all sorts of trouble. Drift and a bit of turn got de Silva there and that was not the shot the situation called for once again. You sense that they will not be able to see out this day. Luckily for them they have still got their caprtain to come in, but he could be forced to bat with the tail.

FOUR! Lasith Embuldeniya to BJ Watling. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Too wide there and Watling just has to help it on it's way. Too easy for the New Zealand batsmen at the moment.

110.6

Welcome to the fifth and final day of this intriguing Test match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. The New Zealand batsmen dominated yesterday to put their team in a commanding position on the final day. They have not delcared as of yet, with de Grandhomme and Watling pushing for centuries. They are currently 138 runs ahead and still have an innings up their sleeve should they require it. We should see some aggressive cricket from New Zealand today, who will be giving everything they have got to force a victory. Sri Lanka, meanwhile, have the daunting task of batting out an entire day, with the forecast looking reasonably good today. Both Karunaratne and Dickwella failed to take to the field yesterday, compounding the task ahead. Their skipper wonâ??t be able to come in until number seven, which is a massive blow to Sri Lanka considering his recent form at the top of the order. It should be a cracking day of cricket with a possibly inconsistent wicket, a forced new-look top order, and a New Zealand attack with it all to play for.

Welcome to Day 4, and we are getting to the pointy end of this Test. After the first two days were hampered by rain, it was great to have a full day of cricket. It was riveting stuff, with many momentum swings and some standout performances. Unfortunately, rain has wiped out the entire first session. It will be interesting to see the approach from both teams as they come back out, with a win vital for New Zealand at the start of the World Test Championship after losing the first match of this series. Sri Lanka are not under any pressure to force a result, so you would think they will be playing for a draw when they do get the chance to get out there.

Dilruwan Perera to Henry Nicholls. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal. Out of nowhere the rain has started pouring down. There was always a possibility of rain this afternoon, but no-one expected it to come that quickly. The groundsman are scrambling to get the covers on now, as that caught everyone off guard. New Zealand have looked very solid after the Tea break, but haven't put on too much scoreboard pressure yet. Latham has been the rock of this New Zealand innings and has never allowed the Sri Lankan bowlers to get too comfortable. It looks like a serious downpour at the moment, but hopefully it will clear quickly so wecan get a bit more play in today.

OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Kane Williamson. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge to second slip, by Mendis. That's the big wicket! Kumara has started this spell sensationally, and picks up the most important wicket of the innings in Williamson. Slightly bizarre dismissal there, with Williamson trying to run it down, but he had little margin for error with two slips in place. Kumara is bowling serious heat here, nudging 150 km/h.

OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Jeet Raval. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by de Silva. Perera with the early breathrough! That was an excellent delivery, flighted well and turned sharply to find the edge. Raval just sort of put his bat there and expected to find the middle. Instead, it leads to an easy catch to the man of the moment de Silva.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. What a glorious innings, take a bow Dhananjaya de Silva. A streaky shot to bring up his ton, but it is irrelevant. He has dragged his side back into this contest in a truly entertaining innings. He has mixed patience with flair, and New Zealand - especially Trent Boult - will be ruing dropping him on just nine runs.

FOUR! Trent Boult to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. A bit of luck there.

Nicely controlled shot there from de Silva, and it just beats Patel out on the boundary. He is batting brilliantly this morning, and Sri Lanka might still be able to put a few more runs on the board if someone can stick with him.

Welcome to Day 3 of this clash between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. So far, the match has been interrupted by incessant rain. With only 66 overs possible in the first two days, a result in looking unlikely. However, given the amount of moisture around, it would be surprising if there isn't a bit of life in the pitch. If the bowlers from either side can get on a roll, who knows what might happen. There's a bit of rain about again today, but thankfully the forecast is not as bad as the previous days.

It was an excellent innings from the captain, but he will be disappointed he could not go on to make a big score. You sense this could end quickly for Sri Lanka from here.

Karunaratne is looking so calm, but the same cannot be said for his batting partners. Another bizarre dismissal. This time it is Perera who shoulders arms to a delivery that cannons into his pads. The umpire does not hesitate to raise the finger. New Zealand are gathering momentum now.

That was a pretty poor delivery from Boult, down the leg-side and did not really carry any danger - until Matthews managed to find an edge. That was a classic example of a batsmen getting himself out. Good anticipation from Watling to get himself in-line with that delivery.

Colin de Grandhomme to Angelo Mathews. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Latham. Welcome to Day 2 of this second and final Test of the series. Day 1 was severely rain affected, and unfortunately it looks like the poor weather could play a major role again today. The forecast isnâ??t great, but hopefully there will be some play again today as this match looms as another intriguing battle. Karunaratne will resume one run shy of a half-century, and will be hoping to continue his brilliant form in order to lead Sri Lanka to a commanding first inning total. New Zealand, meanwhile, will be hoping they can resume where they left off, bowling a tight line and length, in the hope that the pitch just gives them a little bit of assistance. Weâ??ve had a slight delay to the 9:45am local time start, but luckily it hasnâ??t been too significant.

37.3

Colin de Grandhomme to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Raval. Bad light has stopped play here just as New Zealand were starting to get into a rhythm. They'll be disappointed, but you'd say it's the right call from the umpires as there's no protests from either side. That's Stumps! Day 1 has been cut short by rain and bad light, however it's been a magnificent effort by the ground staff to get any play at all today. The match is delicately poised at the moment, with Sri Lanka well on top at Tea. However, a brilliant performance after the break by Colin de Grandhomme has the game sitting evenly at the end of Day 1. Sri Lanka will be hoping they can restart again tomorrow after a reasonably disappointing final session. New Zealand, meanwhile, will be confident that if they can continue to be as disciplined as they were just before Stumps, they will be able to make big inroads into this Sri Lanka batting lineup tomorrow. Remember to join us for Day 2, where hopefully some lost time is made up - setting us up for another thrilling match between these two sides.

OUT! Caught. William Somerville to Lahiru Thirimanne. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Williamson. Wow, what a simple dismissal for New Zealand. The two openers haven't looked as comfortable after the change in bowlers and it brings about a wicket. Thirimanne just reaches for it and lobs the simplest of catches to Williamson at cover. After being so cautious and watchful, he will be disappointed with that soft dismissal and to be walking off the ground with just two runs to his name.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. After a frustrating morning where the rain well and truly set in, we look set to get underway after some excellent work from the ground staff. In the second and final Test of this series, New Zealand will be looking to avenge their fairly convincing loss to Sri Lanka in the first Test. They've made one change, with de Grandhomme replacing Santner - a selection that reflects early reports of a seam-friendly pitch. Sri Lanka, meanwhile, have replaced Akila Dananjaya with Dilruwan Perera. It's shaping to be another intriguing match, and New Zealand will be hoping a change in conditions could lead to a change in fortunes. Play should get underway shortly.
