Recent Balls:

106.2 - T Boult to D Chameera

In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, hit pad to. A classic Boult delivery pitching on leg, a hint of swing and missed by Chameera. He reviews, but three red lights spell the end for him and with Mathews not returning Sri Lanka too. Just like that the match is over. After the grit and determination of yesterday it took just 12 minutes and 14 balls for New Zealand to wrap things up this morning. Conditions were more in their favour, but the visitors will be unhappy with how quickly they let things slip away. For New Zealand it's a deserved victory, there have been some good rearguard moments from Sri Lanka, but the hosts have dominated for more sessions and days and are well worth the 1-0 series win to round out 2018. The turn into 2019 will see a change to white ball cricket, we'll see you then
