NZ won by 4 wickets
BALL BY BALL
C D Grandhomme
Santner swings the ball away to deep mid wicket to finish the game off. New Zealand have won the series with a game to play in a tight affair that could have gone either way. A huge partnership between Colin de Grandhomme and Tom Bruce put New Zealand in a really good position but right at the end, it looked to go Sri Lanka's way. A very good close match that we have been accustomed to in this series so far.
19.4 - W Hasaranga to M Santner
Googly length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.
Santner launches the ball out to the boundary, Shehan takes a brilliant catch running round the boundary edge but then collides with Kusal Mendis. Both players end up in heaps off the pitch, Shehan has carried the ball over the boundary for six but the real worry is for Kusal Mendis. Treatment staff sprint over to him and it does not look good at all.
19.3 - W Hasaranga to M Santner
Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs, mis-fielded by Jayasuriya.
Mitchell does not get all of this one and ends up picking out the man at long on.
19.2 - W Hasaranga to D Mitchell
Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air under control to long on.
Bruce set off to take the single but Mitchell hits the ball back at the bowler who has good awareness to spin around and throw the stumps down. Two new batsmen at the crease and this game has another twist.
19.1 - W Hasaranga to D Mitchell
Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, back to bowler, fielded by De Silva.

Bruce looks to have injured his knee in turning coming back for the second run.
18.4 - I Udana to T Bruce
Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Shanaka.
A good shot as he moves across his stumps to sweep the ball behind sqaure through the infield Fifty for Tom Bruce, a good innings and partnership with de Grandhomme but he has to accelerate now if New Zealand are to win this game.
18.3 - I Udana to T Bruce
Slower length ball, off stump moves in front sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
A quicker delivery by Udana and de Grandhomme could not control the shot. A big wicket for Sri Lanka to end a very good partnership.
18.2 - I Udana to C D Grandhomme
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Fernando.
