OUT! Bowled. Ish Sodhi to Nuwan Pradeep. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. A second googly not picked by the lower-order and Sodhi picks up his third. Sri Lanka have been all bowled out for 249 and lose by a large margin of 115 runs. That win means New Zealand complete a clean sweep of the ODI series 3-0.It has been a dominant day for the Kiwis with both bat and ball. A score of 364 was too much in the end and even though Sri Lanka got a good start regular wickets in the middle overs derailed their chase. It was then a lot to ask of Thisara Perera, although he did give it a good shot with 80 from 63, but once he fell the tail went like dominoes. Next time these two teams face-off will be in a one-off T20 on the 11th. Do join us then.

OUT! Stumped. Ish Sodhi to Lasith Malinga. Googly length ball, off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Seifert. Completely deceived by the wrong-un. The Sri Lankan captain dances down but can't get to the pitch and Seifert takes a very smart grab as the ball passes between bat and pad.

OUT! Bowled. Lockie Ferguson to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, bottom edge to. Quick, quick fast. Third time lucky for Ferguson with the quicker delivery beating Gunathilaka for pace and smacking into the stumps before he can do anything about it.

OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Dushmantha Chameera. Back of a length, down leg side on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Southee. First one in Chameera's half and he decides he needs to have a go at it. No timing on the shot though as the bat twists in the hands and loops straight up. Southee doesn't drop those.

OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Thisara Perera. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Guptill. Take a bow Martin Guptill. New Zealand have dropped a couple of simple chances while Guptill has taken a special one-handed grab. Running backwards as well while keeping his eye on the ball and throwing out his left hand. Unbelievable.

FOUR! Matt Henry to Thisara Perera. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Incredible shot as the ball doesn't get up as high as he expected. Still manages to somehow get his bat at an angle to lift the ball over short third man.
