OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Lasith Embuldeniya. Short, outside off stump ducked Fended, Gloved to gully, by Williamson. There is the final wicket and New Zealand win! Brilliant bouncer from Boult and all Embuldeniya can do is fend it away, popping it up for a simple catch to Williamson. Quite incredible that New Zealand have won considering all the play lost to rain. Latham and Watling can take most of the credit, with centuries forged under pressure, after New Zealand lost early wickets. A quickfire innings from de Grandhomme too ensured that New Zealand had plenty of runs to defend on the final day. A gritty innings from Dickwella almost denied New Zealand victory, but their relentless, disciplined bowling eventually brought about the mistake. The wickets were shared verry evenly amongst the bowlers. That squares the series at one apiece, with both sides taking away 60 points in the new World Test Championship. Latham takes out Player of the Match for his 154, whilst Watling is Player of the Series.

FOUR! Trent Boult to Lasith Embuldeniya. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. That was unexpected, but a magnificent shot nonetheless. Well timed clip off the pads.

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! An exceptional innings comes to an end, and it is his favourite paddle shot that gets him into trouble. 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.
