commentary

Over 19. 8 runs. Bowler: Doug Bracewell. Sri Lanka: 93/0(rr 4.89)

FOUR! Bracewell to Karunaratne. Bouncer, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Karunaratne hits the winning runs to seal an emphatic 10-wicket win for Sri Lanka, achieved before tea on day three. Things were finely balanced this morning, but a terrible batting display by New Zealand, against Herath in particular, gifted the hosts an opening, which the openers grabbed in style - they really put this pitch into context. The Black Caps lose a fifth straight Test and have major issues to resolve, especially with their batting.
