Live Cricket Score : Sri Lanka Vs New Zealand 2012 - 1st Test, Day 2

Daijiworld Media Network

Galle, Nov 18 : Hello, and a warm welcome to day 2 of the first Test between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. The visitors were dismissed for a paltry 221 after winning the toss. They struck back late in the day removing debutant Dimuth Karunaratne for a duck. But the day certainly belonged to Sri Lanka and to Rangana Herath who took 5 wickets. The hosts will look to bat well and bat big as they seek to make the most of the advantage.
 
Pitch Report: There is no rough on one side, but there is some rough outside the line of the left handers. It is still a good wicket to bat on.

Decent short stint for the Kiwis. They got the debutant out for a duck, Southee being the successful bowler. Sri Lanks's day though, as they dismissed the visitors for a measley 221. More work awaits the Kiwi bowlers today.

Day 1 - Brief report :

Rangana Herath bagged his 11th five-wicket haul in test cricket as Sri Lanka bowled out New Zealand for an uninspired 221 in its first innings of the opening test on Saturday.

But New Zealand seamer Tim Southee struck back early in dismissing debutant opener Dimuth Karunaratne lbw for a duck as the hosts were 9-1 at close of play.

Southee made good use of the new ball and had a delivery swing sharply in to the left-hander and hit the pad. Tharanga Paranavitana was yet to score batting with night watchman Suraj Randiv, who is on 3.

Brendon McCullum top scored for the Kiwis with 68 runs and shared a promising 90-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Daniel Flynn (53) after the tourists were reduced to 40-3 after the tourists’ captain, Ross Taylor, elected to bat first after winning the toss.

It was a good toss to win for the visitors as the pitch at Galle has traditionally helped batting in the first three days and favored spin bowling in the fourth innings. However they wasted that chance.

“At Galle when you win the toss and bat first, you’re after a total in excess of 400. We weren’t able to do that today, but we have to address that,” McCullum said. “We’re going to get an opportunity to bat again in this test match and we have to make sure we did a lot better than we did today. Looking forward to tomorrow, we’ve got a big first hour in the morning to try and expose the Sri Lankan middle order and if we can do that, today’s misfortune will be a little bit easier to handle.”

“Not all my wickets came from turning balls. If we get a big score tomorrow we are in the game,” he said.

Seam bowler Shaminda Eranga, who gave his team a good start, finished with three wickets for 51.

Earlier, McCullum and Flynn (53) lifted New Zealand from a poor start until Herath broke their partnership. The pair spent two hours together and faced 198 deliveries.

McCullum was beaten by a flighted delivery from Herath and was bowled. His 125-ball innings included two sixes and eight boundaries.

James Franklin struggled in scoring three off 43 balls before being trapped lbw to Herath. Flynn was out for 53, caught by wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene off Herath with just three deliveries remaining before the scheduled tea break. His watchful innings came off 152 deliveries and included seven boundaries.

Eranga took two wickets in three deliveries in the first session to give the hosts a promising start. He halted New Zealand’s progress when he removed Guptill for 11 and No. 3 batsman Kane Williamson for a duck, both caught at slip.

Taylor was bowled by seamer Nuwan Kulasekara for nine off an inside edge.
