Sri Lanka: 1 Dimuth Karunaratne, 2 Udara Jayasundera, 3 Kithuruwan Vithanage, 4 Dinesh Chandimal (wk), 5 Angelo Mathews (capt.), 6 Kusal Mendis, 7 Milinda Siriwardana, 8 Rangana Herath, 9 Dushmantha Chameera, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Nuwan Pradeep

Day of big runs!

400 plus put on.

Mcullum with a quick 78 at an army of 125
Williamson with a solid 88
And the extremely lucky guptil must have edged his way to that 156........

I love watching test matches from NZ, something appealing about watching test cricket played on smaller more picturesque cricket grounds after a diet of larger stadiums.

I agree, and same goes for watching tests in England. The grounds are small and always packed (whereas 40,000 people will make the MCG look empty), and are all individual, unlike the generic concrete stadiums in Australia. I was filthy the day they tore down the members stand to replace it with the ghastly stand that they have now. Would love to watch a match of test cricket in Queenstown or Dunedin one day.

Stop being a tool. Guptill averaged like 12 against Australia and prior to this innings had an average under 30, so yes he was lucky to be in the Test side.

DRS is a bit farcical here, no hotspot or ball tracking on that last one, 3rd umpire seemed to want to ignore an obvious bottom edge too.

Sri Lankans aren't best pleased, this is the test pitch they're playing on in two days!

One of the greenest wickets I've seen. Ball probably doing a bit too much. Sri Lanka done well not to lose a wicket.
So take it if this test match is over in 3 days, there won't be massive complaints about the pitch

Hasn't really been any excessive swing so far and what was there hasn't kept up for that long..

Can't remember ever seeing the ball edge the stumps before!

This wicket should stir up some controversy ...
