In Wellington, Niroshan Dickwella is single-handedly rescuing Sri Lanka's innings.— ICC (@ICC) December 15, 2018
He has scored a quickfire half-century, and New Zealand are frustrated.

Both teams will be feeling that they had a good day today – Sri Lanka batted well at times with Dimuth Karunaratne 79, Angelo Mathews 83 and Niroshan Dickwella 73* all hitting half centuries and with the ball, New Zealand bowler Tim Southee picking up a 5fer (5-67).
This match is finely balanced and New Zealand will have to bat well tomorrow to get an innings lead.
New Zealand - Jeet Raval, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling(wk), Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Ajaz Patel, Trent Boult
Sri Lanka - Dimuth Karunaratne, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal(c), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella(wk), Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara
