New Zealand won the toss and elected to field, as Sri Lanka took on New Zealand in their 1st Test match, in the two match Test series played at Wellington today.

Batting first, Sri Lanka was on 73 for 3 with Karunaratne 36*, and Mathews 30* at lunch.

Danushka Gunathilaka brought his bat across the pad in trying to negate late in-swing and was pinned plumb in front.

Dhananjaya de Silva was squared up by an out-swinger that he nicked to BJ Watling while Kusal Mendis flicked a full delivery that swung away a hint to short midwicket.

At 9 for 3, Sri Lanka needed their veteran to step up, and he gave them a glimmer of hope and a lesson for the others to emulate going forward.
