He goes fuller this time and lands it around leg, it shapes back in a touch. Thirimanne looks to flick but misses. The ball hits the front pad. An appeal but the umpire shakes his head. New Zealand go for the review. Replays roll in and it shows, it is just about pitching in line and then, there was no doubt about it. Excellent use of the review and early breakthrough for New Zealand.
0.1 over (4 Runs) FOUR! The Lankan innings starts off with a boundary! Poor ball by Henry. On the pads, Thirimanne says thank you very much, he works it fine on the leg side and it races away to the fence. Could not have asked for a better delivery to get first up.
