Wagner's on, for a bit of chin opera before the new ball.

What's happened here? Has the bail not come off again? Short ball fended, and hits the stumps at the base. Bails stay put.

WICKET! Lakmal. No harm done with those glue bails, as next ball is gloved to Williamson in the gully

Lakmal c Williamson b Wagner 4 (17b) 288/9 (78). Chameera 2

Wicket maiden from Wagner. Good call to bring him on. Pradeep the last man.

Dear Doug. Bowl a bit straighter. Yours, @ByTheMinCricket.

And with that he does, Chameera lob it over Boult at mid-off, who can't get back for the catch. Two runs.

Those two off the over. 290/9 (79)

Pradeep defends a short one just wide of Latham at short leg. Grabs his armpit in pain. Carries on. Odd.

Last ball turned for two. 292/9 (80). New ball due. McCullum not having it.
