The second session looked even in performances for both teams as New Zealand were able to add 100 runs odd in the session while Sri Lanka was able to get few wickets and at the end of session score board showed 175 for 8..
Looking at the overall match we can say Sri Lanka still are on top of the game as pitch seems like it has become more helpful for batsmen and look like it is easing up a bit with some of the shots played by New Zealand tail enders.
But Sri Lanka could have get all the wickets of New Zealand for even less than 100 or 120 odd but they could not stop the flow of runs and it swung the momentum back to New Zealand.
But few wickets at end helped Lankans to get the momentum which they lost by giving free runs.
Average score here in 1 st inning is 308 and from here New Zealand should look at a score around 250 to stay alive in the game .
In Sri Lanka's point of view they should try to take other 2 wickets quickly as possible as they can minimize the score as much as possible in this seamer friendly pitch.
