Sri Lanka fight to survive Test vs New Zealand

Christchurch: New Zealand had the scent of victory after only the second day of the first Test against Sri Lanka Saturday after a scintillating bowling spell forced the tourists to follow on 303 runs in arrears.

After New Zealand posted 441 in their first innings at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, a four-pronged pace attack led by Trent Boult dismissed Sri Lanka for 138 inside 43 overs.

At stumps on day two, Sri Lanka were 84 without loss in their second innings requiring a further 219 runs to make New Zealand bat again.
