Suspicious SL collapse as Williamson has NZ on top: 2nd Test, Day 3 (Hamilton)

Ian Smith commentating on TV called it "bizarre" to describe a surreal period of play just before and after lunch.

Sri Lanka went from 71-0 to be all out for 133 in a mere 13 overs as their batsmen played a series of rash shots rasing the spectre of spot fixing. In reply, Kane Williamson (78 not out) had New Zealand in command with the hosts needing only another 47 runs to seal a 2-0 series win.

New Zealand 237 (Guptill 50, Chameera 5-47) and 142 for 5 (Williamson 78*, Chameera 4-45) need another 47 runs to beat Sri Lanka 292 (Mathews 77, Siriwardana 62, Southee 3-63) and 133 (Mendis 46, Southee 4-26, Wagner 3-40).
