New Zealand makes Quiet Impossible to Impossible. As New Zealand started the third day, leading with 308 runs and 8 wickets in hand. Which was quite impossible in Christchurch. But Kiwi batsmen made it impossible. As New Zealand declared in 585 for 4 and Sri Lanka got a target of 660 runs.
As Tom Latham scored 176 runs and Henry Nicholls 162* runs. But Collin de Grandhomme played a stormy inning, scored 71 from 45 balls. That actually put the final nail in the Sri Lankan coffin. New Zealand makes Quiet Impossible to Impossible target.
Christchurch has another 2 days left. As the scorecard of Sri Lankan first inning proves, how dangerous Trent Bolt and Tim Southee can be in this Pace friendly wicket. Maybe it is a matter of time that Sri Lanka is going to taste another loss. If none of the miracles happened.
Trent Boult and Tim Southee picked Karunatne (0) and Gunathilaka (4) at the scoreboard 1 and 9 runs. Captain Chandimal (14) and Kusal Mendis (6) will start batting in the fourth day from 24 for 2.
Finally, we can hope this Asian giant will come back to the game in day four in Christchurch and end the match with a reputable finishing.
