Four run-outs have taken the gloss off a stellar century from captain Brendon McCullum in the second One Day Cricket Interntional against Sri Lanka in Hamilton.
After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, the Black Caps made 248 in their 50 overs but it should have been more after opener McCullum made 117 off 99 balls.
Fellow opener Martin Guptill got out for 10 in the 7th over, while Tom Latham was removed for 5 in the 13th.
Once McCullum got out in the 31st over the wickets started to tumble at regular intervals.
Daniel Vettori, who normally bats further down the order, came in at number five but only survived a couple of overs after getting run out for 7.
Ross Taylor was the next to go after making 34.
The next three wickets, Luke Ronchi, Corey Anderson, and Nathan McCullum, were all run-outs.
Adam Milne was stumped for 19 in the 48th over.
Some late hitting from Trent Boult helped New Zealand's cause, he smashed two sixes in the final over, but was caught off the last ball going for another.
Matt Henry finished with 20.
Sri Lanka will start their run-chase soon.
