THE Sri Lankan off-spinner, Jayananda Warnaweera, took 4 for 24 as New Zealand collapsed dramatically during the final session on the second day of the second Test in Colombo yesterday.

After John Wright and Blair Hartland had put on 57 for the first wicket, New Zealand closed on 100 for 7 and need a further 95 runs to avoid the follow-on.

Warnaweera, accused of throwing by the New Zealand captain, Martin Crowe, during the first Test, was ably supported by his fellow off-spinner, Muttiah Muralitharan, who took 2 for 21 and also ran out Chris Harris.

Earlier, Sri Lanka took their first innings to 394 all out with Hashan Tillekeratne making 93, his highest Test score.
