Boult takes 6 as Sri Lanka collapses for 104

Trent Boult broke a personal wicket drought in spectacular fashion Wednesday, taking six wickets for four runs in the space of 15 balls as New Zealand bowled out Sri Lanka for 104 on the second day of the second cricket test.Boult, who has 224 wickets in 58 tests, began the day with 0-20 in Sri Lanka’s first innings after also struggling for form in the first test at Wellington where he took 2-145.Suddenly the dry spell of wickets turned into a flood and Boult went from 0-26 to 6-30 — his best bowling figures, narrowly missing a hat trick.After resuming at 88-4 in reply to New Zealand’s 178, Sri Lanka was all out for 104 in the space of nine overs, giving New Zealand a 74-run lead. By lunch New Zealand was 36-0 — an overall lead of 100 — with Jeet Raval 23 and Tom Latham 11.
