The fourth match of the Tri-Series between Sri Lanka and New Zealand was washed out even on the reserve day to leave both sides sharing two points each. The only difference on the reserve day being 43.4 overs of action with Sri Lanka cruising through at 203 for 3 just when the heavens had opened up.
The Kiwis won the toss yet again and this time keeping the inclement weather in mind, decided to chase a target. Sri Lanka got to a flier from Tillakaratne Dilshan who struck five fours in a row off Kyle Mills but failed to kick on to make a big score. He fell for 44 from 52 balls. Like Dilshan, Skipper Sangakkara too couldn’t get a big score despite a start and he made 40.
Just when rain halted play around evening time, there was a smooth partnership in progress between Mahela Jayawardene (59* from 72 bals) and comeback man Chamara Silva (41* from 57 balls).
