Hambantota: Nov 12, 2012
Sri Lanka take on New Zealand in the fifth and final ODI match at Hambantota on Monday.
The hosts earlier registered a comfortable seven-wicket win against New Zealand in in the rain-affected fourth One-Day International at Hambantota on Saturday.
Earlier New Zealand were restricted to 131 for eight. The match started late due to rain. The match was reduced to a 42-over per side affair. As the game progressed, further spells of shower caused interruptions and the game was eventually reduced to 32-overs per side. As a result, the Kiwi innings could never get to a steady position.
Sri Lanka lead the series 3-0.
