New Zealand's campaign in the ICC World T20 ended at the same venue when they lost all their three Super Eights matches, including two in the tie-break 'super over'.
Ross Taylor's team tied their matches against the West Indies and runners-up Sri Lanka before their losses in the one-over eliminator.
Sri Lanka also made a few changes as all-rounder Angelo Mathews was named the new T20 captain in place of Mahela Jayawardene, who stepped down after his team's defeat against the West Indies in the World Twenty20 final in Colombo earlier this month.
Jayawardene has been rested for the T20 game along with paceman Lasith Malinga, but will return to lead the side in the one-dayers.
