The first ODI of the five-match series was washed last Sunday after Sri Lanka set a 289-run target against the Kiwis at the same venue.
The Kiwis lost one wicket in form of Anton Devcich, who was cleaned up by Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga on the sixth ball of the opening over.
Tom Latham was batting on four, accompanied by Rob Nicol on one when rain interripted the match. New Zealand need a further 276 runs to win from 45.4 overs with nine wickets in hand.
New Zealand skipper Kyle Mills won the toss and elected to field. The decision seemed to work immediately as Mills trapped Dimuth Karunaratne in front of the stumps in the very first ball of the match.
Sri Lanka: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Sachithra Senanayake, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath.
New Zealand: Tom Latham, Anton Devcich, Rob Nicol, Grant Elliott, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi (wk), Jimmy Neesham, Nathan McCullum, Andrew Ellis, Kyle Mills (c), Adam Milne.
