The first Twenty20 International between Sri Lanka and New Zealand was on Tuesday called off without a ball being bowled, due to persistent rains at Pallekele.

The second and final match of the T20 series will be played at the same venue — Pallekele International Cricket Stadium — on November 21.

The three-match One-Day International (ODI) series was severely hampered by rains as the second match of the series was washed out. Both the sides had won a game each.

In the ODI series, New Zealand sealed a thrilling win by four wickets in the first game, while the hosts won the third and the final match to draw level.
