Rain forces first T20 between Sri-Lanka and New Zealand to be abandonedZeenews Sports Bureau


Kandy: The first and the only T20 international slated to be played in New Zealand’s tour of Sri-Lanka had to be abandoned due to rain.

The match had been reduced to a 14 over a side due to a 70-minute rain interruption. Put into bat by the hosts the New Zealand innings never got going until Tim Southee hit a few lusty blows to take the tourists to 74/7 in their quota of 14 overs.

The match had to be called off just 2 overs into the Sri-Lankan chase due to heavy rain.

The two teams will now play 5 ODI matches beginning on November 1st.
