Commentary (Sri Lanka innings)

That's it from all of us here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the first Test between Sri Lanka and New Zealand starting on November 17th. Till then, good bye and take care.

BJ Watling has been named the Player of the Series for his consistent efforts with the bat throughout the series.

I am afraid the rains have played spoil sport again and the match has been abandoned. The Lankans started off well with the ball and looked in total control reducing the Kiwis to 123/8 before rains interrupted play in the 29th over. As a result of this washout, Sri Lanka have won the five-match ODI series 3-0.

Well, it has started drizzling again and the covers are back on. It seems very unlikely that we'll have a match on our hands.

Roshan Abeysinghe tweets "Inspection at 8.30."

Roshan Abeysinghe tweeted a few minutes back " Its good news. After almost 1 1/2 hours heavy rain we have a breather! But there is plenty of water on the covers and outside."
