SL-NZ final ODI washed out

Rain robbed New Zealand's best chance of sneaking in a win in a one-sided series, after they restricted Sri Lanka to 123 for 8 in the fifth and final one-day international in Hambantota on Monday.

The match began under sunny skies, but little over two hours after the start, rain forced the players off the field and they remained indoors till half past eight, when another downpour brought a soggy end to an ill-timed series. All six matches on tour were affected by rain, with Sri Lanka taking the one-dayers 3-0.

While Sri Lanka were the superior side from the context of the series, New Zealand would have every reason to feel let down by the weather in this game.
