T20 washout at Pallekele

The opening Twenty20 international between Sri Lanka and New Zealand at Pallekele was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Originally set for a 7pm start, umpires Raveendra Wimalasiri and Ruchira Palliyaguruge called the match off at 8.45pm once all hope of a shortened fixture had receded.

The two-match series will now come down to a winner-takes-all showdown at the same venue on Thursday, after the two countries tied a three-match one-day international rubber 1-1.
