Day 1 report: Dimuth Karunaratne was closing in on his half-century when Sri Lanka reached stumps at 85-2 on a rain-hit opening day of the second and final test against New Zealand at P. Sara Oval on Thursday.
Only 36.3 overs were possible after early rain and a wet outfield caused a delayed start and bad light resulted in an early finish.
After winning the toss, Karunaratne was unbeaten on 49 and in the middle with Angelo Mathews (0).
Kusal Mendis was out for 32 after tea, caught by wicketkeeper BJ Watling off the seam of allrounder Colin de Grandhomme.
Lahiru Thirimanne fell early in the innings when he was caught by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson off spinner William Somerville for 2.
De Grandhomme had bowling figures of 1-14 off 8.3 overs, while Somerville had 1-20.
Sri Lanka won the first test by six wickets in Galle.
The Black Caps called up De Grandhomme and left out Mitchell Santner, one of the team's three spinners to play in Galle.
Sri Lanka replaced Akila Dananjaya, who has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action, with another spin bowler, Dilruwan Perera.
Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Embuldeniya, Lahiru Kumara

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie had raised concerns that border controls preventing his squad training together while undergoing two weeks' quarantine would leave them under-prepared for a clash against the All Blacks.
New Zealand last week lost hosting rights for the November-December Rugby Championship to Australia because its strict border controls would have hampered player training.
A PCB source said that the Board is planning to send around 40 to 45 players to New Zealand from late November.
