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.
