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.
