Sri Lanka’s innings never took off while chasing a par-total. The Sri Lankan batters made some poor shot choices, which enabled Henry Shipley and Matt Henry to bowl superbly with the new ball. By 10 overs, they were 31-5, and from that point on, there was no turning back.

The only top-order batsman to reach double figures was Angelo Mathews, and Sri Lanka continued to falter until they were eventually bowled out for a pitiful 76. Shipley was the best bowler for New Zealand, claiming 5-31 in 7 overs and recording his first ODI century.

New Zealand finish their innings at 274 as Chamika Karunaratne finishes with four wickets to his name.

Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Nuwanidu Fernando, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis(w), Charith Asalanka, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka(c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Dilshan Madushanka.

New Zealand (Playing XI): Finn Allen, Chad Bowes, Will Young, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham(w/c), Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Blair Tickner.

Lathan did not have the outing he wanted in the test series but would like to compensate for that in the upcoming ODIs. Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka being an white ball specialist missed the test series but would like to win the series as a lead-up to the 2023 ODI World Cup.
