S Lanka beat New Zealand in rain-hit ODI

PALLEKELE: Sri Lanka scored a 14-run win over New Zealand by Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method in the rain-hit second one-day international on Sunday to gain a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Sri Lanka were 118-3 off 22.5 overs chasing a 251-run target when play was called off due to rain in Pallekele. They were ahead of the D/L par score of 104 at that stage.

The opening one-dayer was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain at the same venue on Thursday.
