NZ vs SL Live Cricket Score, New Zealand in Sri Lanka, 3 ODI Series, 2013 Commentry

That's it from us then. Thanks for joining in. The T20I series starts from 19th November, join us again for that. Until then, good bye and take care.

Tillakaratne Dilshan is the Man of the Series.

Sachithra Senanayake is the Man of the Match.

So New Zealand have failed to win a bilateral ODI series in their last 29 years here. They had a chance this time but couldn't win the series.

!

Handshakes! That's it then, Sri Lanka win the final ODI by 36 runs (D/L method) and level the series! The hosts did well as they came back hard in the third ODI to defeat the Kiwis. They got good starts during their batting and when they came out to bowl too. The rain did come to trouble but in the end, they won the match. Herath was the pick of the bowlers as he grabbed three wickets for 25 runs.

!

The umpires are having some discussion here. The players are asked to walk off and seems New Zealand aren't happy with that decision.
