New Zealand, Sri Lanka Denied By Rain
New Zealand 145-3 (Guptill 66no) v
Sri Lanka - no result - rain
Third One-Day International, Auckland
New Zealand had reached 145 for three when play was called off.
Mathews ended with figures of three for 21 having also removed Brendon McCullum (28 in 22 balls) and Tom Latham (42 in 65 balls).
McCullum was caught in the deep by Nuwan Kulasekara, Latham was bowled as he chopped on and Taylor was trapped in front by a ball that nipped in.
He reviewed the decision and after the on-field call was upheld, he, Guptill and the Sri Lankan players left the field as the rain closed in.
The series remains tied at 1-1 with four games now remaining, the next of which is on Monday 19th January.
