Sri Lanka have struck early, in the very first over in fact. Finn Allen has been done in by the crafty Maheesh Theekshana’s incoming delivery which skids on and hits the stumps. The Kiwis are 2/1 in 0.4 overs.
Earlier, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat. Dasun Shanaka, the Sri Lankan captain, said he would’ve done the same. Both teams have made one change each. Daryl Mitchell replaced Mark Chapman for New Zealand, while Kasun Rajitha came in for Binura Fernando.
