Rain played spoilsport for the second consecutive day as the tri-series cricket match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka, which was re-played on Friday after a washout on Thursday, was called off after the home side batted for 43.4 overs here on Friday.

Put in to bat, Sri Lanka were looking for a big total with Mahela Jayawardene (59) and Chamara Silva (41) taking the home side to 203 for three in 43.4 overs before the heavens opened up at around 5:30pm local time to stop play at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium here.
