Bad weather forced the first one-day international between New Zealand and Sri Lanka to be abandoned in Hambantota on Sunday.

New Zealand were 13-1 from 4.2 overs in reply to Sri Lanka's 288-9 when heavy rain lashed the southern port city and wiped out the rest of the match.

The second of the three one-dayers is also scheduled to be played at the same venue on Tuesday.
