    Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne once again proved the stumbling block for New Zealand as he held his team’s innings together with a workmanlike knock of 49 not out on a rain-hit opening day of the second and final cricket Test played at the P Sara Oval yesterday. Sri Lanka lost the wickets of Lahiru Thirimanne for two and Kusal Mendis for 32 as they closed the first day hit by bad light and rain on 85 for two wickets. Batting with Karunaratne who has so far hit six fours off the 100 balls he’s faced is former captain Angelo Mathews on nought not out.
