Chandana puts Kiwis in a spin
Tour match, Colombo: Sri Lanka A 264; New Zealand 263. Match drawn

Upul Chandana
Chandana took five wickets with his leg-breaks
Sri Lanka's second-string side emerged with a moral victory after bowling the tourists out for one run fewer than they themselves managed on Monday.

With this two-day warm-up match officially a two-innings affair, the match ended in a draw. But Sri Lanka spinner Upul Chandana had a fine day, taking 5-98.

Mark Richardson, who hit the highest score in the Black Caps' only other warm-up match, was again the leading performer with the bat.

The opener collected 93 this time before falling to Chandana's leg-breaks.

By then, five top batsmen had already fallen by the wayside, Jacob Oram's 26 the best effort among a collection of failures.

Wicket-keeper Robbie Hart held together the latter half of the Kiwi innings with a patient unbeaten 34.

But when Russel Arnold took the final wicket by bowling Shane Bond for six, the home team could argue with some justification that they had enjoyed a better day and a better match.

New Zealand's second highest score was extras, with 38, as the Sri Lanka A bowlers produced 15 no balls.
