Scorecard

In a match frustrated by the weather, New Zealand A were unable to enforce a victory on the final day of their game against Sri Lanka A at Colombo - despite Chris Martin bowling them into an excellent position yesterday. Martin, who has bowled impressively throughout the tour, took 5 for 41 in Sri Lanka's first innings; only Thilina Kandamby (44) offered much resistance as the home side were dismissed for 165. New Zealand didn't fair much better in their reply, stumbling to 197 all out. Peter Fulton, who played for the senior team against Bangladesh in a one-day match in 2004, struck a captain's knock of 72 - but received little support from his team-mates. Sri Lanka lost 5 for 67 in their second innings, before Jeevan Mendis steadied the ship with an unbeaten 58 as the match petered out to a draw.
