    In Pics: Sri Lanka vs New Zealand, 3rd ODI

    • Rain played hide and seek for most part of the NZ innings forcing the match to be reduced to 33 overs per side. The game had to be halted twice for over an hour. (AP Photos)

    • Chasing 197 (D/L) to win, Sri Lanka were off to a brisk start but lost Upul Tharanga early for just 10 runs but Tilakaratne Dilshan held one end tight leading the run chase even as his senior counterparts failed to get going. (AP Photos)

    • Angelo Mathews and Dilshan stitched together a match winning partnership of 127 runs in 16.2 overs to help Sri Lanka take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the 5-match series. (AP Photos)

    • New Zealand struggled to score runs with the rain delays, but their most consistent player in 2012 came to the rescue as BJ Watling launched an all out assault in the final overs to help the visitors post 188/6 in 33 overs. Watling remained unbeaten on 96 in 88 balls. (AP Photos)

    • Spinner Jeevan Mendis was the pick of the bowlers getting two wickets and finishing with figures of 5-0-34-2. Mendis scalped the wickets of big hitting Jacob Oram and Kane Williamson. (AP Photos)

    • Dilshan was in top form as he anchored the chase of 197 (D/L) on a tricky wicket from start to finish completing his 14th ODI hundred in the process. The opener scored an unbeaten 102 runs in 95 balls. (AP Photos)
