Ross Taylor posted his 20th one-day international century and Henry Nicholls scored his first as New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by 115 runs to sweep the ODI series 3-nil.

Taylor made 137 and Nicholls 124 not out as New Zealand reached 364-4 batting first, highlighting the growing depth of its batting as it works towards the World Cup in England.

Sri Lanka was all out for 249 in 41.4 overs in reply, threatening New Zealand's total briefly — especially when Thisara Perera’s 80 was at the crease — before again falling short.

Lockie Ferguson took 4 for 40 and leg-spinner Ish Sodhi snared 3 for 40 in the best performance by a New Zealand bowling unit which has been under pressure at times in the series.
