A belligerent rearguard hundred from Doug Bracewell was not enough to prevent a Sri Lanka A victory on the final day in Dambulla, as the hosts spinners secured the series with a 168-run win.

Chasing 440 for victory, New Zealand A could not manage a meaningful partnership until the last pair were at the crease, and were eventually bowled out for 271 inside 57 overs.

The first four-day match of the two-game series had been drawn.

Left-arm spin bowler Malinda Pushpakumara was the best of Sri Lanka As spinners, taking 4 for 60, to go with his 3 for 86 in the first innings.
