Kusal Perera and Tillakaratne Dilshan struck 96 rapid runs together, as Sri Lanka comfortably hunted down New Zealand's modest 142 for 7 to take the series 1-0.

Both hit half-centuries, and while Kusal's was the more aggressive, and more attractive, Dilshan again sharpen his increasing appetite to bring chases home.

He was unbeaten on 59 off 49 balls - his seventh international fifty in eight innings - after Kusal had struck 57 from 37.

Sri Lanka's eight-wicket win was an apt reflection of their dominance over a severely depleted New Zealand side, and the hosts protect their Number 1 ranking as well.
