Sri Lanka win series after Jeevan Mendis spell: 4th ODI (Hambantota)

Sri Lanka won the series as leg spinner Jeevan Mendis took a career-best 3-15 to limit the Kiwis to an under par total of 131-8 after the match was reduced to 32 overs because of rain.

Opener Dinesh Chandimal (43), playing his first match of the series and Kumar Sangakkara (42 not out) added 87 for the second wicket to ensure their team's victory with 5 overs to spare to go 3-0 up.

Sri Lanka 131 for 3 (Chandimal 43, Sangakkara 42*) beat New Zealand 131 for 8 (B McCullum 30, Mendis 3-15) (D-L method).
