Sri Lanka handed New Zealand a crushing 10-wicket defeat inside three days on Monday to claim the opener of their two-match Test series and consign the visitors to a fifth successive Test loss for the first time in 57 years.

Resuming at 35 for one in their second innings, the Black Caps were skittled out for just 118, including the loss of seven wickets for 61 runs in the morning session.

Spinner Rangana Herath was once again the wrecker-in-chief, securing the man-of-the-match award by taking 6-43 to follow up on his first innings haul of 5-65. The home side was left requiring just 93 to win and Thranaga Paranavitana (31 n.o.) and debutant Dimuth Karunaratne (60 n.o.) knocked off the runs before the tea break. Herath now has 46 wickets from 7 Tests, one more than Graeme Swann.
