Rain ruins decider

Hamilton: Sanath Jayasuriya became the most capped player in the history of limited-overs cricket on Tuesday although the fifth and final one-day match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka was abandoned because of rain.

The 37-year-old Sri Lankan opener was credited with his 375th one-day appearance despite the abandonment, moving clear of India's Sachin Tendulkar with whom he was previously tied.

New Zealand umpire Billy Bowden was also deemed to have officiated in his 100th ODI, becoming the eighth umpire in cricket history to do so.

He joins David Shepherd and Dave Orchard of England, Rudi Koertzen of South Africa, Steve Bucknor of the West Indies, Australians Daryl Harper and Darrell Hair and fellow New Zealander Steve Dunne.

The abandonment of the match left the series tied 2-2 and increased a deadlock between the teams in three series this season.

Their two-Test series was tied 1-1 and a two-match Twenty20 series was also shared. — AP
