Sri Lanka spinner Akila Dananjaya took a five-for for the fourth time in six Checks just for Ross Taylor to supply some New Zealand resistance on the opening day of a rain-affected first Check in Galle.

New Zealand, again in motion for the primary time since their thrilling Tremendous Over loss to England within the Cricket World Cup ultimate a month in the past, received the toss and seemed snug on 64 with out loss.

Nonetheless, Tom Latham (30), Kane Williamson (0) and Jeet Raval (33) all fell in fast succession as Dananjaya spun his spell, the 25-year-old then returning earlier than tea to account for Henry Nicholls (42) and BJ Watling (1).

Ross Taylor had moved on to an unbeaten 86 by the point a torrential downpour 7.Four overs into the ultimate session ended the day’s play prematurely with New Zealand 203-5.

Dananjaya made the breakthrough when Latham dangled his bat out and nicked behind and he had the prized wicket of Williamson three balls later, the New Zealand captain meekly chipping straight to quick midwicket.

The touring aspect had been three down when Raval gave Dhananjaya de Silva a low catch at slip, however Taylor and Nicholls placed on a 100-run stand to wrest the initiative again.

It was Dananjaya who broke that partnership by trapping Nicholls lbw, a choice which he frivolously appealed, and Watling went two overs later as he was pinned straight in entrance when trying a wild swipe.

The fifth wicket heralded tea and the ultimate session of the day proved transient because of an almighty bathe, with Mitchell Santner (eight not out) because of return on day two alongside Taylor.
