From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 27 August 2019

New Zealand has pulled off an upset overnight, scoring an impressive victory over Sri Lanka in the second and final cricket test in Colombo.

Constant stoppages for bad weather suggested a draw would be the most likely result, but the Black Caps bowlers managed to skittle Sri Lanka for just 122 to win by an innings and 65 runs.

It means two-Test series is shared - with New Zealand joining India and Sri Lanka at the top of the World Test Championship ladder.
