End of innings - New Zealand 371 for 7

Martin Guptill's fourth ODI ton, half-centuries from Williamson and Taylor and a 13-ball 47 from Jimmy Neesham has helped New Zealand post a massive score as Sri Lanka struggled in good batting conditions.

Guptill had last played an ODI in March last year against England at home before New Zealand cricket went into hibernation. When it was time to hit the park again, in the tour to UAE against Pakistan, he was sidelined due to a calf injury.

 Returning to the side after a long lay-off, the opener had acknowledged he felt rusty entering the series but was quick to point out he's prepared. Given the opportunity to make first use of good batting conditions, he walked out and slammed 138 off 139 to reestablish the fact that he's the one who will be opener in the 2019 World Cup for New Zealand.
