Sri Lanka 188 all out in 1st ODI vs. New Zealand

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) -- Sri Lanka's Milinda Siriwardana made 66 and Nuwan Kulaserara 58 in a 98-run partnership which helped Sri Lanka recover from 27-5 to 188 as it batted first on Saturday in the first one-day international against New Zealand.

Matt Henry took four wickets for 17 runs in a superb opening spell, crashing through the Sri Lanka top order after the tourists won the toss on a pitch captain Angelo Mathews called "a belter."

After Adam Milne dismissed Danushka Gunathilaka (8) in the third over, Henry took charge and removed Tillakaratne Dilshan (9), Lahiru Thirimanne (1), Dinesh Chandimal (5) and Mathews for a first ball duck. He finished with 4-49
