A result looks unlikely in the first cricket test between New Zealand and Sri Lanka at the Basin Reserve due to rain in the capital.

Although play has been confirmed to start at 12.30pm after a drizzly morning, rain is forecast to hit Wellington again in the early afternoon.

If it stays away for long enough, the players will be able to complete 83 overs, with the first session set to go from 12.30-1.30, followed by sessions from 2.10-4.40 and 5-7.

Sri Lanka are at 259-3 in their second innings after batting through day four without losing a wicket - the first time that has happened on New Zealand shores.
