Sri Lanka will eye a whitewash as they take on the touring New Zealand team in the second and final match of the test series at the P. Sara Oval in Colombo tomorrow (Aug 22).

The home team has already gained the upper-hand in the tour after a solid opening partnership in the fourth innings of the first Test saw them through to a six-wicket win in Galle last week.

Tomorrow's game would be Sri Lanka's second match of the ICC Test Championship in which it has topped the list with 60 points after the first match victory.

Both teams engaged in practice sessions this week in the run-up to the second game.
