Matt Henry has bagged five wickets to help the Black Caps wrap up their final ODI match against Sri Lanka by 36 runs in Mt Maunganui.

Chasing 294 to win, Sri Lanka were troubled early, falling to 3-33 after strikes from Henry and Trent Boult. 

Fifties to Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal got them back on track, but Henry returned to put the match beyond doubt. 

Earlier in the day, Martin Guptill continued his run of form with another century, whacking 102 off 109 balls. 

Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor chipped in, both scoring 61. 

The win means the Black Caps wrap up the series 3-1.
