The Black Caps do not have the services of the world's most successful test bowler during their rain-affected tour of Sri Lanka.

Before the side left, coach Mike Hesson said they were negotiating with Muttiah Muralitharan about lending his ample knowledge to the side, but a spokesperson in Sri Lanka simply said negotiations had not worked out.

Newly appointed bowling coach Shane Bond is there and former Sri Lankan left armer Chaminda Vaas has worked with the side since they landed last week.
