Heavy rainfall at Dambulla halted proceedings in the first ODI between Sri Lanka and England with only 15 overs of play possible so far. With no respite in sight after several hours, the match was ultimately called off without any result.
Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal won the toss and elected to field first on an overcast day. England openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy started well with the bat and added 49 runs between themselves in no time before Nuwan Pradeep dismissed the former.
Roy departed soon after with Sri Lanka’s Akila Dananjaya getting his name into the wicket-column. Joe Root and skipper Eoin Morgan had started to stitch together a promising stand between themselves before inclement weather took a toll on proceedings. England were batting at 92-2 when rain halted play.
