Sri Lanka v England: Third ODI in Hambantota delayed by rain

0

The third one-day international between England and Sri Lanka was delayed by rain after only two overs in Hambantota. After losing the toss, the tourists managed to remove Sri Lanka opener Kusal Perera one ball before the delay. Perera cut Chris Woakes to Eoin Morgan at point to leave the hosts 6-1. England, 2-0 down in the series, made three changes, with Alex Hales, Chris Jordan and Ben Stokes coming in for Ian Bell, James Tredwell and Harry Gurney. If overs are lost, each side would have to bat for a minimum of 20 to constitute a match. If that is not possible, Thursday is scheduled as a reserve day. Play was stopped at 09:11 GMT, with very heavy rain following. Some estimates suggested that as much as two hours would be needed to make the ground fit once the rain stops. -BBC
