Summary

The first match of the 5 match ODI series between Sri Lanka vs England was cancelled due to wet outfield. England were batting first and scored 92 for loss of two wickets in 15 overs. The rain gods have not been kind with the English side in these series. There has been critisism in some sections due to the timing of the series as there are rains normally in the island nation during this season.
