Rain again ends Sri Lanka-NZ ODI, abandoned this time

7:02 am on 21 August 2010

Rain has had the final say in the one-day cricket tri-series match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand which ended in a no-result with both teams sharing the points at Dambulla.

The match had been rescheduled for Friday after Thursday's complete washout when not a ball was bowled.

Sri Lanka, invited to bat first, reached 203 for three wickets off 43 overs and four balls before rain stopped play and forced the abandonment of the match.

The series continues on Sunday when Sri Lanka play India.
