Royal London One-Day International
Sri Lanka 248-9, England 16-1 - match abandoned
England were denied by the weather in Sunday’s third Royal London One-Day International against Sri Lanka at Bristol’s Brightside Ground.
The hosts put in a stellar bowling display to restrict Sri Lanka to just 248-9 from their 50 overs, before persistent rain prevented them from completing the run chase.
After numerous interruptions, the match was eventually abandoned with England 16-1.
Earlier, Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett each plundered three wickets, while Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis made half centuries.
