Cricket: Rain again delays Windies-Sri lanka match

(GlobalPost/GlobalPost)

Early-morning rain has delayed the resumption of the fifth match of the Tri-Nation Series between the West Indies and Sri Lanka at Queen's Park Oval on Monday.

Sri Lanka reached 60 for three off 19 overs batting first on the scheduled day of play, Sunday, before torrential and prolonged mid-morning showers forced the abandonment of the rest of the day's play.

Should the match not be completed on the reserve day, both teams will earn two points each for the no-result, so qualifying the West Indies for the final on Thursday and putting the Sri Lankans two points in front of India in second spot ahead of the final preliminary match between the sub-continental neighbours on Tuesday.
