Sri Lanka cancels rain-hit cricket series against India
8/21/2006
 

          COLOMBO, Aug 20 (AP): The Sri Lankan cricket board Sunday decided to call off the rain-hit, three-match cricket series against India after the first two limited-overs internationals were washed out.
"It's been very frustrating, the weather's not relenting and it's proving terribly expensive for us despite no cricket being played," a Sri Lanka Cricket official said on condition of anonymity as a formal announcement was to be made later Sunday night.
He said discussions had been held with the Indian cricket board with a view to rescheduling the series, but the Sri Lankan board would soon make an announcement that the series is canceled. "There was no point persisting with the teams going to the stadium every day and coming back to the hotel without a ball being delivered," the official said.
The wet weather has also been frustrating for the cricketers and fans, who have just seen 22 deliveries bowled in a week, despite the provision of a reserve day for each match.
Ground staff worked hard to make a game possible, but persistent monsoon showers rendered their efforts futile.
