Rain washes out first day in Galle

Written by  Published by:Pakistan Views Wednesday, 17 June 2015 19:01

Rain washed out the opening day of the Test series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, without a ball bowled or even a coin tossed in Galle. The pitch and outfield remained under covers right through the day, and the umpires officially called off play after an inspection at 1.45pm.

By then, it was clear no play would be possible. Persistent showers had kept both teams in their hotel, and the heavy cloud cover had ensured the groundstaff kept the covers on even during dry intervals.

Play will begin 15 minutes early on the four remaining days, with the middle session extended by another 15 minutes.
