Ireland v Sri Lanka - match abandoned, rain
Second One-Day International, Dublin

The second and final One-Day International between Ireland and Sri Lanka has been abandoned without a ball being bowled at Clontarf Cricket Club, Dublin.

Although a full game was possible two days ago at the same venue, which Sri Lanka won by 79 runs, there was little chance of any play today.

Persistent rain meant that after an inspection some four hours after the scheduled start time, the umpires called the game off.

Sri Lanka therefore win the RSA ODI series 1-0 and Ireland were denied the chance to take on the Twenty20 world champions for a second time.

Sri Lanka will now head to England where they will play a Twenty20 International, five ODIs and two Tests between 20th May and 24th June.
