Sri Lanka Practice Game Washed Out
Prime Ministerâ€™s XI v
Sri Lankans â€“ Match Abandoned
Tour Match, Canberra
Sri Lankaâ€™s only practice match ahead of their opening Commonwealth Bank Series fixture against India on Wednesday was abandoned without a ball bowled due to rain at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.
Brad Haddin was due to lead the Prime Ministerâ€™s XI, with Mahela Jayawardene set to begin his second, rather reluctant, stint at the helm of Sri Lanka, but unfortunately the weather meant that not even a toss was possible.
The Prime Ministerâ€™s XI squad included Australian fringe limited-overs players Mitchell Marsh, Nathan Lyon, Ben Cutting, Peter Forrest and Adam Voges who will all have been disappointed with the washout.
