The One-Day International series between Sri Lanka and the West Indies, scheduled to get underway in Hambantota on 9th December, has been cancelled due to bad weather.

The weather constantly interrupted the three-match Test series and heavy rain played a large part in ensuring the series ended in a 0-0 draw with neither match coming close to producing a positive result.

Five matches were due to be played between 9th and 19th December in Hambantota and Colombo before the tour was to be rounded off with a Twenty20 International in Colombo on 21st December.

"The ongoing West Indies tour...has been postponed to late January 2011 due to inclement weather conditions that has prevailed in the country lately," a statement from Sri Lanka Cricket read.

"The above decision was taken with the mutual understanding of both cricket boards and our television partners."
