Washout At Wantage Road
Sri Lankans 558-8 dec. (Thirimanne 156) v
Northamptonshire 146-5 (Levi 64)
Tour game, Northampton, day three
There was no play possible on day three of the tour game between Northamptonshire and the Sri Lankans due to the rain sweeping across England and Wales hitting the East Midlands.
Under grey skies, the Wantage Road ground in Northampton was lashed with rain and as a result, the umpires made an early decision to abandon play on the day.
Sri Lanka declared on day two on 558 for eight and Northamptonshire closed on 146 for five in reply.
Kaushal Silva (152), Lahiru Thirimanne (156) and Dilruwan Perera (59) were in the runs during Sri Lanka's innings before Dhammika Prasad took a brace of wickets.
The game is Sri Lanka's only first-class warm-up game prior to the first Test against England at Lord's beginning on 12th June.
