England v India - no result, rain
First One-Day International, Bristol

The first One-Day International between England and India in Bristol has been abandoned without a ball being bowled due to persistent heavy rain.

The weather forecast ahead of the match was appalling, and little, if any play was anticipated, and rain throughout the day eventually prevailed.

The match was finally abandoned at 13:40 local time (12:40 GMT).

The two sides will now head to Cardiff, where the weather forecast is better for the second game in the five-match series, on Wednesday (27th August).

England were set to hand Alex Hales his ODI debut, opening the batting alongside Alastair Cook while India, who have three uncapped players - Dhawal Kulkarni, Sanju Samson and Karn Sharma - had not revealed their line-up.
