Sri Lanka-Zimbabwe ODI Delayed Due to Rain

Bulawayo: Persistent rain over Queens Sports Club on Tuesday has delayed the start of play in the scheduled tri-nations match between Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.

Play was due to commence at 9am local time (8am GMT) but this is not possible, umpire Russell Tiffin said.

"We plan to inspect at 12.30 and if we cannot start then we will have to abandon, he said."

Groundsman Douglas Higgins said the outfield is holding up and would be playable if the rain did not continue for long.

Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka will get two points each if the match has to be abandoned, which will put the home team on top of the table with six points and Sri Lanka bottom with two. The Sri Lankans lost to India on Sunday.

India have won one and lost one, giving them four points.

If the match is abandoned the series will continue in Harare on Thursday.
