Rain wipes out one-dayer

Monday's one-day international between Ireland and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled because of rain in Edinburgh.

The match, part of a tri-nation tournament also involving Scotland, was called off shortly before 3pm because of persistent rain at the Grange.

Scotland are due to face Ireland at the same venue on Tuesday, before taking on Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

Cricket Scotland reported that prospects of play on Tuesday were "much better" amid the hope that the saturated ground will dry out.
