Sri Lanka Blind had just gotten off to a solid start in their game against South Africa at the Guru Nanak College Ground in Chennai when rain forced the World Cup match to be abandoned.
Wet conditions initially truncated the game to 32 overs per side, and Sri Lanka, put in to bat, started their innings nicely enough. RMUD Lakshan was run out by Rory Field for 20 after a 64-run first-wicket partnership with RPS Rajapakshe.
Merely four balls later, however, the rain really started to come down, and with only 13.3 overs bowled, the match was called off after further inspections during the day. Each team picks up two points from this abandoned game.
