The match could not commence at the schedule time on account of heavy rain that flooded the ground. After hectic efforts put in by the ground staff to turn the ground and the pitch fit for play, it was possible to start the game at 4:30 p.m. local time.

Only 2.4 overs were bowled when the game had to be suspended on account of sudden drizzle. During this period, Atapattu was, however, able to complete his well-cherished double century. The play was called off for the day with Sri Lanka at 467 for 5. Atapattu was batting at 207 while Dharmasena was at the crease with 12 runs.
