The Premier League Limited Overs match between Bloomfield Cricket and Athletic Club and Burgher Recreation Club had to be abandoned after heavy rain in Colombo today.

The start of the match had been delayed due to rain the previous night and the umpires had reduced the match to 33 overs per side. However, the delayed start meant that there was only time for seven of the second innings overs. At that stage BRC were 42 for 2 chasing 155 for victory. They were up with the run rate but had just lost both their openers and had two new batsmen at the wicket.

BRC had won the toss and elected to field first. They were rewarded with the wicket of Sanath Jayasurya (5) early on. Bloomfield lost wickets regularly but Thillerkeratne Dilshan with 30 from 43 balls and and Suresh Perera with 41 from 44 ensured their side a competitive target.
