Close The weather gets England off the hook and allows them to escape with a draw that they really don't deserve despite Alastair Cook's plucky hundred. They have been outplayed in Galle from the off and have been second best throughout the series, so the 1-0 win to Sri Lanka is fair. That sees them rise to third in the ICC rankings while England slide from second to fifth.
That's it from Will Luke, Martin Williamson, Andrew McGlashan and Jenny Thompson, as well as our man on the spot, Andrew Miller. Thanks for being with us and for the thousands of you who have taken time to email. Have a good Christmas and all the best for 2008.
3.45pm The groundsman, Warnaweera, has just given the shake of the head to the Sky box. It's all over.
3.35pm Massive puddles on the outfield. The groundstaff are sliding around on the covers and have left a few areas exposed. If we do get any more play, it won't be for an hour or so at the earliest.
"The outfield is flooded," says Andrew Miller. "There is no way they will get back out there. The tap has now been turned off, but the pools are calf-deep."
3.30pm And it's chucking it down now, you can barely see the fort and this will be a long delay and might even be it. But the weather has a habit of changing more often than Kylie in concert. There's already water on the covers and the groundstaff are battling against the wind and rain to drag on the remaining tarpaulins ... it's an almost futile exercise and they've actually given up.
3.20pm And they're off, here come the groundsman who sprint on with the tarpaulins. Yes, it's certainly raining now and the clouds are dark and nasty. At the moment they just threaten but if they unload then we will have a lengthy stoppage.
A great spot from Jon in Switzerland. Ryan Sidebottom (253) has now faced more balls in this series than Kevin Pietersen (250). Ravi Bopara has managed only 73.
Yes, it's officially raining. That's definitely more than a mere "spit". We'll be going off shortly
We have spitting rain again, folks.
Never fear, Sidebottom is here
Fine innings - but is it enough? He looks dejected as he walks off, head bowed while raising his bat
Phew. It's all kicking off
There's the dog!
