Rain halts play after Lakmal triple-strike
Sri Lanka chose to bowl in the first ODI against West Indies, likely owing to a preference to chase in rain-affected games that may be subject to Duckworth-Lewis calculations.
Rain delayed the start time by 80 minutes, but a full 50-overs-a-side match would nevertheless be played.
Two players debut for Sri Lanka.
Left-hand batsman and offspin bowler Shehan Jayasuriya would play his first ODI, after having played a T20 international in August.
Danushka Gunathilaka - an opening batsman by trade - would play his first international in any format.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Chandimal was suspended for this match for his part in an on-field altercation during the India Test series in August, and Kusal Perera would take the gloves in his stead.
West Indies were 40 runs for the loss of 3 wickets when play was stopped due to showers.
