England and Sri Lanka were thwarted in the third one-day international at Bristol as rain allowed just four overs of the hosts' run chase.
Sri Lanka made 248 for 9 after half-centuries from Kusal Mendis , Dinesh Chandimal and captain Angelo Mathews, as Liam Plunkett took 3 for 46.
Rain delayed the start of the run chase and England were 16 for 1 as the weather forced the abandonment.
England lead the five-match series 1-0.
Alex Hales, who scored 133 not out in the second ODI, was out for a golden duck to the third ball of the run chase, leaving fellow opener Jason Roy and Joe Root at the crease when play ended.
