For the second time in eight days, a rare Scotland home ODI against a Full Member was affected by rain as the series opener against Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball bowled.

After waiting through close to five hours of on and off drizzle, umpire Gregory Brathwaite called both captains together to deliver the news, turning Tuesday's second ODI into a series decider.

It was a dent in Sri Lanka's World Cup preparation, leaving the second ODI as their only official action before their World Cup opener against New Zealand on June 1.
