Ireland coach Phil Simmons believes the expected chilly Dublin conditions could aid his team in today's opening one-day contest against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews acknowledged that the visitors were finding the temperatures "too cold" as they trained at Clontarf.

The temperatures are not expected to edge about 13 degrees Celsius in Dublin while rain interruptions also appear highly likely.

For his part, the Sri Lankan captain acknowledged that the Clontarf pitch looked "a bit slow and wet" but Mathews remains confident that his somewhat inexperienced side will be motivated to perform well with the series against England coming up later in the month.
