Canberra: Sri Lanka's warmup match ahead of its tri-series limited-overs tournament with Australia and India has been rained out.
Sri Lanka was to have played a Prime Minister's XI invitational team captained by Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, who has been dropped from the national team for the start of the tri-series.
But persistent rain on Friday at Manuka Oval from the scheduled start time forced officials to call the match off four hours later.
Sri Lanka plays its first tri-series match on Wednesday against India in Perth. The series opens on Sunday when Australia plays India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
