England Frustrated By Conditions

England Frustrated By Conditions

England have been left frustrated after their second warm-up match for the ODI series with Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain. The tourists were due to be facing a Sri Lanka Cricket XI as they gear up for the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka next week.

However, heavy rain overnight and into the morning left huge pools of water on the outfield and officials had to call the match off at 07:30 BST.

England saw their first warm-up game also affected by the weather as they won by 43 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.

All-rounder Chris Woakes admitted the lack of action makes it tough to adapt to the conditions but insists they will “crack on”.

Woakes said: “Adapting to conditions here is quite tricky and the more time you can spend out there, the better you’ll be for it.

“If they’d have played a weakened side, time in the middle would’ve still been better than not having it – some of the guys might be a little bit frustrated but we’ll crack on.”
