Rain stops play in india-sri lanka asia cup contest0

In the Asia Cup Super Four match between Sri Lanka and India, which was being played in Colombo on Tuesday, the spin-charge that was being led by Dunith Wellalage was halted due to rain.

Both teams are now in preparation for the One-Day International World Cup, which will be held in India next month. After batting first, India had scored 197-9 after 47 overs.

Both Axar Patel, who was on 15 at the time, and number 11 Mohammed Siraj, who was on two, were doing their best to make it through their full quota of 50 overs.

Wellalage, who spins the ball with his left arm, achieved his first ever five-wicket haul and finished his 10 overs with the figures 5-40. Charith Asalanka, an off-spinner, has collected four wickets so far.
