Rain delays day 5 of Eng v SL

2011-05-30 12:39

Cardiff - Rain delayed the scheduled start of the fifth day's play in the first Test between England and Sri Lanka at Sophia Gardens here on Monday as the series opener headed for a draw.

Play had been due to resume at 12:00 (SA time) but the latest downpour in this rain-marred match meant the square was fully covered with little prospect of the fixture starting any time soon.

England were 491 for five in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings 400, a lead of 91 runs.

Ian Bell was 98 not out and Eoin Morgan unbeaten on 14 after Jonathan Trott had made 203 and Alastair Cook 133 on Sunday.

This match is the first of a three-Test series, with the second Test at Lord's due to start on Friday.
