Dublin - The second one-day international between Ireland and Sri Lanka in Dublin on Thursday was abandoned without a ball bowled due to rain.

It had rained heavily overnight and further rain in the morning also left damp patches on the pitch.

Sri Lanka won the two-match series 1-0 after their 79-run victory in Dublin on Tuesday.
