Sri Lanka vs England live commentary: England bat first in Dambulla as rain stops play

The ground is now completely covered, which is some feat from the groundstaff.

“Why are we playing in monsoon season?”. Only really as daft as playing cricket in an English summer. Just the risk you take.

So, England are 92-2 after 15 overs and going along nicely under Eoin Morgan (14*) and Joe Root (25*). Both Jason Roy (24) and Jonny Bairstow (25) back in the hutch.

You’ll get updates on the weather as soon as we get it. There’s an hour to play with – so it’s a while yet until we have to get out the dreaded Duckworth-Lewis-Stern calculations.
