Rain forced the umpires to abandon play with a ball being bowled around 5 pm – about three hours after the scheduled start – on the first day at Sabina Park in the Jamaica capital.

The three-match series is level 1-1, after Windies “A” won the first “Test” by an innings and 13 runs at the Trelawny Multiplex on the Jamaica north coast two Saturdays ago, and Sri Lanka “A” recovered to win the second “Test” by 280 at the same venue a week later.
