Rain has played havoc with the New Zealand A cricket team's tour of England, forcing the abandonment of their one-day match against Sri Lanka A today.

The two teams were in a tri-series with the England Lions that had gotten off to a soggy start in Taunton, Somerset.

The heavens opened after just 5.3 overs and did not relent.

New Zealand had won the toss and asked Sri Lanka to bat.

They reached 31-1 before the rain arrived.

Scott Kuggeleijn took the only wicket to fall.

New Zealand next faced the England Lions on Friday, before taking on Sri Lanka once again the following day.
