Rain delays Sri Lanka-Pakistan Test in Galle



Bad weather has delayed the start of the first Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Galle on Wednesday.

Covers were still on at the Galle International Stadium at 9.30 am (0400 GMT), the time scheduled for the toss, as heavy rain lashed the southern coastal town.

Sri Lanka and Pakistan are due to play three Tests, followed by five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches.
