Every single match so far including the two practice games have been interrupted due to rain. After the first ODI got abandoned without the toss, the second was won by England by 31 runs under the DLS method and the third encounter too got reduced to 21 overs per side due to rain. And, the next encounter too will be no less than the previous three as it will be played at the same ground in Pallekele.
Both the teams will meet on Saturday morning at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele for the fourth ODI. England leads the 5-match ODI series by 2-0 and this is a must-win encounter for the hosts if they wish to keep the series alive.
