Leeds:

The first One-Day International between England and West Indies at Headingley has been abandoned due to a waterlogged outfield.

Play was scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m. local time (0945 GMT), but torrential rain forced the umpires to delay the start.

Although the rain cleared, the outfield was saturated and the umpires conducted three separate pitch inspections before deciding to abandon the game.
