Colombo:

Intermittent drizzle on Tuesday delayed the day-night fourth and penultimate cricket one-dayer between India and Sri Lanka here.

It started raining around half an hour before the match was scheduled to begin, leaving the outfield of the R Premadasa stadium damp. The covers were still on.

India is leading the five-match rubber 2-1 and looking to seal the match while the home side would be trying to keep the series alive.

After being thrashed in the first match in Dambulla, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his young brave hearts have tilted the scale in their favour with two close wins and need just one more triumph to record a rare overseas series win.

India: MS Dhoni (captain), S Badrinath, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Praveen Kumar, Munaf Patel, Zaheer Khan, R P Singh and Parthiv Patel.

Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Chamara Kapugedera, Chamara Silva, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chaminda Vaas, Thilan Thushara, Nuwan Kulasekera, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Mahela Udawatte, Dilhara Fernando, Jehan Mubarak and Malinda Warnapura.

Hours of play (IST): 2:30 PM.
