Rain washes out first ODI between Proteas and Sri Lanka

Tazmin Brits struck a sparkling century, but rain had the final say as the opening ODI between the Proteas women and Sri Lanka was washed out at Buffalo Park in East London on Tuesday night.

Brits cracked 12 fours on her way to her second ODI hundred, before she was out for 116 off 128 balls, with her effort leading the Proteas to a formidable 270/6 batting first.

Just under seven overs were then possible in Sri Lanka’s chase, with them reaching 23/0 when the rain arrived to chase the players from the field, and eventually end the match after the poor conditions persisted.

The teams now head to the Diamond Oval in Kimberley where they will battle it out in the second ODI on Saturday.

In the first innings Brits was in top form as she shared in a number of good partnerships, before bringing up her second ton just over three months after she notched her first against Bangladesh in December.

“I am happy. I didn’t have a good T20 series, so getting a century in the first ODI has definitely boosted my confidence,” said Brits after she was dismissed late in the innings.
