There was no result in the fourth Commonwealth Bank Series match between Australia and Sri Lanka at the SCG tonight after the match was abandoned due to the condition of the outfield which remained very wet with over 60 minutes of constant rain.

Australia had batted first and made 222-9 in their 50 overs thanks to half-centuries from David Warner and Mitchell Starc. Sri Lanka had just started their innings when rain interrupted play, but it was so light that everyone assumed that it was only a matter of time before play would resume. However, that was not to be case, much to the disappointment of the fans, who had braved the weather to stay on at the SCG.
