The 5th and final one Day International between Indiaand Sri Lanka in Delhi has been called off due to a pitch which was deemed unsafe.
Sri Lanka were batting 1st and had been reduced to 83-5 after 23.3 overs but both umpires felt that the pitch was not safe for play and the game was duly abandoned.
India had already claimed the series 3-1 after their victory in the last game at Eden Gardens.
Sri Lanka would have been desperate however to have pulled of a consolation victory to leave India on a positive note.
The two teams will meet again very soon, as they are both taking part in a triangular series which is to be hosted in Bangladesh.

India also won the Test Series against Sri Lanka 2-0 and the 2 T20 match series finished honours even at 1-1.
India were without MS Dhoni for the last 2 matches as the Indian captain was handed a 2 match ban because of India's slow over rate in the 2nd One Day International.
