An ODI series shortly after the World Twenty20, less than the week since the Champions League and mere days before the start of two high-profile Test affairs is largely at a hiding to nothing in terms of interest levels.
Sri Lanka needed to chase 72 to win in 14 overs against New Zealand in Pallekele, but the rain arrived two overs into the chase, the Lankan score on six for nought, and ended the match as a no-result, as five overs had not been completed.
Look, I'm not going to lie. Nearly 60 Twenty20s in little over a month has me all smash-bashed out. If I have to write the words 'swashbuckling', 'quick-fire' or 'Shane Watson' one more time I might have a coronary.
