England-India match abandoned because of rain
BRISTOL, England (AP) — The first of five one-day internationals between England and India has been abandoned without a ball being bowled because of rain at the County Ground.
Rain began to fall before the start of play and the match was abandoned at 1:30 p.m., three hours after the scheduled start.
England, which recently beat India 3-1 in a five-match test series, planned to give a debut to opening batsman Alex Hales.
The second match will take place in Cardiff on Wednesday.
