Ground staff cover the pitch prior to the World Cup Super Eights match between West Indies and Sri Lanka at the Guyana National Stadium in Guyana on Sunday.
Rain delayed the start by 45 minutes after ground-staff mopped up the saturated outfield quickly.
West Indies captain Brian Lara won the toss and elected to field against Sri Lanka.
A superb century from Sanath Jayasuriya helped Sri Lanka crush West Indies by 113 runs to hand the hosts their third successive defeat.
