Rain washes out Sri Lanka, Pakistan match

Bristol, Jun 7 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 6/7/2019 12:55:43 PM IST

The World Cup match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Friday after persistent rain in Bristol.

The game was scheduled to begin at 10:30 pm (0930 GMT) but was eventually called off in the afternoon, with both teams being awarded a point. It is the first match at the World Cup in England and Wales to be abandoned without a result. Both teams now have three points, with one win and a loss apiece.

Pakistan lost to the West Indies by seven wickets at Trent Bridge before beating England by 14 runs at the same venue on Monday. Sri Lanka crashed to a 10-wicket defeat against New Zealand before pulling off a 34-run win against Afghanistan in a rain-affected game.

The call-off upset fans who had travelled to watch the game. “We came from Lahore to watch this match and it proved a damp squib,” said Farhan Malik.
