1st  ODI: Match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka cancelled due to rain

Karachi (Staff Report): The opening ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been cancelled as heavy rain lashed the city on Friday.


The Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed that the toss has been delayed and the new scheduled will be announced once the ground is handed over to the match officials.

The toss was originally scheduled to be held at 2:30pm local time with the first ball being scheduled to be bowled at 3pm.

Rainwater has accumulated in the outfield of National Stadium which indicates unlikelihood of an early start of the match.
