Pakistan v Sri Lanka Match deserted
As it happened
Persistent rain and a humid outfield pressured the primary washout of the 2019 World Cup as the sport between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was deserted and not using a ball being bowled. Though the rain wasn’t heavy, it was sufficient to pressure a delay of greater than 5 hours and render a number of components of the outfield too moist to play on.
Umpire Ian Gould and Nigel Llong made the ultimate name at three.45pm native time. The groups cut up factors, which ensured Sri Lanka moved to 3rd on the table by advantage of a superior run-rate (-1.517). Pakistan, like Sri Lanka, have three factors from as many video games, however they solely have a web run-rate of -2.412.
The (no) end result means Sri Lanka should wait even longer to interrupt their World Cup duck towards Pakistan. The top-to-head reads 7-Zero.
Pakistan will now take pleasure in a five-day break earlier than going through Australia in Taunton whereas Sri Lanka will run into Bangladesh on June 11 in Bristol.
