Karachi’s first ODI in over 10 years did not even get so far as the toss. Heavy rain within the days main as much as this match was already proving a problem, with doubts arising over whether or not the outfield would dry in time. Then, on Friday, extra rain was delivered by towering darkish clouds, forming massive puddles on the outfield, and making even umpire inspections a problem, as soon as the rain did ultimately relent. The severity of the downpour has prompted modifications within the tour as nicely with the second sport being postponed by a day to September 30. The ultimate ODI will happen as initially scheduled on October 2.
The Nationwide Stadium was closely waterlogged with the covers by no means shifting by the course of a dark Friday afternoon, and simply earlier than four:30 pm native time the officers had little alternative however to desert this sport. Karachi will want brilliant sunshine over the weekend to be able to help the drying of the outfield, however sadly, extra rain is forecast for Sunday.
Sri Lanka’s tour to Pakistan consists of three ODIs and three T20Is.
