Much-awaited Pakistan Sri Lanka clash abandoned due to rain

Without a ball being bowled at Bristol, the Pakistan Sri Lanka match ended with no result. Not even the toss could take place in the eleventh match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 because of continuous rain.

When the rain stopped, umpires found the conditions unplayable

After inspecting the pitch twice, the umpires decided that the game was not possible due to few watery patches on the field. As a result, both Sri Lanka and Pakistan have been awarded one point each.

Constant rain disappoints fans of both Pakistan Sri Lanka

There was a huge crowd supporting both Pak and SL in a World Cup match that never took place. They were saddened by ICC’s decision to abandon the crucial match.

SL has never beaten Pakistan in a World Cup match; they were hoping to bank on Pakistan’s weakness against pace this time around. Similarly, Pakistan was hoping to continue their 100 percent record against Sri Lanka in the World Cup and improve their ranking in the mega event.
