Pakistan, Sri Lanka match called off after persistent rain

The 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been called off due to rain.

The chances of match being interrupted by rain were significantly high, from the last couple of days, and it seemed unlikely that a full match would have taken place in Bristol today.

The outcome means that both teams will now share a point each.

Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka bounced back after opening defeats.

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.

All 10 teams play each other in a round-robin format, with the top four qualifying for the semi-finals.
