Sri Lanka Tour Of Pakistan : 1st ODI Called Off Due To Rain In Karachi

The first one day international of the three match series between host Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been called off due to rain and wet out-field at National Stadium Karachi.

Karachi's first ODI in over 10 years didn't even get as far as the toss.

An unusual spell of monsoon rain in the southern port city during this time of the year left the Cricket Ground completely waterlogged.

Umpires called off the match at 4:30 Pm With no chance of any play.

The washout meant that it was the first time that one day international has been completely washed out due to rain in Karachi.
