Pak v SL - 1st ODI, Karachi

Pakistan-Sri Lanka first ODI called-off

Karachi: The second ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka which was set to be played at National Stadium in Karachi has been rescheduled from 29 September to 30 September.

Both Pakistan Cricket Board and Sri Lanka Cricket have agreed to this change in schedule.

This has been done to give the ground staff some extra time to ensure that the playing conditions are better after the first match was washed out due to rain.

After the much-awaited first ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was called off without a ball bowled at National Stadium here on Friday, the second ODI has been rescheduled to September 30.

The decision was mutually reached by the two boards to allow the ground staff to prepare the National Stadium outfield for next week's play.

This week's heavy rains, including on Friday afternoon, has left the outfield soggy, with the groundsmen requiring, at least, two complete days to make the ground fit for cricket.

Earlier, the second ODI was scheduled on September 29.

However, Sri Lanka returned to Pakistan in October 2017 for a lone T20 match in Lahore, the place where the attack took place.

This time, Sri Lanka have visited Pakistan to play three ODIs and as many T20Is. Before the final squad was named for the tour, ten Lankan players had opted out themselves from the series.
