World Cup 2019: Pakistan, Sri Lanka split points after wash out

World Cup 2019: Pakistan, Sri Lanka split points after wash out

Pakistan and Sri Lanka were forced to split the two points after their World Cup match was called off due to heavy rain, which left the field unplayable in Bristol on Friday.

After a couple of inspections, umpires Nigel Llong and Ian Gould decided to call off the game at 3:46pm. The sky was still cloudy when the final inspection was held, keeping in mind a 20-over-a-side game.

Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka have won one and lost one match each.

Pakistan lost to West Indies by seven wickets in their opening match before beating favorites England by 14 runs.
