Pakistan, Sri Lanka suffer washout

Pakistan, Sri Lanka suffer washout

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Cricket World Cup clash will take place on Friday, June 7, 2019.

The solitary point each leaves Sri Lanka and Pakistan third and fourth on the table, respectively, with seven other teams having played at least a game less.

However, there is little doubt in the fact that Pakistan would feel the sting of this abandoned game a bit more strongly, as they would have fancied themselves to get the better of The Lions, more so after their 14-run victory over England in the last match.

The (no) result means Sri Lanka will have to wait even longer to break their World Cup duck against Pakistan. It is unfortunate that we were not able to play.

The next will next travel to Taunton to play defending champions Australia on Wednesday. "They also have momentum as they have won their first two matches".

"We have great team spirit and our confidence is on a high after the win against England", he said.

After crashing miserably to West Indies in a World Cup mismatch in their opening game of the tournament, Pakistan came back strongly to upset England in a thriller at Trent Bridge. "We won't relax in our remaining six matches", Sarfaraz added.

Pakistan were looking to maintain its unbeaten streak against Sri Lanka in Friday's group stage match.

Pakistan will be tempted to bring in fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain for his raw pace, something that New Zealand exploited against Sri Lanka during their 10-wicket rout of their opponents in Cardiff on Saturday. They were fully aware that the game against shaky Sri Lanka was a flawless opportunity to record their second consecutive win in the event.
