The ground staff had a tough time in clearing the water to give any hope of a match, but eventually all of their hard work went in vain.
Some Pakistani supporters are all smiles, and they have all the reason to be happy as Sarfaraz Ahmed's men climbed to the fourth place with three points. Sri Lanka, with the same number of points, are placed third currently.
Umpires Nigel Llong and Ian Gould have a chat with match referee Andy Pycroft. Despite the rain having stopped during the second half of the day, the match had to be called off due to a wet outfield.
