Ireland vs Pakistan second ODI washed out at Malahide

Rain saw the second one-day international between Ireland and Pakistan at Malahide on Saturday abandoned without a ball bowled.

Prospects for play were grim once bad weather delayed the scheduled 10:45am local (0945 GMT start) and never looked like improving as heavy rain continued to lash the ground.

Pakistan won the two-match series 1-0 after thrashing Ireland by 255 runs in the first ODI at Malahide on Thursday -- their biggest victory in terms of runs in the format.

Sharjeel Khan made a blistering 152, his maiden century at this level.

Ireland, chasing 338 to win, were skittled out for 82, with spinner Imad Wasim taking an ODI best five for 14.

Pakistan, who ended a four-match Test series against England all square at 2-2 following a 10-wicket win at The Oval last week, will now return to play England in a five-match ODI series starting at Southampton on Wednesday.
