Pakistan lose precious point as rain washes out Bristol game

Pakistan pulled off a Pakistan with a stunning victory over hosts and tournament favourites England following an abject loss to West Indies in their tournament opener.

That ended a sequence of 11 consecutive defeats in completed one-day internationals. But it's hardly any consolation for the Pakistanis, who must have been fancying their chances of gaining full victory points from the game against a Sri Lankan team that has so far been quite unimpressive in the tournament. "We know that when he's come up, most of the time it's match-winning".

Sri Lanka crashed to a 10-wicket defeat against New Zealand before pulling off a 34-run win against Afghanistan in a rain-affected game.

BRISTOL: If there was any easy picking in this World Cup for Pakistan it was here at the Bristol County Ground on Friday.

But the 1996 champions will be wary of another middle-order batting collapse after they lost five wickets for 14 runs against New Zealand and seven wickets for 36 runs against Afghanistan. I give an honest talk, that's all.


"He's an awesome player", said Hathurusingha.

Rain is forecast throughout the day in Bristol, raising possibility of a washout.

Pakistan would look to clinch early wickets as they are aware of Sri Lanka's brittle batting line-up while Sri Lanka would expect its bowlers to shine in front of a rather strong opponent.

Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said his side wanted to play against Sri Lanka but unfortunately the match was abandoned due to rain.
