June 8, 2019
Yesterday's World Cup match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka ended in a huge disappointment for fans. The match was abandoned due to continuous and heavy rain in Bristol and not a single ball was bowled.
Both teams have been allotted one point for game and now stand at three points each.
The match outcome has come as a major disappointment for both the teams as well. Pakistan and Sri Lanka both teams were hoping to win the match and make up for the previous losses.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz said, "As a team we really wanted to play this match especially after gaining momentum with the win against England. It is unfortunate that we were not able to play.
Since 1975 this is the second World Cup match played in England that was abandoned without a single ball bowled.
"We came here to play. We are really disappointed as a team and as an individual. We won the last game and ended on a high note, Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne said.
Pakistan will face Australia in their next game on Wednesday. While India will play against Australia on Sunday.
