ODI cricket's return to Pakistan ruined by rain

Pak v SL, 1st ODI, report

Karachi was denied the chance to host it's first men's ODI since 2009 as the match was called off without a ball bowled.

It is the first time an ODI has ever been washed out at the venue.

Heavy rain hit the National Stadium before the start of play and continued past the start time. There was a brief break from the downpour but it was not enough to allow the outfield to dry before the drizzle returned, forcing the complete abandonment of the match.

The second ODI is set to take place on Sunday 29 September at the same venue.
