The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 fixture between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Bristol on Friday was abandoned due to rain.
Rain played spoilsport throughout the day and not a single delivery could be bowled in the fixture.
Both sides have been awarded a point each as a result.
Pakistan had started their campaign with a seven-wicket loss to West Indies in Nottingham. The side bounced back in the tournament to beat hosts and world number one England by 14 runs on the same venue. The 1992 champions will head to Taunton where they take on defending champions Australia on June 12.
Same was the case with Sri Lanka who started their World Cup campaign with a 10 wicket loss to New Zealand. They went on to beat Afghanistan by 34 runs under the DLS method. The winners of the 1996 edition will play Bangladesh on June 11 in Bristol.
The decision has finally been taken and the match has been called off
Some good news coming from the centre. The rain has stopped and the umpires are down at the middle for an inspection
It will be a point each for both sides if rain has the final word

It’s still raining in Bristol and the chances of the match taking place are getting slimmer by the minute
No cricket at the moment as rain is hammering down at the Bristol cricket stadium. The toss is delayed as well
