Pakistan v Sri Lanka matchup postponed by Bristol rainy

Persistent rain in Bristol has postponed the toss for today’s World Cup fixture planned for 2: 30 pm between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the County Ground. There has been no revised beginning time for the match up, which was planned to start at 2: 30 pm local time. The covers are still on the pitch and bowlers’ run-ups, with rainy and possibly thunder forecast for the day.

A few fans, including a helper waving a Pakistan flag, braved the weather conditions amid the drizzle. Sixth-ranked Pakistan and ninth-ranked Sri Lanka every have 1 win and one ( heavy ) defeat so far in the 2019 edition of the World Cup. Sri Lanka has a chance today to do something it has never done before at any Cricket World Cup: Beat Pakistan.

Pakistan has won all 7 finished World Cup games against Sri Lanka and has a 90-58 One-Day International ( ODI ) win-loss overall record against the Sri Lankans with 1 tie. Sri Lanka, the 1996 champion, beat Afghanistan in a rain-hit game to rebound after a 10-wicket thrashing by New Zealand. Kusal Perera is set to open up again for Sri Lanka after hitting 78 against Afghanistan.

Pakistan, the 1992 champion, ended a run of 11 straight losses in ODIs with a 14-run win over top-ranked England at Trent Bridge on Monday. The win over pre-tournament favorite England was a dramatic turnaround from Pakistan’s heavy opening loss to West Indies.
