The second One Day International between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was scheduled to be played at the National Stadium in Karachi on September 29. It has been rescheduled to September 30, as agreed by the two boards – PCB and SLC. Both the boards took the decision in order to ensure that the ground staff gets one day extra to make sure the game takes place and the playing conditions get better after the first One Day International match of the series was washed out due to heavy rain.
“This week’s unseasonal heavy rains have forced us to review the series schedule,” Zakir Khan, PCB Director – International Cricket, shared the news on Friday (September 27). “I am thankful to Sri Lanka Cricket as well as our host broadcasters for agreeing to amend the match schedule to ensure there are no further abandonments due to rain in what is an important bilateral FTP series for Pakistan.”
On the other hand, there is good news for the people whoever bought the tickets as the tickets sold for the first ODI, as well as for the earlier decided second ODI, will be valid for both the second and the third ODI. Moreover, the people, who were unable to attend the match on the rescheduled day will be refunded.
