Oct 22, Sourav Ganguly had said before that Rohit Sharma should live cricket score between india and pakistan the batting in Tests like he has been doing so successfully in white-ball cricket. The hosts lead in the three-match series.
The cut-off time is 8pm It might be a truncated game at best but with rain returning, this game's fate hangs by a thread now PM IST: With the rain having completely stopped, one would have imagined that the groundstaff would hurriedly start the process of draining the outfield.
However, according to reports, the drains seem to have been clogged due to heavy rain.
Oh dear! Let's cross our fingers and hope that this historic moment is not spoilt by rain PM IST: It continues to rain at the stadium and the chances of a shortened game or even a total washout are increasing by the minute. The main concern here is whether the ground can be made fit for play even after rain stops.
Even if the rain stops now, the groundsmen will have their task cut out as the field of play is covered with poodles of water here and there.
Not great signs PM IST: Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has said that it is time for other boards to reconsider their approach towards playing in Pakistan and requested all boards to support cricket in Pakistan.
Major teams have avoided Pakistan since that ambush, which killed eight people and injured several players.
The drizzle has continued till now and it remains to be seen if and when the rain does stop, how 'ready' are the staff in draining the ground and make it ready for the game One thing that is clearly different in Sri Lanka is, the entire ground would be covered during rain, though it's not so in Karachi.
The significance of the occasion can't be overstated as Pakistan gears up to show the world that it is ready to host international cricket. So, the wait for the return of international cricket in Pakistan continues after rain washed out the first ODI.
