Lahore: Rain suspended play on the fourth morning of the Asian Test Championship final between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the Gaddafi stadium on Saturday.
After 4.5 overs Pakistan had taken its total to 204 for five when heavy drizzle forced the umpires Daryl Harpeer of Australia and Ather Zaidi of Pakistan to call a halt to play. Sri Lanka has two full days to force a result but weather forecasts predict more rain in the next 48 hours. Pakistan still needs another 90 runs to avoid an innings defeat with Inzamam-ul Haq on 45 and Shoaib Malik on seven.
