Reserve days for Sri Lanka-Pakistan ODIs

Colombo, Jun 16: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has announced that the on-going ODI series between the hosts and Pakistan will have reserve days due to rain in the country.

The five match one-day series started on June 7, as both the teams have won a match each while the third ODI was washed out due to rain in Colombo. With two more matches remaining, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has taken precautionary steps and has announced reserve days if the matches are washed out due to rain.

"Sri Lanka Cricket is pleased to announce that a reserve day has been allocated for the fourth and fifth one-day internationals against Pakistan," the SLC said in a statement.

It is learnt that the weather forecast for Saturday and Monday have predicted showers on both days, and since both the teams have won a match each, the series is equally poised.

Moreover, since rain has already affected the series, reducing the opening match in Pallekele to a 42 overs game, and also resticting the third game in Colombo to 6.2 overs before it was abandoned.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka are scheduled to play three-Test series from June 22, after completing the ODI series.
