Scotland v Pakistan - Abandoned

19 May

Cricket Scotland can confirm that the start time for the second One Day International against Pakistan has been abandoned

Unfortunately torrential rain across the country over the last 24 hours has resulted in a waterlogged outfield. It was confirmed following several pitch inspections on Sunday that the match would be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

With a sodden outfield and vast pools of standing water lying behind the stands, the venue struggled to cope with the intense rainfall in the lead up to the match. 

After a combination of some superb work from the ground staff throughout the day, and the weather clearing up slightly, the possibility of play looked likely.

The umpires called a 2.30pm inspection along with the captains, and assessed the condition of the wicket.

Despite the dreich conditions, a healthy crowd of supporters from both camps persevered with the weather, and were in high spirits, in the hope of some play during the day.

However, at 2.45pm the decision was made that the overnight rain had meant playing conditions were too dangerous to allow any play.

The decision meant it was an unfortunate way to end the series, which began with an encouraging contest in glorious sunshine on Friday. 

Full refunds will be given through LiveSport.co.uk. The transactions will take between 7-10 to proccess.
