The second ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been rescheduled for Monday (September 30) following heavy rains in Karachi.
The second match was initially scheduled to be played on September 29 but following heavy rains in the city, the groundsmen require at least two days to make the outfield suitable for play.
Karachi’s ODI return was delayed on Friday following a heavy spell of rain which left pools of water around the pitch.
“This week’s unseasonal heavy rains have forced us to review the series schedule,” said PCB’s Director International cricket.
“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.”
The PCB has also announced tickets sold for Friday, 27 September, will be valid for either 30 September or 2 October ODI, while tickets sold for Sunday, 29 September, match may also be used for either 30 September or 2 October ODI.
As per the PCB ticketing policy for the series, the PCB will allow refund of all tickets for Friday’s match or allow ticket holders to use them for either the second or third ODI.
It has also been agreed that ticket-holders of Sunday’s match unable to attend Monday’s match will also get full refunds.
