Pakistan's Identical Start To 1992 World Cup Triumph Leaves Fans Amused

Pakistan's Identical Start To 1992 World Cup Triumph Leaves Fans Amused

Pakistan's match against Sri Lanka was the first at this year's Cricket World Cup to be abandoned without a ball bowled after persistent rain in Bristol.

After a couple of inspections, umpires Nigel Llong and Ian Gould chose to call off the game at 3:46pm. "We lost a crucial point because we were sure of beating Sri Lanka".


Which TV channels will broadcast the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match? Teams will be given two points for a win, one point for a tie/NR (except the semi-finals and final which will be decided by a super over in case of a tie), and no points for a loss.

Sri Lanka's next game is against Bangladesh here Tuesday. Pakistan is unbeaten versus the Lankans in the World Cup and Sarfaraz's men would be disappointed to not have gotten to take the field on Friday.


The notoriously unpredictable Pakistan side held their nerve to beat the hosts by 14 runs at Trent Bridge on Monday, just three days after crashing to a seven-wicket defeat against the West Indies at the same venue. It is unfortunate that we were not able to play. With one win and one loss respectively, Sri Lanka is placed seventh while Pakistan is placed eighth in the ICC CWC2019 points table and team standings. "We won't relax in our remaining six matches".

Fast track to 2019, Friday's game against Sri Lanka.


Sri Lanka Playing 11: Dimuth Karunaratne (C), Kusal Perera (WK), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep. And also, Sarfraz Ahmed added that Australians are defending champions of the tournament and also got the momentum with a couple of back-to-back victories in their kitty.
