Rain and a damp outfield forced the first washout of the 2019 World Cup as the game between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled. Although the rain wasn't heavy, it was enough to force a delay of more than five hours and render several parts of the outfield too wet to play on. Umpire Ian Gould and Nigel Llong made the final call as wet outfield made things worst.
The teams split points, which ensured Sri Lanka moved to third on the table by virtue of a superior run-rate (-1.517). Pakistan, like Sri Lanka, have three points from as many games, but they only have a net run-rate of -2.412.
