PCB Rescheduled Second ODI Between Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka
After the heavy rains of recent days, the PCB has rescheduled the second ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka which is moved from 29th September to 30th September 2019. The first game was cancelled on Friday due to heavy rain. PCB said this in a press release:
Both councils have decided to allow the players to prepare for the outdoor game of the National Stadium for next week’s game. This week’s heavy rains, including Friday afternoon, have left the outfield soggy, with field keepers needing at least two full days to prepare for the cricket pitch.
The director of the PCB’s international cricket programmed, Zakir Khan, thanked Sri Lanka’s board of directors and broadcasters for agreeing to change the schedule, saying fans did not want any more abandoned matches due to bad weather or a soggy outfield. The PCB also offered the full refund of the match tickets of the day. The same tickets can be used for the second or third game.
The PCB also announced that tickets sold for Friday, September 27 would be valid for September 30 or October 2 ODI, while tickets sold for the game on Sunday, September 29 could also be used for September 30 or 2 October ODI. The new tickets for the deferred match have been made available at the designated TCS counters and online. Those with tickets for Sunday’s game will be offered a full refund if they cannot attend the game on the revised day.
