Pakistan and Sri Lanka were forced to split the two points after their World Cup match was called off due to heavy rain, which left the field unplayable here Friday. After a couple of inspections, umpires Nigel Llong and Ian Gould decided to call off the game at 3:46 PM (Local time). The sky was still cloudy when the final inspection was held, keeping in mind a 20-over-a-side game. 

Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka have won one and lost one match each. Pakistan lost to West Indies by seven wickets in their opening match before beating favourites England by 14 runs. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, lost to New Zealand by 10 wickets and brought their campaign back on track with a 34-run victory against Afghanistan.

While Pakistan take on Australia at Taunton on June 12 next, Sri Lanka will take on neighbours Bangladesh a day before on June 11 at Bristol. After gaining a point each, Sri Lanka and Pakistan move to third and fourth place on the points table respectively.
