Rain washes out 2nd NZ, Pak­istan ODI

The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

The se­cond one-day in­ter­na­tional be­tween New Zealand and Pak­istan in Napier was aban­doned with­out a ball be­ing bowled due to heavy rain and a wet out­field on Thurs­day.

The call­ing off means Pak­istan, who lost Mon­day's first one-dayer by 70 runs, can now only hope to level the se­ries when the teams play the third and fi­nal match at Auck­land on Sun­day.

Heavy rain ren­dered the out­field too wet for any play and the um­pires fi­nally de­cided to call off the match af­ter sev­eral in­spec­tions through the day.

New Zealand had ear­lier won the three-match Twenty20 in­ter­na­tional se­ries 2-1.
