Rvel Zahid: It turned out to be a bit an anticlimax with the weather. There was a massive build-up to the series as Sri Lanka returned to Karachi after almost a decade hiatus. The patter of heavy rain played spoilsport as massive puddles on the outfield meant that there was always going to be a fleeting prospect of any play. Something to ponder and work on for cricket administrators is the drainage facilities which aren't adequate at National Stadium Karachi. The weather forecast doesn't look good for Sunday either and PCB officials have decided to postpone the 2nd ODI to Monday. Frustrating day but fans have now got more time to gear up for the much-anticipated series. Do join us on Monday at 3 pm for Cricingif's live ball by ball commentary.
