Two days of the first Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka are done and dusted. However, the start of day three will be long delayed.
The ground is entirely covered right now and there is a lot of water on the covers. The groundsmen are trying hard to remove the water off the covers. However, it will take a lot of time and we are in for a long delay.
68.1 overs were bowled on Day 1 and just 18.2 on Day 2. While it is still cloudy and there is no rain around at the moment.
Once the game starts, lets hope rain stays away from Rawalpindi and allows us to enjoy the return of Test cricket in Pakistan. If that happens, Dhananjaya de Silva who’s batting on 72 would look to take his side towards a decent first innings total while the Pakistan bowlers would hope to take the remaining 4 wickets as quickly as possible.
