Match abandoned without a ball bowled
Played at Edgbaston, Birmingham (neutral venue)
30 May 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

4:06pm: Match has been abandoned. It had rained little bit more, but the outfield isn't looking great. Thanks for tuning in, join us for the next warm-up on June 1st.

Russel Arnold tweets: Inspection at 4.. the sun has broken through and if no more rain we will have a game....6.37 is the latest we can start.

3:30pm: A day of inspections, we have another one coming up at 4.00pm.

2:30pm: Most of the covers are off and the umpires are out and having a look. Umpires have confirmed a second inspection will take place at 3.15pm.

2:00pm Some good news, weather looks good and Super Sopper is working hard to clear the water and the inspection will take place in half-an hour from now.

1:10pm: Pitch inspection confirmed at Edgbaston at 2.30pm

1:00pm: The umpires are out and having a look at the outfield, the super sopper is also doing its work, but the covers are still on. There is a possibility of a 3pm start. They are starting to clear it now. That will take 90 mins. Then they'll take a look.

George Dobell who is just down the road from the ground just confirmed that it has stopped raining but still a long way to go before we can get some play in.

Abdul Qadir: "Any chances for the game to begin at the scheduled time?" - It is unlikely we will start on time.

Hello and welcome to ESPNCricinfo's live coverage of the first warm-up match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, it is raining at the moment and the covers are all on. We will keep you posted as things move along.
