India v Pakistan match abandoned
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
India travelled to Glasgow after defeating South Africa in a three-match series at Belfast, while Pakistan haven't played since they went up against Sri Lanka at Abu Dhabi in May. The two great rivals haven't played each other since April last year, and unfortunately the weather meant that 5000-odd fans who had bought tickets for the game went home disappointed.
As for the teams, the interminable wait for play to start included a dressing-room meeting with Prince Charles, heir to the throne. Once that was over, they left for the hotel, India to ponder a series against England, and Pakistan more time off before they gather for the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa.
