Excellent effort by Sri Lanka to restrict Pakistan to 201. Maharoof did the damage early on by picking up 3 wickets, Lokuarachchi also picked up 3 wickets in the end. Yousuf was the top scorer for Pakistan with 46. Please join us after the break. Covers are on the field at the moment.

It is pouring down at the moment, so there is delay in the start of the Sri Lankan innings. Please stay tuned.

Update 13:35 GMT: It is still raining, the outfield is water logged, looks unlikely for any play, please stay tuned.

The match has been abandoned and declared as No Result as the rain continues to fall, there is no chance of any play. Thanks for being with us, this is your commentator Binoy George signing off. Please join us again for the live coverage of the second ODI on Sunday the 19th of March. Until then it is bye from all of us here.
