- Play not possible due to heavy rain
Heavy rains continued for hours in Colombo on Tuesday on the second day of the second Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, leading to suspension of play.
The morning session was washed out and Pakistan took the lead against the hosts.
However, no play was possible in the second session as there is a delay due to inclement weather, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said later in the day.
The Green Caps were 178–2 with a lead of 12 runs when rain interrupted play and an early lunch.
Abdullah Shafiq was batting on 87 runs, meanwhile captain Babar Azam had scored 28 runs.
Pakistan on Monday sealed the second Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground after bowling out the hosts for just 166 runs in two sessions.
Leading the two-match series 1-0, the Babar-led side batted at a brisk pace to further consolidate their position and ended the first day on 145-2.
Earlier, Sri Lanka failed to impress with the bat after skipper Dimuth Karunaratne elected to bat after winning the toss.
Naseem Shah (3-41) and Shaheen Afridi (1-44) did damage to Sri Lanka’s top-order, leaving the home side at 36-4.
Dhananjaya de Silva top-scored for Sri Lanka with 57 runs, but only two other teammates managed to reach double figures.
Pakistan continued to perform well in the field and Shan Masood ran out opener Nishan Madushka and tail-ender Prabhat Jayasuriya with direct throws.
When Pakistan came out to bat, they scored quickly.
Opener Imam-ul-Haq scored six runs before being caught in the gully but Shafiq put on a quickfire 108-run partnership with Masood (51) to keep the visitors in check.
Asitha Fernando took her second wicket when Masood missed a pull shot.
