MALAHIDE: The second of two one-day international matches between Ireland and Pakistan failed to see a ball bowled on Saturday, with bad weather forcing a total abandonment at Malahide.
Cricket Ireland has also confirmed that the match, which was scheduled to begin at 2:45PM (Pakistan Standard Time), has been abandoned.
“It has been officially confirmed that there will be no play today,” Cricket Ireland wrote on its verified Twitter account.
Pakistan won the two-match series 1-0 after thrashing Ireland by 255 runs in the first ODI at Malahide on Thursday — their biggest victory in terms of runs in the format.
Ireland, chasing 338 to win, were skittled out for 82, with spinner Imad Wasim taking an ODI best five for 14.
Sharjeel Khan was named player of the series for making a blistering 152 — his maiden century in the first T20.
Pakistan will move back to England where the five match ODI series begins on Wednesday in Southampton.
Ireland will start preparing for the visit of Hong Kong, for their Inter-continental match which starts on the 29th August in Stormont.
