Pakistan win series 2-0 after final T20 game called off

Sports

January 28, 2020

KARACHI: Looking for a series whitewash, Pakistan were deprived of a 3-0 victory against Bangladesh when the third and final Twenty20 International in Lahore was abandoned due to wet weather.

The prospect of such an end to the series had begun to increase substantially over the past couple of days, with rain forecast for Monday, but the intensity and longevity of the downpour meant there was little choice but to call it off 40 minutes before the official cut-off time.

The series never really took off, with Pakistan wrapping up two straightforward wins in the first two T20Is. That means they wrap up the series - their first T20I series win after four losses on the spin - and retain the world number one ranking in the format, which they would have lost with one defeat this series. Bangladesh will return home tonight, and return next week for the first of two Test matches at Pindi Cricket Stadium, which begins on February 7. –with inputs from agencies
