Rain halts again India-Pakistan match

For the second time rain interrupted the match between two Asian cricket powerhouses India and Pakistan at at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

The match stopped after 35 overs had been bowled and Pakistan stood 166 for six in chasing a massive 337-run target set by India.

Earlier, Pakistan lost its sixth wicket for 165 at 6 34.1 overs. Vijay Shankar bowled out Pakistani wicket keeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed.

The Pakistan captain drags on, looked to drive expansively through the offside but got an inside edge instead and the ball clatters into leg stump. Thus another nail hammered in an already tightly secured Pakistan coffin.

The Greenshirts started cautiously, not taking any risk. Lady Luck appeared to have smiled on them in the 5th over when the impressive Bhuvneshwar Kumar tweaked his hamstring and left the field.

But it proved to be a false dawn as his replacement, Vijay Shankar removed Imam with the first ball he bowled, trapping the southpaw in front of wickets.
