The third One Day International between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at the R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo has been halted due to rain.

When rain stopped play, Pakistan were struggling at 12 for 2 having lost both their openers cheaply.

The rains got heavier after some mild drizzle.

Earlier, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and elected to bat first in the third One Day International (ODI) against Sri Lanka.

Going into the game, both teams have won a game apiece and they would be looking to take a lead in this game.

The two match T20 international series between the two teams was tied one all.
