The third and final match will also be played at the same venue on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>The series opener washout meant it was the first time in Karachi that an ODI has been completely washed out due to rain. The 10-year wait for ODI cricket continues in Karachi, but with weather forecast appearing feasible to play on Monday, chances of a full match are highly possible. <p></p> <p></p>The series attracted plenty of spotlight in its build-up with ten of Sri Lanka's top players the likes of Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal refusing to travel to Pakistan for the limited-overs series due to security concerns despite the Pakistan government providing the team with high level security normally reserved for heads of state.
