Rain ruins Edgbaston warm-up

The opening Champions Trophy warm-up match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The day-night fixture at Edgbaston was the victim of persistent rain and, after a series of pitch inspections, the umpires decided to call it off shortly after 4pm.

The next warm-up fixtures, India versus Sri Lanka at the same ground and Australia against the West Indies in Cardiff, take place on Saturday.

Pakistan's last match before the tournament proper is against South Africa at the Oval on Monday.
