Cricket: Scotland v Pakistan abandoned due to rain
Sunday, July 1, 2007
Due to a waterlogged field caused by overnight rain, and a poor weather forecast for the rest of the day, the match was first delayed from a 10:45 BST start and then abandoned after a pitch inspection at 12:00.
The match was the only ODI that Pakistan would have played against the hosts in the brief tour. Pakistan will play an ODI against India at Titwood, Glasgow, Scotland on Tuesday, while Scotland will play an ODI against India in August during the latter's tour of England.
In 2005, an ODI between Scotland and Australia was also abandoned because of rain.
Pakistan squad: Abdul Razzaq, Fawad Alam, Iftikhar Anjum, Imran Nazir, Kamran Akmal (wkt), Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Yousuf, Salman Butt, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Shoaib Malik (capt), Umar Gul, Yasir Hameed, Younis Khan
Result: Match abandoned without a ball bowled
