Edgbaston was a bleak picture for most of the day as the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 warm-up match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
The dismal weather which held up England during their second Test victory over New Zealand has also played havoc with the domestic programme and this international friendly went the same way.
For Pakistan, they had at least already played three games since arriving in the United Kingdom, beating Scotland before tying with and beating Ireland.
Sri Lanka's next warm-up match is against India, also at Edgbaston, on 1st June and they also play West Indies three days later at the same venue.
Pakistan play South Africa on 3rd June at The Oval.
The set of warm-up matches continues tomorrow (31st May) when South Africa take on the Netherlands in Amsterdam.
The Champions Trophy gets underway on 6th June when India play South Africa.
