RAWALPINDI – Today’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine encounter between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi in Rawalpindi was abandoned due to persistent rain and a damp outfield.

Heavy rainfall in Rawalpindi and Islamabad led to covers being placed on the stadium ground. Although the rain briefly halted, ground staff attempted to dry the field before the match’s cutoff time at 4:47 pm local time. However, the umpires deemed it unfeasible to begin the game within the stipulated time frame.

Both teams had arrived at the stadium, albeit their departure from the hotel was initially delayed.

Rawalpindi braces for a double-header today, with Islamabad United facing Quetta Gladiators alongside the postponed fixture between Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars. 

Yesterday also saw heavy rainfall in the area.

According to a Meteorological Office official, there are predictions of rain with thunderstorms on Saturday, potentially affecting the next two days, with Saturday likely experiencing the most significant impact.

In last game, Babar Azam led Peshawar Zalmi outclassed Islamabad United by 8 runs, while Lahore Qalandars were stunned by table toppers Multan Sultans by 60 runs.

Lahore Qalandars got their first point while the team so far lost all their six games. Despite getting point, Qalandars would not be able to advance to playoffs in cricket league.

Zalmi, on the other hand, will remain alive in the league. The squad gathered six points so far.
