Rain was the winner yesterday for the second successive one-day cricket international at the Queenstown Events Centre.
Only 4.2 overs were bowled, Pakistan racing to 31 for no wicket, before rain – which had delayed the start – set in for the day.
Two summers ago, a West Indies-New Zealand one-dayer at the same venue was abandoned after only two and a half hours’ play.
Lakes Leisure events manager Jason Marrable says an encouraging crowd of about 3000 had rocked up before play began yesterday.
He says ticket-holders should call Ticketek to claim a refund.
