ESPNCricinfo: Rain had the final say in Colombo, as the second youth ODI between Sri Lanka and Pakistan was abandoned after a number of interruptions.

After rain reduced the match to a 36-over contest, Pakistan, opting to bat, failed to play out the full innings. Imran Rafiq, the captain and opener, top-scored with 50 in the team’s total of 175 in 34.3 overs. As many as six batsmen got off to starts, but the team’s next highest contribution after Rafiq came from the 23 extras conceded by Sri Lanka. Left-arm seamer Lahiru Kumara and offspinner Charith Asalanka picked up three wickets apiece. Sri Lanka lost their openers inside four overs of the chase and were 25 for 2 in six overs when play was called off.

Sri Lanka currently lead the series 1-0. The third ODI is scheduled to be held on Wednesday at the Sinhalese Sports Club.

Pakistan Under-19 175 (Imran Rafiq 50, Charith Asalanka 3-27, Lahiru Kumara 3-45) v Sri Lanka Under-19 25 for 2 in six overs. Match abandoned
