PSL 9: Lahore Qalandars vs. Peshawar Zalmi Match Abandoned Due to Rain

The anticipated clash between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League. PSL 9 came to an abrupt halt due to persistent rain at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

Despite initial efforts to commence the match, the incessant downpour forced the umpires to delay the toss as the ground remained covered to shield against the rain.

Brief pauses in the rain provided hope for play to resume, prompting ground staff to work tirelessly to prepare the pitch. However, the return of heavy rain dashed any hopes of the game proceeding, leading the umpires to call off the match.

The unfortunate weather conditions not only affected the Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi encounter but also cast doubt on the subsequent match between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United at the same venue.

With the match declared abandoned, Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi each earned one point. This point comes as a relief for Lahore Qalandars, who are currently at the bottom of the points table, having faced six consecutive losses in the tournament.

On the other hand, Peshawar Zalmi occupies the third position in the standings with seven points, maintaining a competitive position in the league despite the weather-induced setback.
