The opening test of Pakistan’s tour to Sri Lanka has not yet started due to rainfall in Galle. The heavy and expected rain didn’t even allowed the teams to step out for the toss. Both the teams stayed in their hotels since morning and umpires called it a day at 1:45PM after the detailed inspection.
Officials have decided to add a half an hour extra to the next four days of the test match. The game will start 15 minutes earlier than its usual time and the middle session i.e after lunch and before tea will also be extended for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile Misbah ul Haq, the skipper for Pakistan in test cricket have shown courage and confidence against Herath by saying that we are ready to face Herath this year as we have worked hard on our defence against Hearth. Herath played an outstanding role against Pakistan last year where he took a total of 23 wickets in just 4 innings.
