Fakhar, Babar depart as rain intrupts Pak-Eng first ODI

LONDON: Pakistan lost opener Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam in the early stage of the first one-day international against England before rain interrupted the match at The Oval on Wednesday.
England won the toss and chose to put Pakistan to bat first. Rain delayed the scheduled toss and start of the match, reducing play to not more than 47 overs a side.
The series is expected to be a true test of preparations for Pakistan and England as they gear up for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup.
The series is taking place just a few weeks before the 50-over men’s tournament gets underway, with hosts England – the number one ranked side in ODI cricket – looking to win the Cup for the first time.– Agencies
