Pakistan seamers came back well after a lacklustre morning session on Day 1
Second new ball taken
Pakistan rushed through till the 80th over mark with spin on both ends. And now Shaheen Afridi has been brought back with the second new ball. Crucial 30-minute spell forthcoming.
Play to resume
The groundstaff have worked their magic and we're actually going to have more play today. Real cricket. The middle session starts at 1.45pm local and will go up to 4pm.
The rain has stopped in Rawalpindi and the covers are being taken off. Yet to hear a time for the restart, but this is very encouraging.
Lunch taken early
The lunch break has been taken slightly early with rain not relenting. No resumption on the cards anytime soon. But while we can't promise any play, we'll get you the lunch menu from Rawalpindi as and when we have it.
Rain stops play
So there you go. The umpires couldn't have gone on much longer in the drizzle, and their decision was simplified as it started growing heavy. Just as predicted, we've got a rain interruption. Back with more updates as we have them.
De Silva's non-dismissal and his fifty
Pakistan thought they had de Silva, or so they were led on to believe by keeper Mohammad Rizwan's celebration. But even as the soft signal was out, the third umpire found conclusive evidence to overturn that call. The ball had clearly bounced in front, disturbing the turf, before going into Rizwan's mitts. Lovely delivery from Naseem though, having it straighten from back of a length to find the edge. Nevertheless, de Silva survives. And he also gets to fifty off the very next ball. SL battle on, on this damp morning.
Rain in the air
It's starting to come down as predicted, but the umpires have decided to stick around for now.
Weather not forgiving
It's another cold, chilly morning in Rawalpindi with thick cloud cover overhead. The umpires are even armed with lightmeters as they make their way out. But you can always turn to the Pakistani hospitality for some warmth. Look how inviting it is. No look:
