Persistent rain washed out the third T20I between Pakistan and Bangladesh at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium on Monday, 27 January. The hosts took the series 2-0.

There was no question of an inspection taking place as it continued to pelt down throughout the afternoon in Lahore. The game was called off about half an hour before the cut-off time for a five-over contest.

Pakistan, having won the first two games, took the series; it was their first since October 2018 and with it, they consolidated their top position in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings.

The one-off Test will be played in Rawalpindi from Friday, February 7. It will be the first five-day game between the two sides in five years, and also the first in Pakistan between them since September 2003.
