Both Islamabad and Quetta teams refrained from heading to the stadium and remained at their respective hotels.

This marks the second consecutive match washout following the earlier abandonment between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi.

Similar to yesterday, Rawalpindi and Islamabad experienced heavy rainfall.

According to a Met Office official, the chances of rain accompanied by thunderstorms remain high for Saturday, with unpredictable downpours anticipated over the next two days.

Despite the rain, Pindi Stadium continues to draw enthusiastic crowds, enhancing the vibrancy of international matches and PSL encounters. Temporary seating for approximately ten thousand spectators has been arranged for the nine matches scheduled at the venue over the next ten days.

Notably, Pindi Stadium witnessed two of the highest PSL totals in history, with Multan Sultans amassing 262 against Quetta Gladiators, and Quetta scoring 253 against Multan in the same fixture.

To balance gameplay, the PCB has directed curators to prepare pitches favoring both bowlers and batsmen, signaling a departure from the stadium’s previous reputation for “flat pitches.”
