The rain continued to pour down in Rawalpindi and Islamabad on Friday with short breaks. Groundsman head from Rawalpindi Stadium Sarfraz Ahmed said:

“We kept ourselves busy throughout the day. When the rain stops we make our best efforts to clear the field or at least clear the water from above the covers. This way chances of water creeping through the covers into the square or pitches are remote.

“I hope that things will improve drastically by early Saturday morning. What we need is a good few dry hours to make the things ready for the timely start of the second T20 international.”
