Colombo:

The third one-day international between Sri Lanka and Pakistan was abandoned due to rain in Colombo on Wednesday.

Pakistan were 12-2 off 6.2 overs after electing to bat when play was called off, with Asad Shafiq unbeaten on five and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq yet to open his account.

Pacemen Lasith Malinga and Nuwan Kulasekara each bagged one wicket for Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka made one change from the team which played the last game as they rested left-arm spinner Rangana Herath and brought in debutant Sajeewa Weerakoon.

Pakistan replaced paceman Rahat Ali with Shafiq.

The five-match series is currently tied 1-1, with Pakistan winning the opening one-dayer by six wickets and Sri Lanka winning the second game by 76 runs in Pallekele.

The fourth one-dayer will be played in Colombo on Saturday.
