Pallekele: Heavy rain forced the second day of the third and final Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan on Monday to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Australian umpires Simon Taufel and Steve Davis called off play in the afternoon with dark clouds indicating more rain to come.

Sri Lanka were struggling at 44 for 3 in response to Pakistan's first innings of 226.

Heavy rain forced the 2nd day of the third Test between SL and Pakistan to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Sri Lanka lead 1-0 in the series after winning the first Test by 209 runs at Galle. A placid pitch at Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo ensured the second Test last week ended in a draw.

Sri Lanka are looking for their first Test series win since beating New Zealand at home in 2009.
