Pakistan Retain Top Spot in T20 as 3rd T20 Called Off Due to Rain

LAHORE: The final match of the three-match Twenty20 series between Pakistan and Bangladesh, which was scheduled to take place at 2 pm at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium on Monday, was called off due to heavy and continued rain.

With the cancellation of the match, Pakistan have won the T20 series 2-0, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Twitter. The development also means that Pakistan retain their number one T20I ranking, journalist Faizan Lakhani noted in a tweet.
Pakistan had already clinched the series after handing a comprehensive defeat to Bangladesh in the previous two matches of the series. On Saturday, the hosts had comfortably chased the 137-run target set by the visiting team, who had won the toss and elected to bat first.

Pakistan had won the first match by five wickets.
