Pakistan won the two-match ODI series 1-0 against Scotland after rain washed away the second one-dayer.

The match was to be played at Grange Cricket Club Ground, Edinburgh but the stadium remained covered in thick blanket of fog, which made it impossible for cricket.  The ground had been witnessing a heavy rain since the previous day and drizzling continued today for most of the day.

Because the match was on Sunday, a large number of Pakistan fans had shown up. But after inspecting the ground and the pitch several times, the umpires could not decide to give the green light to the play, and later called off the match around 3pm (local time).

Pakistan beat the hosts by 96 runs at the same venue on Friday.

Pakistan will now head for Ireland where they are set to play two ODIs on May 23 and 26. The green shirts then leave for England where the 2013 Champions Trophy is going to begin from June 6. Pakistan will also play two warm-up matches before the tournament.
