1 pm local (1200 GMT) update - Raining still. There was a brief period when the sun made its presence and the covers were off for a bit but then the rain came back. So the covers are back on. The cut-off time for a T20 match is 3.02 pm local (1402 GMT) but the forecast says heavy rain till 3 pm local. Fingers crossed for any sort of a game but will the players take the risk? MATCH CONTINUES TO BE DELAYED BY RAIN. PREVIEW - Just ahead of the World cup, things are just slipping out of the way for Pakistan as they've remained winless in their last 10 ODIs and adding salt to the wound is their defeat against Afghanistan in their first warm-up game. With Babar Azam 's century it looked like they had the game in their pocket but lower order's underperformance and their unimpressive bowling saw them succumb to yet another loss. Their bowling unit again failed to get wickets at crucial moments of the game, the trend we have been witnessing since their arrival in England. And this would be their final chance to make some much-needed adjustments and justify their composition before they take on West Indies in the tournament proper. On the other hand, Bangladesh would be oozing with the confidence with their recent tri-series win in Ireland. After the blow of clean sweep against Kiwis, Bangla tigers came back roaring. They completely outplayed the other teams and clinched the trophy. They look like a balanced side with their senior players contributing and showing good form. Known for creating upsets in big tournaments, Bangladesh would be the side to look forward to in the show piece event. This will be a good chance for the Mashrafe Mortaza led side to test themselves in English conditions.
