LIVE: The match has been called off due to rain.

This ends Pakistan’s warm-up games before the World Cup.

Bangladesh still have India to play against in one last warm-up before Tuesday.

CARDIFF: Pakistan will be hoping to register a win in their last warm-up game against Bangladesh before the ICC Cricket World Cup gets under way.

The match is scheduled to begin at 2:30pm at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff today.

Pakistan have suffered 11 consecutive defeats against Australia and England. Pakistan lost their first warm-up match to Afghanistan by three wickets at Bristol on Friday.

Bangladesh will be feeling a bit more confident about lifting a maiden tri-nation one-day series in Ireland beating West Indies in the final.

On the other hand, Pakistan is yet to score a win against Bangladesh since March 2014, losing four matches in a row.


Another run-fest is expected at the Sophia Gardens where South Africa made 338/7 in their warm-up tie against Sri Lanka.


Pakistan: Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain/wicketkeeper), Asif Ali, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz
