Pakistan's quest for sufficient preparation ahead of their Champions Trophy campaign was hampered on Sunday, when the second and final ODI against Scotland at the Grange Cricket Club Ground in Raeburn Place, Edinburgh was washed out without a ball bowled.

Umpires Richard Kettleborough and Ian Ramage eventually inspected conditions at 14:30 local time (13:30 GMT), two hours and 45 minutes after the scheduled start, but ultimately decided the sodden ground was unfit for play.

Pakistan won the series opener by 96 runs at the same venue on Friday – thanks largely to captain Misbah-ul-Haq's authoritative half-century. They will soon travel to Ireland for two more matches before arriving in the UK for their Champions Trophy Group B fixtures against South Africa, India and the West Indies.
