The opening Champions Trophy warm-up match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The day/night fixture at Edgbaston was the victim of persistent rain and, after a series of pitch inspections, the umpires decided to call it off shortly after 4pm.

The next warm-up fixtures, India versus Sri Lanka at the same ground and Australia against the West Indies in Cardiff, take place on Saturday.

Pakistan's last chance to practice before the tournament proper comes against South Africa at The Oval on Monday.
