The third and final T20 International match between Bangladesh and Pakistan was called off without a ball being bowled following an incessant rain at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Monday.

The outcome meant, Pakistan took the series by 2-0. The hosts beat Bangladesh by five wickets in the first match and by nine wickets in the second match.

Having won the series, Pakistan retained their top spot in the ICC T20 rankings.

Pakistan could have been displaced from the top spot should Bangladesh win at least one match in the series.

The rain eased out for a brief period to give a hope of curtailed match but it came back with zeal and ensured no play was possible in the final T20I here as Bangladesh was looking for a consolation victory.

However with that disappointment, Bangladesh ended the first phase of three phase’s tour of Pakistan.

The Tigers would tour Pakistan again on February 6, to play the first Test at Rawalpindi, slated to be held from February 7-11.

The third and final phase of the tour will be held in April.

Bangladesh would play an ODI and the second Test in that phase. While the ODI is scheduled to be held on April 3, the second Test begins from April 5-9. Both the ODI and the Test match will be hosted by Karachi in that phase.

Due to the security concern, the Government suggested the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to stay Pakistan for shorter period. And therefore the tour was decided to be held in three phase
