The scheduled third T20 international between England and Pakistan at Cardiff's Sophia Gardens was called off on Tuesday due to continuous rain. The umpires determined that the wet conditions made it impossible to play, resulting in England leading the four-match series 1-0. The previous match in Leeds also suffered the same fate, being washed out without any action.

The final match before the teams head to the T20 World Cup in the United States and West Indies is set to take place at The Oval on Thursday, with some rainfall expected in London. England, the reigning T20 World Cup champions, secured victory in the second match at Edgbaston last Saturday, defeating Pakistan by 23 runs. Conversely, Pakistan were the runners-up at the 2022 tournament.

Notably, England would be missing their captain, Jos Buttler, in the warm-up game, as he had returned home to support his wife during the birth of their third child.
