COLOMBO: Sri Lankan board has decided against playing Test matches in Pakistan despite satisfactory feedback by the Lankan delegation, who visited Pakistan to review the security situation.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) were hopeful that Sri Lankan cricket team would travel to Pakistan in early October, which would have helped Pakistan resume international cricket in the country.
The information was revealed by a British reporter stationed in Colombo, Azzam Ameen, on his Twitter account where he said:
“Sri Lanka will not play Test Cricket in Pakistan, We are planning to play 3 ODIs in Pakistan – Sports Minister
It is worth mentioning that the PCB is yet to confirm this news. In addition to that, it remains to be seen whether PCB agrees to play three ODIs in Pakistan especially after Sri Lankan board has backtracked on its promise to play Test cricket in Pakistan.
