Sri Lankan cricket board to reassess security situation before sending its team to Pakistan

@OfficialSLC
Sri Lankan Cricket Board has decided to reassess security situation before sending its team to Pakistan following terror threat. In a statement, Sri Lanka Cricket said, they need to reassess their plan after receiving a warning from the Prime Minister's Office about a possible terror threat to the team.

The cricket board statement comes hours after naming second string squads for their proposed tour of Pakistan yesterday. AIR correspondent reports that Sri Lankan cricket board has sought government assistance to conduct a reassessment of the security situation in Pakistan ahead of the tour. The development came as 10 players of cricket team had opted out of the series beginning later this month on security grounds. The cricket board had named substitutes including captains of ODI and T20 teams yesterday only but the latest threat perception has put the holding of series in doubt. Pakistan cricket board in its reaction has reiterated its commitment to provide safety to Sri Lankan side and a final decision can be expected in coming days. 

Regular captains Dimuth Karunaratne and Lasith Malinga have already written to Sri Lanka Cricket about their unwillingness to tour to Pakistan. Eight other first team players have expressed similar views. Sri Lanka are scheduled to play three ODIS and as many T20Is in Karachi and Lahore between September 27 and October 9.
