The Pakistan Cricket Board Saturday confirmed Sri Lanka Cricket has postponed the upcoming U19 cricket series in light of the recent Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka that left over 200 dead. The training camp for the touring Pakistan side has also ended after the news.
The Pakistan U19 side was scheduled to travel to Colombo for two four-day and three one-day matches on Tuesday, 30 April.
PCB Director International Zakir Khan said: “We have received confirmation from Sri Lanka Cricket, who have expressed their inability to host the Pakistan U19 cricket team as per the original schedule due to earlier this week’s tragic events.
“The two boards are now working on alternative options, including the possibility of a series prior to the Pakistan U19’s tour of South Africa in June. As soon as these details are confirmed, the PCB will make a formal announcement.”
