The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a revised schedule of Pakistan U19 cricket team’s tour to Sri Lanka, which will now comprise five 50-over matches against Sri Lanka U19 in Hambantota from 26 May to 5 June.
The tour was originally planned from May 6-20, comprising two four-day matches and three 50-over matches. However, the series was postponed on April 27 by Sri Lanka Cricket following April 21 terror events in Colombo.
PCB Director International Cricket, Zakir Khan, said: “I am pleased to confirm the Pakistan U19 cricket team’s tour to Sri Lanka is now back on track following April 21 tragic events. Pakistan have themselves been a victim of terrorism. In the past decade, we have suffered massively, both financially and in terms of growing and developing cricket in our country, following international teams’ refusals to visit Pakistan.”
The Pakistan U19 squad has already been announced and the players have now been invited to attend a training camp at the NCA from 19 May.
