Sri Lanka Cricket hoping to materialize Pakistan tour

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has contacted Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and has offered Karachi and Lahore as venues for a two-match Test series, which will be a part of the ICC Test Championship, and is scheduled for later this year.

Now that SLC has received Pakistan’s invitation, they will consider the possibilities to make this tour happen. However, according to Secretary SLC, the tour will materialize after an extensive security evaluation of Pakistan.

“We are seriously looking at it, especially at a time when some countries have reservations about touring Sri Lanka following the recent terrorist attack,” said Mohan de Silva, Secretary SLC. “But it will be after a thorough evaluation of the security situation there”.

Over the last few years, PCB has stepped up its efforts to bring international cricket back to the country. They hosted the Pakistan Super League with the participation of foreign players, an ICC World XI (2017) and West Indies (2018), for three-match T20I series, and Sri Lanka (2017) for a one-off T20I.
