After a successful staging of a full-fledged tour which consisted of 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is in Pakistan, Sri Lankan cricketers returned to their country with happy faces. However, Sri Lanka Cricket President Shammi Silva displayed displeasure on being locked up in the hotel.
The 59-year old highlighted the biological needs of human beings to roam freely while talking about returning to Pakistan for a two-match Test series in December.
These comments didn’t go down well with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as it expressed disappointment on receiving such remarks despite providing top-level security to the Islanders.
To counter these views, the governing body of cricket in Pakistan contacted Sri Lanka cricket officials to reveal that every proposal put forth by PCB for outdoor activities was rejected.
Hence, PCB believes that the comments of Shammi Silva aren’t right as players were never forced to lock themselves up in the hotel. Moreover, PCB promised top security for the red-ball series as the fans are sitting anxiously to see Pakistan hosting a Test match after a decade.
