Sri Lanka may play Test match in Pakistan as security team gets satisfaction over security measures
92 NEWS - The Sri Lankan cricket team may return to Pakistan after a decade to play at least one Test match as the security team got satisfied with the security situation during its visit.The international cricket was halted in Pakistan after terrorists attacked Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009.
Sri Lanka and Pakistan were originally scheduled to play at a neutral venue, but Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) sent a security delegation to visit Pakistan after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) gave them an offer to play one match in Pakistan—it’s first of the World Test Championship.
ESPNcricinfo report says the security delegation gave SLC "very positive feedback" upon its return from Lahore and Karachi.
"The feedback we got from the security team was very positive," SLC CEO Ashley de Silva told ESPNcricinfo.
"We'll be talking to the PCB about some alternatives before we arrive at a decision. The government will be consulted as well," he said.
Pakistan last hosted a Test match on home soil in 2009.
In October 2017, a Sri Lanka team did play a one-off T20I in Lahore, but without a number of prominent players in the squad.
According to the ESPNcricinfo report, the major concern for the SLC now is obtaining individual players' consent to tour Pakistan. If all goes to plan, Sri Lanka will play at least one Test match in Pakistan in October.
It is learnt that the Sri Lankan cricket board will take its players into confidence before making an official announcement.
